Writing a blog post every week is fun. Or not. Today is a funish -not post.
There are a few reasons for that. One = I had a great quote I wanted to use that was very clever that I could wrap into a SMART goal post. I always want to give proper credit, so I used the handy-dandy internet and found there is conflicting info regarding credit for the quote. So I tried another that I thought was an Og quote – same result. Maybe it was originally his, or maybe he borrowed it, but lots of folks are taking credit for it.
Then the next problem is that autocorrect thinks it knows what I want to say. I’ve gotten a lot of great belly laughs over the years reading autocorrect fails of various types -squirrel – just spent 15 minutes off finding a link and laughing. I noticed autocorrect really doesn’t like the word “funish”. It wants it to be finish.
Then I couldn’t figure out the media block, accidentally hit the back button and thought I lost my blog! Fortunately, the magical word press brain autosaved my work. There’s an “auto” I can appreciate!
Focus, Nancy, focus! So – SMART goals. If you don’t know where you’re going, how are you going to get there? There is nothing like adding SMART goals to both confuse members and give them rocket boosters to their dream life!
Regarding the confusion – it seems like we are piling on with DMP revisions, and revisions, and revisions, and PPNs, and movie trailers, and more chores and YES! You read that three times a day, and you read that other thing three times a day, but that one is only once, but it’s OUT LOUD with en-THOOS-iasm – and you have to do your “About Me” blog in ADDITION to your Week 3 blog post. (yeah, autocorrect really doesn’t like en-THOOS-isam, but that’s what I want, so knock it off, autocorrect!)
But about the rocket boosters – if you want to be King or Queen of your universe, how is your subby getting you there unless your goals are SPECIFIC (I own at least $1.1 million in real estate holdings by December 31, 2023) Check! Your goal needs to be MEASURABLE ($1.1 million is measurable). ACHIEVEABLE – sure it is, if you already have $857,000 in holdings and four deals in the works. Is it REASONABLE – not of you’re 98 years old, living with the aid of a ventilator and have no income or prospects of any income. TIMED – December 31, 2023 gives subby a deadline. Check! A great SMART goal right there!
Check your goals, and make sure they’re SMART! (and watch the squirrels – they like to scatter your focus!)
