Goal Review

I had a reminder that came up today telling me to look back over my goals from New Years. I'm encouraged to see that I'm making progress on the goals I set, but I'm a little discouraged that I haven't done more.
I have a goal to sell 500 books and though sales are good now, I'm short of my goal. I had anticipated the books being in Books a Million in Birmingham. They told me they would carry them but the timing of the book was unfortunate in that it came out during one of the worst economic downturns in my life.
I contacted their buyer last week and I'm waiting to hear back. I'm fairly sure I can get interviewed by The Birmingham News and other papers in town, but I really need distribution.
If anyone has any contacts at BAM, I wish you'd put in a good word for me.
Also, any ideas on how to push a few books would be appreciated.
I'm also falling short on my goal to write 12 new songs this year. So far, we've written two. The year is almost half over and I'm NOT on target for this goal.
I've come to understand that life is about focus. If you don't focus, you drift like an oak leaf on a fast moving stream....a vessel without a rudder.
