So I know that many people set goals, well if you're not then you should be !
Im talking not only business goals but personal goals ... BUT
Here's the thing I believe many people miss and I believe it to be of HUGE importance. When you set goals you MUST also set a date to accomplish that goal.
Without a date to complete or achieve the goal then it is merely an idea that you have. I just today have reflected on my year so far, my growth and where I now want to be.
So i'll get this started, STATE your goals and DATE them ( by the way, you must work towards your goals and BELIEVE you can achieve them )
Well my goal in October of last year in 2008 my goal was to make $1 online and to build a successful blog and start an email list. All of which I have achieve but now I REALLY want to step it up....
1 ) Online business income of $10,000 per month ( recurring income )
2 ) To clear my loans and credit cards debts completely
3 ) To build an email list of 10,000 with a strong relationship
4 ) To employ at least 1 full time VA
Those four goals I will achieve by March 1st 2010 .. This gives me around 6 months to do it.
( bear in mind I am no where close to these goal, they are HUGE for me.. to put it clearly my recurring income is currently at around $800 pm )
And one final goal, more personal this one .... I just asked my mum what she wants in March 2010, the answer she gave believing I wasnt being serious was for something costing around $13,000.
5 ) Give my mum $13,000 on March 1st 2010
So there we have mine guys, my goals laid out for all to see and be held accountable to. But not just goals .. DATES to be achieved by !
Lets hear yours then my friend, I'm looking forward to reading !!
P.S - If you don't believe you can do it, then you wont !
