While I was chatting with several Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) subscribers yesterday, we discussed goals, and the difficulty of setting goals when you’re just starting out in Web writing:
* “I want to make enough money to quit my day job, maybe by writing ebooks. Or I might decide to create more blogs. What goals will I set?”
* “I want to establish an authority blog, but I need some money fast. Can I set $500 a week as a goal to start with?”
* “I’ve just got my first three clients from one of the out-sourcing sites. It’s great to have money coming in. But I’m not sure how many clients I can handle until I write full time. Do I set writing full time as a goal?”
Most of us are out of practice with setting goals. I’ve got a very simple method I use; it’s called the “three wishes” method, and I covered it on my law of attraction blog.
Wishing is great fun, and here’s the big benefit — it eliminates goal setting entirely. Just keep your mind on what you want; visualize night and morning, and you’re all set.
Let me know how this method works for you — you should see results immediately. You’ll feel both more confident and more relaxed, and you’ll definitely have more fun with your writing.
