Goal Setting for Greatness

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 – this went completely to pot again. I was working with a client all day on Monday, and S was home from nursery poorly for the rest of the week so I was limited to doing the bare minimum of work.

Perform daily blogging tasks – I’m up to date with the daily podcasts I’ve been listening to; I find because they’re only ten minutes long, I can listen while washing up, or while S is in the shower. I’ve not done all of the tasks listed in them, but I’m planning to go back and re-listen to all of them once the month is over, so I can pick up anything I’ve missed.

Get to 10,000 words on the e-book – this is another thing that went out the winow with S being ill. I’ve been doing the bare minimum to get by in all aspects of my life, as evenings have been mostly spent trying to calm her.

This week’s goals

Get back up to date with my work – In order to get through last week I did the absolute bare minimum of work. I need to get back up to speed with everything I allowed to slide.
Nail the blog comments – I write posts every week in order to join in with certain linkys. And then the day of the linky comes around, and I don’t link up because I don’t feel like I have the time to then go and comment on other entries. I think if I can organise my time a bit better, I can probably do it – and there’s no point in writing these posts if I’m not linking them up, so I really should make the effort!
Prioritise and work on one e-book – did I mention I actually have two e-books on the go at the moment? I’m never going to finish either if I flit between the two, so I need to sort myself out and just prioritise one over the other!


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:
