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,
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."
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."
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.
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
