Goal setting and achievement come in a variety of formats. Some people may simply do it all in their head while others post it on a social networking site. There are print diaries that you can purchase that house your goals and discuss how you overcome obstacles and achieve them.
But there’s a different way you can organize and present these thoughts and actions steps. Blogging is a form of goal setting that allows you to pair the privacy of a diary with the public accountability of a social networking site.
On a blog, because it’s digital, you can choose to keep certain things private and out of the view from the public. Or, you can display it for all to see so that others around the world can go on your journey with you, provide feedback, and sometimes offer guidance that can help you.
You can outline each one of your goals on your digital blog – those related to your financial success, your health, relationships, and more. Then as you go through each day, every week, months and years, you can describe your state of mind as you address each obstacle and discuss how you overcame it to achieve each milestone of your overall goal.
The key to successfully achieving your goals using a blog rests in your ability to be consistent with the task and become proficient in how you relay the information. You’ll want to blog daily or at least a few times a week so that there is a viable accountability track record for yourself and others to look back on.
This way, if you ever struggle with a similar or related situation, you can easily look back on previous entries to see how you handled it. Your audience will appreciate the sharing of this information so that they can apply it to their own journey and see faster results than if they had to wade through the problem on their own without anyone guiding the way for them.
If you decide to embark on a digital blog journey to systematically track your progress with goalsetting, then make sure you embrace a continual education mindset when it comes to the process of blogging.
There are always new things to learn, new strategies to test out, and new ideas to implement in an effort to get your message out and help yourself while helping others. Technology changes quickly, and you have to stay abreast of how to manage your blog so that it doesn’t get buried in search engines.
