7 DAY Challenge with SMART Goals

Last Update: September 15, 2016

I was reading a couple of new blog post today on WA and came across this post from Marlene W about Goal Setting


We have been taught that our goals NEED to meet the Acrostic “SMART which stands for

S – Specific and Significant

M – Measurable and Meaningful

A – Attainable and Action-Oriented

R – Relevant and Rewarding

T – Time-bound and Track-able

I’d like to lay down a challenge to everyone on my list that reads this blog.

What are you going to do THIS WEEK that will move your business forward?

Please think about this before you make a commitment.

The idea is to do something or a group of things that is within your skills but PUSH YOU.

My commitment is

2 Post this week to ChooseSuccess.ca

Publish 1 Post to BarrWorld.com and have 3 more to be published on successive Tuesdays

Complete another set of courses.

Comment on 5 blogs per day with comments of substance.

What Can You Do In 7 Days?

Percy, thanks for the reminder about SMART goals. It's good to have something to work towards instead of wandering around as if in the dark. Good luck!

Kate - Lol!! Thats me - wandering around in the dark.

Me too most of the time. Then I remember I have goals and need direction. So I squirm around a bit more, stub my toe and then remember again. It's hard to get started with goals sometimes. :)

That's quite a challenge you've set for yourself, Percy. But I think it's definitely true to say that if you've got a SMART goal down on paper, then you've set yourself up for success.

I like the idea of planning a blog/post schedule, particularly since content is so critical in generating traffic.

Thanks Steve

So what are you going to do in the next 7 days to generate more traffic?
StepChook Premium
Well, I've already done the following:

1) switched SEO to Yoast
2) refactored ALL of my posts and pages (19 in total) so that they are fully optimized.
3) used Google Webmaster to re-index, update sitemaps, apply data highlighting

To do in the next 7 days:
1) create more content (add at least two new posts)
2) work on my social media presence

Let's hope it all pays off!

I see StepChook you are doing the switched SEO to Yoast, refactored ALL,,,,,

Can you please tell me where I can get the instructions to do such?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Sharon,

It's really simple. All I did was:
1) log into your site if you haven't already done so.
2) on the left hand side, find Plugins and click Add New
3) in the search box, type "Yoast"
4) from the result set, pick "Yoast SEO" (the one with the traffic light)
5) click Install Now, then Activate
6) then simply follow instructions from there

DO NOT deactivate All In One SEO before fully installing Yoast! Yoast will prompt you when ready to deactivate All In One SEO.

I would also suggest backing up your site before you do anything. I use Filezilla: If you have any issues, just ask.

I encourage you to watch Jim-bo's video on Yoast: It's really handy.
