I hate goal-setting. I still do.
I think I picked up the hatred while wasting my time in countless MLM programs. I had to set a goal to make a million bucks when I didn’t even know how to make my first dollar.
However when I met Alex Mandossian in May 2006, I found a whole new meaning to goal-setting. That day Alex thought me a simple, yet powerful goal-setting technique. Here it is:
- Step 1 – Turn your Yearly income into your Quarterly income.
- Step 2 – Turn your Quarterly income into your Monthly income.
- Step 3 – Turn your Monthly income into your Weekly income.
- Step 4 – Turn your Weekly income into your Daily income.
- Step 5 – Turn your Daily income into your Hourly income.
I know it sounds silly, but think about it. Can you, if you REALLY tried, turn your Yearly income into your Quarterly income?
If you’re making $20 a month on the Internet, you’re making $240 a year. If you really worked hard, with the proper direction, can you make $240 in a Quarter (3 months) instead of a year?
Step 1 will be your most difficult, as it involves a lot of self-belief. But it can be done. When I made a kamikaze move to quit my job and get full time into Internet marketing, I made $729 in my full time job as an account exec, and about $600 a month from the Internet.
I decided to take a pay cut, and try to survive on $600 a month. In other words my income reduced by $729.
I asked myself “What is the worst that can happen? Will I be begging on the streets?”
The answer was NO. With that realization, I found new confidence to do what I thought was right. So I quit my meaningless job.
In May 2006 I turned my Yearly income into my Quarterly income.
In fact, together with my other sources of affiliate & Adsense income I made $3,310 that month and slightly less for the next two months.
So I achieved Step 1. I turned my yearly income ($7,200) into my quarterly income.
So the next step for me is to turn my Quarterly income ($7100) into my Monthly income. I am determined to do it.
If I can make $3173 in four days, I think I’m ready to move to the next level. If I can make $7100 in a month, then I would have achieved Step 2.With the WordPress Adsense System I am confident of even exceeding that target…
I can’t talk about Step 3 – 5 because I haven’t been there yet. According to Alex Mandossian, who did, you’ll look back at the entire process and see things in a new light. Everything will seem easier.
I can understand this… when I was studying in college it seemed impossible to cope with everything. Now college life seems like a holiday.
So if you’re disappointed with what you’re making on the Internet, and have no idea how to make more, follow this simple 5-step goal setting strategy.
It’s simple and motivating at the same time. Plus, it’s RELATIVE. Instead of setting your goals according to what others earn, you’re setting a relative goal against what you’re currently earning.
Forget about what others earn or claim to earn. Challenge yourself to double YOUR income according to the 5-step plan.
Better Your Best – it’s the best (and only) goal-setting strategy I follow.
All the best
