Weekly goals work!

Last Update: June 04, 2017

About a week ago I began setting weekly goals for the things I wanted to accomplish building my site and doing the lessons. This was from the teaching of a member of the community. I must say it has served me well. I passed this idea on to others who seem to agree it is a less stressful way of staying engaged without thinking about ALL the stuff that needs to be accomplished here, working on our sites, etc.

I'd like to thank Bo for this. In the last day I have accomplished more than in the last four days. Mostly because I wanted to achieve my weekly goal. A system that I think works great. I does for me anyway. Reaching these shorter goals help to keep the excitement alive and keeps me moving forward. These aren't giant lofty goals mind you. These are what I know I am capable of achieving with a little "push" thrown in.

It may not work for you, but if you are struggling to get things done and feel defeated, you should try it.

Looking forward to the next weeks challenges.

Cheers!

Monthly, weekly and daily chores or goals, the ones proposed and the ones kept, especially the small important ones, will create a lot of WINS for you that motivate you faster, higher and further.

That's awesome Mark! I do the same. I get my week organized and follow it.

I love checking things off of the list! It makes you feel good :)

I agree with how helpful Bo is. He is kind with a lot of patience and goes into detail along with a couple of other members of course training in the same way.

Love the community help here!

Awww thank you so much Mark.

When I run into those heavy duty difficult techy things I have to share them with everyone so we all learn.

Did you end up adding the structured data errors plugin? I can't remember. Now THAT was a huge one to deal with, I had to find a solution and eventually did!

Thanks again, always here to help :)

No, I don't believe I added that plugin. Not going to anytime soon if it's going to be a monster, lol!

Mark Did you read my update? my errors kept climbing to 35 pages and 22 errors. I'm down to 5 pages and 5 errors I updated my stats in the Updated post. When they are down to 0 I'll post another picture to show that.

Several have already added it and know to be patient it takes a while. It will be 3 weeks for me soon. The bulk of them were done in 2 weeks.

This plugin is harmless, it automatically corrects structured data errors. I'm not a fan of plugin's with this one I have 4 in total that's it.

I'm laughing at that word 'monster'. I am sitting here typing to you am I not? I'm still alive.

I am the Queen of being a chicken for trying stuff but I tested it for ALL of us for 2 weeks and it works.

I'm with you. I don't like trying anything new either. Besides building a website? Ya right! Also my techie wisdom sucks (sorry) and I would hate to start something and spend all my time trying to make it work right. Building my site is hard enough when I get the time.
But, you being a Monster Master now ( lol :0) and if you think I should and could do it I will.
I have no idea what my stats are at the moment.

Hi, no worries. I'm like you my tech skills don't exist but I couldn't stand to see the errors rise. I took the chance and now others did also. I tested it for 2wks.

Anyway, for stats do you mean the structured data errors?
Go to Google Search Console and where Search Appearance is, click on Structured Data you will see that it's the pictures I posted. The stats are there.

You don't feel comfortable so it's all good. I was at the point where I didn't care anymore so I just went and added the plugin and ran. Haha. Started taking peeks and thought it wasn't working at first it takes a while.

I'll leave it for now. Send me a private message whenever you want about this or anything else. We all have each other here for help and guidance. No I'm not a Monster master, still the illiterate girl who is learning.

Thanks Becky.
LOL!!! I'm no where near the league of Bo or Paul. I'm still just a tadpole.
I'm sure you're doing great if you're working on your site regularly.

I will and I plan on doing just that! I'm anxious to get to the end, I think that is the most frustrating part of it all!

This is an excellent opportunity and I just have to keep doing. Howard said that it's a marathon, not a race! Haha! Oh, yeah!

Thanks, Veronica

Becky :)
