  1. My goal is to make a living off of blogging. I don’t have to make 100,000 a month or anything but just enough to replace my current income would be great.

  2. Great tips. I love to write things down and break down larger tasks. One of my goals for the new year is to create a bigger picture sort of goal list and then break that into smaller sections for the to-do list!

  3. I soooo love making (and nailing) goals! You're absolutly right about habits. They're not easy to form, but are rewarding in the long run. My personal win - I've managed to become a morning person (and I was a true night owl before). This was such a game-changer for my productivity!

  4. Great ideas! I'm so glad to finally be on track with goal setting!

  10. Great post here. I love this post. Goals must be simple, smart and easier. When its too complex and complicated it will look unachievable. I achieved a few goals i set this year. Its because i made it simplier and look for ways to achieve it.

  14. This is perfect to read right now as I'm really spending time this year organizing and planning out my 2018 because I have some major goals and I'm sick of not doing the things I want for several of the reasons you list -- esp procrastination and no specific game plan!

    I LOVE your suggestion of using a separate planner. I wasn't planning on doing that but now you have me thinking that might be a good idea!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just need this, i's time to review the year and get more organized.. I'll definitely start using a planner

    ReplyDelete
  16. I agree. I have so many irons in the fire, then get frustrated when I can't finish them all. I reduced my hours so I can spend more time building my business for 2018. My mini goals is to master Tailwind and Pinterest so I can grow my business. I'm giving myself 90 days to do it. Next quarter is enroll in course. I want to have more than one income stream so I'm not depending on a "job" to meet all my needs. If I make the money I do now as full time employee I'll be satisfied, by the big goal is to make 6 figures within 3 years. Thank you for posting this. It just reaffirms what I know I need to do.

  17. Those planners are really cute! I think when it comes to setting goals I can be a bit over-ambitious sometimes and that's my downfall. I need to set smaller realistic goals!

  30. I am finally understanding the idea of using 2 planners. This year I have a daily digital calendar and just ordered a goal setting planner last week. I can see the value in having both, like you’ve discussed. Thanks for reminding that they both are equally important.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is all great information! I am so bad about having too many projects at once which sets me up to not reach my goals because I have way too many of them. Ive found that organizing better and making lists helps me to slow down and appreciate smaller goals.

  33. I have three planners and trying to use just one. One planner is my daily do, another is my post schedule and the other is my year/income

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have to say that I love your posts, they always remind me that I need to stay on top of being organized! I have a planner for bills/finances and I am working on putting together one for my blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have set myself man goals which are mainly concerned with how I run my business and where I'm going to start trading in 2018, I've put it out there into the universe so I know it will happen. I've even mad myself a wall planner by the door so i see it every time as book forms didn't work too well for me. My main goal next needs to reduce my social media time! Still working on that one with little success!

    ReplyDelete
  36. These are all really awesome tips. I have like four planners, I use one for personal goals, one for manifestation, one for daily gravitate and the other one is to have everything down and organized. I like to set daily goals, monthly ones also and then bigger ones for the year.

  44. My goals are what I like to call baby steps. Instead of looking at the ultimate goal I take baby steps towards it. I write down tasks for the day ensuring I complete every one of them. I am in the process of publishing my debut novel, the contract has been signed with the publisher, we are now editing. getting to this stage took many baby steps.

  45. My bad habit is taking on more work than I can actually accomplish. This comes from years of working outside the home with minimal distractions. Now that I am no longer working outside of the home and have two young boys to care for I have to learn to take on less work. In time I hope to settle into a better routine and schedule in order to make some extra income from blogging.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am definitely trying to hit snooze less this year, and so I can get in the habit of getting to work earlier. I can get so much more done that way!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have to say that all these are really well thought out and helpful. Perfect read for starting s new year and making sure to leave it feeling accomplished.

  48. I love your simple steps to goal achievement. Getting rid of bad habits should probably be the first goal, and in reading your short list, I recognized that I do a couple of them, especially snooze the alarm!
    My most immediate goal is to attend the Epiphany celebration tomorrow and write a blog post about it.
