The year 2014 is going to be an exciting for me mainly because I have set a number of goals for myself and for my Internet business. The past year 2013 have been quite challenging and I am looking forward to a truly fruitful 2014. I believe that the only way to reach one’s goals is to use the SMART method. Goals have to be:
A — Achievable
R — Relevant
For my 2014 Goal I have decided to use this method to make sure that I actually achieve each one of them. These are my goals and how I am going to achieve them:
Personal Development Goal
1. One business book & 1 Magazine per month: I enjoy writing and I enjoy sharing what I know about the joys of running your own business. I was an employee for a good number of years and although I did learn a lot during those years, the rewards of having your own business is extremely fulfilling.
This is why I plan to work on one business book per month that covers different business topics aimed at helping others become the entrepreneurs that they have always wanted to become.
