How Do You Set Your Goals?
First of all, a very happy and prosperous New Year to all my fellow Wealthy Affiliate's.
I have been inspired to write this blog post after reading Roope's excellent blog post, entitled;
"4-Step Challenge: 50,000 NEW Subscribers in 4 Months"! You can see the link to Roope's post below. I would encourage you to read Roope's blog post.
I was wondering how you set your goals? I'm good at having a list and working through an often quite a challenging long list. However, I do have goals in my mind where I would like to be, but there's nothing set in concrete or any particular time limits. So in other words, there is no real pressure, if I'm honest with myself, I need to get things done by a given time I think probably the best way is to set deadlines and make sure that I reach the particular deadline.
I actually find the thought of selling deadlines quite challenging, however, I really believe that setting deadlines and goals could really give my online business a boost.
With my off-line business, I set myself challenges as I know I have to be at certain places at certain times and have to finish at a half sensible time. It doesn't always go quite to plan as sometimes there are unforeseen challenges, like road traffic or there is more work than I thought. Most of my quoting is carried out over the phone and through photographs, so there is a little bit of guesswork when quoting.
The reason I say this is that when I reach my goal on my off-line business, it really is satisfying and rewarding. The more I think about setting goals for my online business, the more I think it could potentially multiply sales and move things on much quicker.
I have to say that Roope's article is really fantastic and for me, very thought-provoking.
Something I do sometimes is to set myself a given time to write a blog post or to do a particular task, this helps to keep me more focused and on target.
I would be interested to hear how other members go about setting goals or do you actually even set goals at all?
Have you seen a difference in productivity and income since you set goals?
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on goal setting.
