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!
