A simple guide to quick goal setting

Create a quick and simple method for setting a goal, milestones, and end markers for any goal.

 Answer these questions:

  1. What am I devoting significant time and/to effort to?
  2. What do I ultimately want to get out of this goal?
  3. Where do I want to be with this goal in 12 months?
  4. What will I use to get there?
  5. What is my next step?
  6. What can I do to make that next step inevitable?
  7. What must happen or not happen for me to give up on this goal, or radically change how I approach it?
Example:

What am I devoting significant time and/or effort to?

Copywriting

What do I ultimately want to get out of this goal?

The ability to sell

The ability to make $10,000 in 2 months by freelancing or using this skill

Where do I want to be with this goal in 12 months?

I want to have a steady stream of copywriting clients I work with.

I want to be making at least $3000 every month by freelancing this skill, and I want to be charging at least $60/hour and making my clients at least 4x what I charge from them.

What will I use to get there?

Earn1K, selling books (ogilvy on advertising, scientific advertising, other advertising books), practice on other’s businesses (for free and paid)

What is my next step to get there?

Learn how to sell myself using Earn1K, learn how to sell via Scientific Advertising, try and get clients who want to work with me.

What must happen or not happen for me to give up on this goal, or radically change how I approach it?

If I’m not making $1000/month by July 2013, I know something is very wrong. I will probably stop and get a full time job in sales (or something else) to learn this skill from people who know it.
