Setting the bar higher

 Regular readers of my blog will know that I do like to set myself 

goals and challenges.

 I may not always achieve these goals, some fall by the wayside, 

but it doesn't deter me from setting more and trying again.

As Thomas Edison said,

So once again I have reset and re-evaluated my goals.

I have worked out quite a comprehensive plan of attack for the 

growth of my blogs throughout the rest of the year. It's clearer than 

any plan I've made before.

I've tried to be as specific as possible - with things broken down 

into 6 monthly, 3 monthly, 1 monthly and weekly goals and tasks. 

Then each week I will work out a timetable and schedule in all my 

tasks to make sure I achieve each of my weekly goals.

In working out my goals this time - this quote I found recently 

really did make me think hard about what I'm doing..

"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value."

 –Albert Einstein

In writing this very detailed plan of action, I'm challenging myself more than I've done before with my blogs.  Each time I've drawn up a plan, it's been much shorter - or not so focused; but equally each time I've done this I've learnt something.

In the past when I've set my goals and plans - I've published them here - to help keep me accountable.
This time I'm not going to do that.  
As I work through my plans and achieve each small goal, I will share and post what I do and learn, but keep the bigger picture to myself for now.

By breaking my tasks down into monthly - then weekly - then daily, the idea is to keep up my motivation - small tasks to achieve regularly so I can see constant learning and progress.

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither

 does bathing.  That’s why we recommend it daily.

–Zig Ziglar

This plan I've worked out - draws on what I've learned and done over the past few years. It draws together all aspects of what I'm doing and enjoy doing - my different blogs, interests and skills.

Time to raise that bar higher than I've done before - and believe that I will reach it. 
Time to really push myself way out of my comfort zone!

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve 

always gotten. –Tony Robbins
