Goal Setting for Greatness 2015-07-06
Welcome to my weekly goal setting linky. Thank you to everyone who joined in last week; for those who didn’t, here’s how it works. You can set yourself some goals, and join up to the linky – then we all leave positive and supportive comments on each other’s posts. Next week, we all come back and review how we did with this week’s goals, and then set some more.
I also set myself monthly goals, which you are of course welcome to join in with.
The only rules are that you must visit the two people directly ahead of you, and leave a supportive comment on their blog. There’s also a badge at the bottom of the page to add to your post.
Goals for July: An Update
Increase my Income by 5% – I was going to say 10%, but I’d rather make an achievable goal and nail it. I have lots of ideas up my sleeve, and more time for work than I have over the last six months so I’m confident I can drum up some more work.
Work on the Background of the Blog – I feel like now I’m in a routine with regard to posting, but there are lots of things I’d like to sort out with regard to the nuts and bolts of it. Things like sorting the categories and editing older posts which haven’t been touched since I moved over to self-hosted in October last year. Time to get going!
Write an E-Book – at the beginning of this year I wrote a list of blogging goals for the year and publishing an e book was on that list. I’ve done very little towards achieving that goal, despite the fact I’ve had several ideas buzzing about my head. July marks the start of the second half of the year, so it’s time to pull my socks up and get on with it!
Last Week’s Weekly Goals
Send at least 2 pitch emails – er, not in so many words – though I did make a few phone calls.
Get my monthly newsletter sent out on time – nailed it. It was sent out on July 1st. My plan for next month is to improve it, and hve another giveaway for my readers.
Write at least 10,000 words for the book – Nope! I didn’t even write 1000… but I did change my mind about the book I’m writing, and this one needs a little more research – which I did do.
This week’s goals
Send at least two pitch emails – Yep, I still need to do this!
Perform daily blogging tasks – I signed up for a programme called “31 Days to Better Blogging” – there’s a daily podcast and a workbook and so far it’s proving to be really useful, so I want to keep up my momentum by listening to the podcasts and doing the work.
Get to 10,000 words on the e-book – I’ve been researching lots and making notes. I have a rough outline now so all I need to do is fill in the gaps… ha, all I need to do.
Now it’s your turn! If you’d like to join in please add the badge below to your post, and link it up here:
This linky will be live until Wednesday evening (BST), so feel free to add a post later in the week if you’ve not got round to setting any goals yet.
