You know you set those blog goals with the best of intentions. But when it comes to actually executing them and taking action to achieve them? It seems as if everything — every single freaking thing — in your life is working together to keep you from following through.
Look, I totally get it. I’ve been there too. Heck, I’ve been there more than a couple of times at this point.
Which is why I spend most of my free time and waking hours wrapping my head around this goal-setting problem that a lot of us bloggers seem to share. And I’ve got it down into 4 steps you can easily follow:
HOW TO SET AND ACHIEVE YOUR BLOG GOALS IN 4 NEAT STEPS
Figure Out Your Why
Now I know this seems a bit woo-woo. But stick with me here for a minute.
Why do you want to achieve the blog goals you set for yourself?
Because it’s what others set for their blog as well? Or maybe because it is a good number to achieve?
I mean, sure, maybe it’ll get you motivated in the first few days. But often times, goals set on such reasons don’t last long. Motivation to achieving your goals need to be able to last longer than the first few days or months – it has to last until you have achieved those goals.
That’s why you need to set meaningful blog goals.
There has to be something bigger than your goals to motivate you. And that’s going to be the foundation of your ‘why’.
Perhaps you’re set on reaching 1000 followers on Instagram. Why? What’s it for? Maybe it’s to generate income directly from the platform. Maybe it’s to direct people to your blog. But having the goal of 1000 followers just because you want to reach that number? It’s good – but not enough to keep you going.
Here’s the way I see it:
The more meaningful the goal, the more motivated you are to achieve it.
So when you’re setting new blog goals to achieve, ask yourself: Why do I want to achieve this goal?
