Setting and achieving big goals is a big deal for many people. It’s fairly easy to accomplish the smaller goals, but really big ones that take you up a level in your development, whether personal or business, come with risks and obstacles that we like to tell ourselves we can’t get beyond.
That’s one of the reasons I set myself a huge challenge for the coming month. I’m determined to break through my small goal barrier and really push the limits of what I can accomplish in one month.
There are a couple of other reasons why I’ve set myself a challenge to create 30 opt-in funnels in 30 days.
The first reason is that I’m really slow at getting things done. I’m a procrastinator by nature – everything has to be just so before I’ll push the launch button, and so everything takes way longer than it should. And last month the procrastination bug bit me big time … I forgot to pay a bill, and then didn’t have anything extra coming in to cover it. All because I procrastinated and didn’t launch the product I said I was going to.
Setting this big goal will force me to work faster, and be more focused in order to get everything done in the allotted 30 days. I’m determined to bite the procrastination bug right back!
The second reason I’m pushing myself to get all this work done in 30 days is because I’m having major surgery at the end of April. I need to have systems and funnels in place so that I don’t have to worry so much about my business while I’m recuperating. Which means I probably won’t want to be sitting at my desk for long periods of time during the 6 or so weeks they tell it me will take. And, even more importantly, I want to be relaxed going into the surgery, not stressed out about the bills.
So how am I going to do this?
First off, I’m not going to re-invent the wheel. I’m going to be following this opt-in funnel template to set them up.
Tracking my progress will be essential to the project. I don’t expect I’ll be completing one full funnel every day but rather working on tasks in batches. I plan to have the topics all chosen and the funnels laid out by the end of February, so that on March first I can dive right in and start building. I’ll use my trello account to keep track of tasks and work flow, and report my progress every day in short blog post.
Note: I won’t be doing any step-by-step progress reports because the process isn’t mine and it wouldn’t be fair to give away someone else’s training.
I’ll be making this project my priority for the month as well. And setting deadlines and milestones that must be met. I’m taking part in the Divine Biz Giveaway, which starts on March 5 and so the first funnel will have to be complete by then. I’ll also create a spread in my bullet journal to track my progress and review my goals and motivations each day.
