Motivation Monday – Make A Plan

Untitled design(9)

It is customary for most people, that January is all about setting goals and I am not averse to setting goals of my own in January either.  In fact, there is nothing better than sitting down with a new diary, reflecting on the past year and then setting some new goals to achieve in the coming year, month or week.

The thing with goals, if you want to reach them, then it is not just a case of having the goal in mind, a plan is needed to get you there.

Today’s Motivation Monday is just that – a call to you to make a plan, and it doesn’t matter if the goal is a small one or something big.  Think of your plan as being like a road map, a way to get you from your starting point to where you want to be.

My plan for the next few months is to get a mailing list up and running but in order to do that, I need to plan what content I want to e-mail out to my subscribers, write up some content, choose a mailing provider and learn how to use the software, create an opt-in form and link it all to my blog.  In amongst all of that are lots of little steps that I need to take including searching online for tutorials and other online learning so that I can learn the necessary skills involved with email subscriptions.

As the saying goes “Plan your work then work your plan” and that goes for all sorts of plans that you make!

What are some goals and plans that you have for the year?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. Hey Suze 🙂

    Is email the right strategy to go forwards with? Have you considered operating a ‘mailing list’ a bit more directly from the likes of a FB Group Page perhaps? The reason l bring this up is because emails are so many now, that even with the best intetnions by sender and receiver, emails are nearly 90% ignored these days. Where as social media platforms designed in a more ‘social manner’ may provide you with more intel and potential business.

    Just a thought.

    1. I was thinking the same, I’m not sure how many people would subscribe and what I would send out to people! I’m glad you are thinking the same! xxx

  2. People don’t trust brands anymore Suzi, they trust people who recommend brands – that’s the way forwards 🙂 So brand yourself and launch 🙂 The best way is people want to see the person pushing the brand and the best way is a platform that allows that.
