How To Go About Killing It
Yesterday my accountability partner checked up on me with goal progression. I responded to him with a long answer but in short my progress thus far can be summed up in a few words: I am killing it! And let me tell you, it feels incredible! So what got me into this state of sheer euphoria you may ask? Well I’ll tell you.
Looking at my life right now I can boil it down to three simple things that are in my life right now. I am actively taking advantage of these things. And in return they are helping me to propel forward with my life and my work.
Setting Weekly Goals
If you’ve been a reader of my more recent work, I really don’t shut up about my weekly goals. But seriously, they are a life saver and I can’t not shut up about them! Considering the nature of my work, my goals change a lot. Or I realize things but I’d rather not go back on my goals.
I found myself in those situations before when I was setting monthly goals. There were instances where I didn’t want to change my goals halfway through the month. Instead, I kept them and didn’t do anything with them.
But with weekly goals I’m able to adjust. They’re manageable at this time especially since my work doesn’t take up a lot of time. I’m a very small business so setting smaller goals makes sense for me.
This doesn’t mean I’m setting a lower bar. The goals I’m doing take me a week to complete, however by setting smaller targets you are more focused on them. There is less room for goofing around.
Growing A Network
Another thing that I’ve been taking advantage and using it even more is the Tribe Builder’s Network. I’ve talked about in the past about building a community. Since then I’ve been using that energy to be reaching out to other people. To making connections and even offering to guest post on peoples blogs.
I’m doing this because I want to be building relationships with others and I know relationships can be formed stronger when you do things for others. It was how I built a strong friendship and professional relationship with my accountability partner. By doing favours for one another we’re able to grow.
Especially in cases with writing since it’s an expressive medium you learn about the person too.
But overall, the fact I’m spending time with other people is good. These people are taking action which is making me motivated to take action. To go out and be killing it!
And the last big thing is being thankful for all of it. When we express gratitude it puts things into perspective of where we are. Furthermore it’s a reminder of where we came from and what sort of progress we made.
At the beginning of the year, I had some lofty goals for myself. I was fixated on dedicating my time to my blog and my youtube channel as per usual. But over the months my channel ran into some bumps. I made some discoveries. And ultimately I realized I need to stick to writing more.
Putting my writing in the forefront and my channel basically on the back-burner I believe was a good move. By no means am I ignoring it, but I’m not spending a lot of time on my channel. Not as much as I usually do. It’s only until recently where I want to build it back up again. I have clearer sights.
And all of that is due to the progress I’ve been making in my writing. For that, I am grateful for.
