How lazy can one person get? If it's me, pretty darn lazy! I am one of those people who is always telling my kids how important it is to practice what you preach but I am also one of the worst at following through with my own advice sometimes!
I have preached often here about how important it is to set goals for yourself. It really doesn't matter if the goals are for your personal life, your working life, etc. We all need goals to tell us what exactly it is we are working towards and help to motivate us.
So why can't I do this? Well I do it. I really do. I was just realizing that I need to do it differently maybe.
One of the goals I shared with you was that I want to have ten websites up by the end of July. So to meet this goal I recently started two new blogs, one is at www.scrapbookingideas.blogspot.com and the other is a secret mystery blog. You will have to find it!
This puts me up to 3 websites, 1 message board and 5 blogs! With about two months left I should have no problem meeting this goal. Now, here is where a new problem comes in. Although all of the blogs are up and running, I don't really feel they are finished. There are a lot of things I would like to do with them to make them more personal and attractive. I want to add some different colors and play around with the fonts a little among other things.
Most everyday I tell myself, I will work on this. Do I? Nope. I keep focusing on just the one goal. Getting everything built and launched.
Now it is great to meet your goals but don't you think it also important to do a job well when you do it? Especially when you consider the number of people who might be looking at your work!
Goals are funny little things when you think about it. Some people can set a goal for themselves and stick to it quite easily. For me, I need to share. I need other people to make me feel guilty and I will feel guilty if I tell you I will do something and then I don't do it.
So, let me tell you my goals so I can stay focused;
Before I can build another website or blog, I must finish what I started.
I will get each blog it's own personality by setting aside the time to go in and change the colors and fonts.
I will learn more about HTML and how it works.
I will spend more time driving traffic to my blogs.
Finally, I will figure out why Technorati hates one of my blogs and get that fixed!
