Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF



Another Friday and only about one workday to the weekend. It looks like we are going to make it. (maybe I shouldn’t say that too loud). This has been a busy week. More editing work on the next book and a beta read has pretty much occupied my week. Hard to put my finger on anything definitive that I could rack up as an accomplishment. I guess continuing to make progress is an accomplishment. I guess we should all feel that as long as we are moving forward, we are making a dent in our to do list. Today’s JohnKu talks about accomplishment.

Accomplishment by John W. Howellย ยฉ 2017

Goals set. We are told,

Each day we should finish one . . .

Well, how about a smile?


  1. Happy Friday John! I’m heading out of town to have a girls weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your weekend and don’t work too hard.

    1. Thank you, Lennon. A super weekend wish to you. Sounds like fun. :-).

  2. I’ll drink to that. A smile is good progress. I love the little guy at the top. ๐Ÿ˜€ — Suzanne

    1. ha ha ha. Thanks, Suzanne. I thought he was cute as well. Have a great weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    A finished goal deserves a smile. Nice image… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Sometimes the goal should be the smile and we should feel good about accomplishing it. Too often we concentrate on things or events and miss out on the true values. Happy weekend, Gwen. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. “Well, how about a smile?” Count me in!!

    1. You are in. I love that goal. Sometimes hard to reach but always worth it. Thanks, GP

  5. “It looks like we are going to make it.” *looks at chaos already ensuing in house* Think you guys will have to leave me behind. Remember me fondly. Tell my story, but add ninjas and a couple of explosions.

    1. We will put your ashes in a big firework and light up the sky. OOOOOOH it’s Charles. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Why do I imagine my ashes suddenly getting sucked into a plane engine.

      2. Ha ha ha. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Loved this JohnKu! I’m off work today and plan to tackle some of my goals. Great meme! Happy Friday, John!

    1. You go! I’m sure those goals will be history. Happy Friday, Jill. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. BTW, Jill. I forgot to say GO BEARS!!!!!!!!

      1. Ack! I’ll be pulling for your team…NOT! ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. I feel the same. (Good luck)

  7. Well done John. And yes, “continuing to make progress is an accomplishment” — I know because I make so little progress! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy weekend. TGIF — to a long and extra frustrating week. Mega hugs.

    1. One could hardly tell your week was frustrating. You hide it so well behind your fabulous stories. Hugs and a wish for a restful weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Making progress is definitely an accomplishment, so celebrate your week’s work! Have a great weekend. Our weather this weekend is going to be more spring-like and I plan to enjoy it. Who knows what’s coming down the line weatherwise! Hugs, my friend.

    1. Thank you, Michelle. Yes, enjoy is on the goal list. Hugs to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. A smile is always a worthwhile goal – no matter who’s doing the smiling or whether or not you caused it! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Have a great weekend, everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thanks, Jan. The idea of the JohnKu is to take time to appreciate life. Have a great weekend too!:-)

  10. Goals are only things we set to keep us moving forward. ๐Ÿ™‚ I set goals every week and most always I fall short, but that’s okay. I keep moving. Sounds like a great productive week for you.

    1. Thanks, Jan. I suspect you have a strong goal program for yourself. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Lovely thought, John – head into the weekend with a smile!

    1. Good idea. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Happy Friday! Looks like rain in our forecast, but at least I’m not shoveling!!

    1. Rain is a little lighter. Happy weekend,Debbie.:-)

  13. This is a perfect JohnKu for my week. I need to remember that smile, even when the goals stack up. As long as I am accomplishing something, it’s still moving ahead!

    Happy Friday!

    1. Thank you, Mae. That is the point this week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Like the Johnku. Another productive week from the sound of things. Enjoy the margarita.

    1. Thank you, Guy. Have a great weekend.

  15. Smiles are the order of the day on this blog, John.

    1. Thank you, Hook. Smiles are important

    1. Thanks Audrey. Enjoy the weekend as well.

  16. Little late – traveling all day yesterday. Moving forward is better than moving backward – progress.

    1. It is. Don’t forget the smile. ๐Ÿ™‚
