What Are Your Goals For The Next Year?

23 replies
I have read in numerous places that it isn't enough to simply have a vague idea of where you want to go, but...

...to be successful you must have clear cut short and long-term goals written down and made public.

So these are my goals for the next year:

1. I will have a $4,000/month IM and copywriting business by October 2009. By April 2010, I will have raised it to $10,000/month by raising my fees and having more products to promote.

2. I will finish a half marathon by August 2009, a 50K race by October, 10 2009, a 50-mile run by January 2010, and a 100-mile run by April 2010. I plan on training the smart and efficient way and build my mileage up gradually to decrease the risk of injury.

3. I will start medical school in August. My goal is to finish my first year on the Dean's List and understand all the I can about human anatomy, health, and disease so I can start to help people with their ailments.

Those are my BIG goals for the next year. I know that making them public with you (and the Universe), I will easily be able to accomplish them.

What are YOUR GOALS for the next year? Share them here so you, too can make them public and therefore have a reason to stop procrastinating.

    Resolutions for 2010:

    After setting up the groundwork for my business model in the final weeks of 2009, this is what I plan for 2010:

    1.) Continue to scale my efforts on what I find that works - go from doing well to doing brilliantly

    2.) Once regularly and consistently banking off one method, branch out my marketing arsenal to master other areas

    3.) Say goodbye to LIVING off a J.O.B. (I wouldn't mind keeping my current job as "extra cash" - I'm an arts 'n' crafts nut working in an arts 'n' crafts store - so long as it doesn't cause me drama, but second it gives me hell I'm gone)

    4.) Pay off all debt

    5.) Take advantage of the great chance to start over and learn how to properly manage a budget

    6.) Get a really nice apartment

    7.) Get a car

    8.) Start losing weight again and resume a healthy lifestyle in general

    In all that you do, know your True INTENT...

    One of the big goals would be to see more success with the site projects that I am working with. Seeing success there would be a pretty decent goal to realize this year.
