Today’s post is all about setting goals and sticking to them, to ensure they become a habit.
I have been guilty of letting my blog posting schedule slip badly, and I am conscious that any new traffic coming to my blog will see that there has been no updates for a while, and will move on to the next one.
I really need to get better at writing and scheduling my blog posts, and other areas of my business need a shake up too.
It is often said that if you force your self to perform a new task every day for 30 days, it becomes a habit, and then it becomes second nature.
Think of starting a new regime of healthy eating, or perhaps giving up smoking – if you can get over the hardest part (the first 5 or 6 days) then keep focussed and push through the mental barriers and peer pressure and make it to 30 days. Then this imprint of new behaviour will take hold, and you will have a much better chance of succeeding.
Imagine where your business would be in 30 days if you committed to take action from today, and everyday on an important aspect of your business!
Example 2 – Imagine creating one short video or piece of written content on a subject in your niche, everyday.
At the end of 30 days, you would have more than enough content to release a brand new training product, or if you released the content to youtube or guest blogs or article sites, you would have 30 fresh lead magnets working for you and linking back to your money sites.
Its simple when broken down like this, but most people do not take action.
