I don’t know how many of you are paying attention to the calendar, but January has all but come and gone. There are only a few days left in the first month of the year, and it’s almost time to order flowers for St. Valentine’s Day. Guys, it’s very important that you don’t forget the flowers. My wife is Superwoman, so she gets the giant flowers every year.
Anyway, earlier this month most of us were all fired up about our goals for the year. A year seems so long, especially when you’re trying to set a goal. Because of that, many people recommend that you break your goals into monthly sub-goals. In fact, I try to do that. So my question for you is, did you have a goal for January and will you meet it?
As it happens, I set two kinds of Internet Marketing goals for January. One set of goals is income related, and one set of goals is task related. To be honest with you, I hit the income goal completely by accident and totally missed the task related goal. This is basically a horrible performance on my part. It’s “seat of the pants” performance, and that is not a good thing.
All is not lost, however. There are still a few days left in January for me to make some serious progress on my task related goals that will no doubt spill into February. From my point of view, attaining my Internet marketing goals is very similar to sailing a ship across the ocean in stormy weather using only a compass. The winds really blow you around, but that’s okay as long as you stay pointed in the right direction and constantly move toward your destination.
So, tell me about your progress against your big dreams for 2009. I’d love to hear how things are going. Leave me a comment, and let’s hold each other accountable.
Have a great day!
