No matter how productive you are, or how organized, or how talented, you aren’t gonna reach your dreams if you don’t know what they are.

How to Create Daily Goals
Once you know where you want your biz to be, then you gotta figure out how to get there.
Break down your goals into time-frames to realistically made progress on your biz.
Sounds easy, right? The hard part, is pushing all other things and ideas back until you have achieved your daily goals.
Imagine a great new idea pops into your head, or you see someone else in your niche doing something super cool. Guess what, unless it is directly in line with your dream biz, you gotta put it on the back burner.
Remember – its so easy to jump from new fad to new fad, never really following through. But that isn’t gonna get you to your dream. Here’s what will.
3 Years from now
Look at your long-term biz goals. What does your biz need to look like in 3 years from today to be on track?
1 Year from now
What about 1 year from today? How does your biz need to look in order to hit your 3-year biz goal?
Now that you have your 1-year biz goal. It’s time to break that up into quarters.
Generally I would say to stick with 3 main goals per quarter. Don’t overwhelm yourself with too many goals than achievable, you will either feel like you failed or you will have done everything with half effort.
Keep your goals few & be specific! Really try to push yourself with these goals.
The standard biz quarters are January – March, April – June, July – September, October – December. Below I will list a few things related to each quarter if you aren’t too familiar with planning out your biz in this way. No need to stick to what I say or recommend though, you know your biz best ?
In the first
Know what platforms you need to be on for social media, products, and marketing. Start to gain knowledge about these platforms and testing them out. Or if you’ve already got a platform locked down, create a fresh new content plan testing out brand new things. Make this the quarter to focus, take risks, &
If you’re using information marketing, which is just a fancy word for blogging to generate traffic to your product, start creating your content now.
Work on any of the first steps you need to get to your 1-year goal here. Really try to layout a strong foundation, I know sometimes it’s tempting to do what’s easy, but you never know where your biz will gain an audience if you just stick to what’s comfortable.

This quarter is mostly about focusing 90 days of pushing toward your goals hard.
This is generally when the summer slump hits, or maybe your biz is one that thrives in the summer with everyone’s vacation schedule.
This is the best time to start planning for the holidays!
This is the start of the holiday season. If you didn’t plan for it in Q3, then you will be scrambling now. Try to focus on getting your customers where they need to be. Whether that’s to purchase your product as a gift, click affiliate links to get a sweet
Now that you’ve got your quarterly goals, it’s time to break them down into the three months of the quarter.
Create monthly goals for all three of your quarterly goals so that you are making consistent progress. Something like the following
|Quarterly Goal 1
|Quarterly Goal 2
|Quarterly Goal 3
Ya’ guessed it, you’re gonna do the same thing with each monthly goal.
|Monthly Goal 1
|Monthly Goal 2
|Monthly Goal 3
Yep, ya’ already know the drill. Same thing, smaller scale. This time, you’re breaking from the rule of 3. In all honesty, you can totally try out doing three goals a day, but I stick to just 2. It gives me time to dive deep and it works with my schedule of only working while my daughter sleeps.
I also personally practice having just two goals for the entire weekend as I see the weekend as family time, but that’s just a work boundary I have created with my family. If weekends are
|Weekly Goal 1
|Weekly Goal 2
|Weekly Goal 3
Making the Most of Your Day
Alright, I know we got a bit sidetracked with all that detail, but
Here’s a list of what you gotta do on the daily:
- Know your daily 2 goals
- Know your time blocks for work (check your reminders if you have something going on with your littles, an appointment, outing, etc.)
- Brain dump anything that’s nagging at you or pulling your attention
- Avoid multitasking at all costs, focus on your daily 2 until they are done.
- Keep your desk clutter-free & distraction free. Clear your desk before going to bed so you can start fresh in the morning.
- Stick to your work & family boundaries.
