Today I want to talk more about setting goals. Its important when setting a goal, that it is a SMART goal. For many you will have already heard what that means. But for a quick review a SMART goal is:
- Specific -exactly what you want
- Measurable – how much and by when
- Time – determine a time frame to achieve it by
A few of my personal goals for 2016 are
- To Earn at Least $3,000 from my various ventures monthly by December 31, 2016 @ 5:00 pm EST
- Attend the 2016 Marketers Cruise (its sold out but I am working on it!)
- To write and release 2 ebooks by June 30, 2016.
Now these are pretty outrageous goals, since I am basically starting at zero…but I feel confident I will make them. Keep watching here over the next year to see my progress.
Most of you may not have quite that aggressive of a plan, but even earning $100 a month extra can help many people enjoy more freedom or even save up for a special vacation.
In order to be able to attain my first goal, it is essential to be very organized so my time online is not spent in wasted time, looking for passwords, etc. Since I have been playing at this for a few years, I have almost 500 different programs I have signed up to, but many I have not made the most of, so I got a system out to get more organized and keep track of my many streams of income. This system is called Organized in 3 Days. The length of time it will take to work through this will vary greatly depending on if you are brand new to online marketing or if you are already in many programs. The great thing about it is that it is a small one time fee for some good tools to be more organized and profitable.
No matter how you decide to organize yourself, you will be glad you took the time as your streams of income increase, so at the very least, grab a spiral notebook or make a spreadsheet on your computer to keep track of your usernames, passwords and other vital information.
So time for me to get back to work, what about you? Lets get ready..2016 is only 2 days away!
