Lately, I have so many ideas going that it is hard to figure out which one to focus on. The kids are still home for the summer (yay!) so I have to really choose to use my time while they are asleep wisely…
When I thought about my plans & ideas…
I felt like this:
So I needed a goal. I wrote everything out that I wanted to do (Like a HUGE list).
Then I went back and made a chart (think of what you did in elementary school – mind maps). I made a mind map for each of my things. (Some people swear by mindmeister.com – I’ve never tried them)
Then I made got a plain old sheet of notebook paper & seven different colored markers. I picked my top 7 goals and I wrote them at the bottom of the page and separated them with a thick black line. I had 7 columns.
I wrote the way that I was going to get there at the top.
Goal—>>> Sell my new printable organizing binder. I wanted to think of a good way to market it because it was brand new & took months to go from idea to product. Now it needed to sell itself… with a little help.
Solution –>>> Do a declutter course & have the printable organizer for sale at the end of it.
Problem–>> what about those not in the declutter course?
Solution –>> take pictures & add it to the bottom of other posts for people to purchase.
So my paper now says:
Top: TAKE IMAGES/ADD TO POSTS/ADD TO COURSE
Bottom: Printable Organizing Binder
That is column one.
I did this 6 more times for 6 more products.
It takes a few hours (or days) to really get you where you need to be, but you will feel so much better getting all of your ducks in a row & having a plan to get them there.
Now… I feel like this:
Whatever your blogging goals are, take a piece of paper RIGHT NOW and write them down.
Then (today, tomorrow, next week) start going through them, one by one, and figure out how you will get there.
