As I sat down to drink my morning coffee and try to figure out what I wanted or needed to do today I realized that I have never put my goals down on paper so to say.
Ever morning I make a list of things that need to be accomplished, and I think about the things that I would really like to do and where I am headed but I have never written them down. From what I have seen and read over the years that is a vital step in actually achieveing your goals.
I have said things like:
- I want to learn how to fly
- I want to buy an RV and travel.
- I want to generate an online income that would allow me to have my dreams.
But I have never set forth any goals to reach those dreams. And what are dreams really ? I once read that goals are dreams on a timeline. We need to establish specific goals with specific timelines if we expect to achieve them.
Recently I was listening to Spencer Haws of www.nichepursuits.com as he discussed some goals with an apprentice that he was training. And he set some very specific goals for Perrin. And one of them was to establish a niche website that was earning at least $500 per month within six months.
And the end of the project, six month period, the niche website was making over $2,000 a month. I thought to myself if I can only have three of those sites, that would be $6,000 per month. That is quite a nice little sum to be earning every month in this economy.
But it was not without work, and if I remember right Perrin was still working a full time job when he took on this project. It was all done in the evenings and weekends.
Seeing how I am currently unemployed I see no reason why I can’t accomplish the same goals and more. Therefore I am setting a goal for myself to create at least one niche website and have it earning at least $500 per month but the end of 2014.
I already have one nich website and have had it for a long time but have really never put much work into it. The Affilaite Hound (www.theaffiliatehound.com) but it is only making around $5.00 per month in adsense income. So I am setting another goal to increase the income to that site as well to $500 per month by the end of the month
