Blogger's Goal Sheet - a prototype

Postby shri » Wed Oct 01, 2008 8:14 pm

Goals are like map while hitting the unfamiliar road. They direct you to your destination.

Some Great Quotes About Goals:
The tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.” –Benjamin Mays

“By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands — your own.” –Mark Victor Hansen

So What is your blogging goal?

If you have a strong positive answer and are pretty sure about it, then ignore this post and move forward to achieving your goals.

But if you don’t have set goals yet….this IS the first step. List down your long-term & short-term goals. Long-term probably for a period of 6-12 months. And short term goals for a month.
(Note: Your goals must be achievable, small, next step goals).

Hi Shri,
I think it's really awesome and I need to sit down and really map out my own blog goals. I have to be honest that many of the things on your goal list are way over my head BUT I'll get there one day I'm sure. Thank you so much for sharing that with all of us. Very kind of you :)

That's a very comprehensive list! Thanks for posting it.

I think a good next step would be to isolate the goals that you want to accomplish first, and then break them down into next actions.

Keep the sheet with your blog goal plan and refer to it every day during the time that you put aside just for this. (or on the days that you have planned to work on it)

How are you doing with it?
