September Goals - Did you write them down?

I stumbled upon a great blog post by Rebecca Thorman on Modite where she challenges us to join the meet up group, write our September goals and then cross them off upon successful completion. Studies show that when you write your goals and have an accountability partner the odds are that you will be much more successful in completing the goals.

Well, I have two lists, one is all the things I could ever think of that needs to be done and the other is the reality list. To spare myself total public humiliation :-) I will post the reality goal list...I wrote a song...want to it goes!

September 2009 goals:

1. Setup a mailchimp account to manage all the mailing list
2. Work with the BAM!apps group to re-launch the website
3. Set up a tweetdeck account to manage the tweets
4. Blog at least twice a week
5. Give at least 20 hugs per day
6. Read a word of inspiration daily
7. Gain 20 blog followers
8. Finish the micromentor signup
9. Attend at least one networking group meeting (any recommendations for Northern California?)
10. Harvest the garden
11. Cross off 10 goals at the end of the month... lol

That's it for about you? Are you joining the challenge? If so, click here to read Rebecca's post. What are your September goals?


  1. Mailchimp and are two newsletter services that are ridiculously easy to use (I've used madmimi before and rather liked it a lot).

    As for the networking meetup in NorCal, there are lots of meetups I'm sure you can find. My recommendations for scouting places are: and Facebook (you'd be surprised).

  2. I think those goals are good one and ones that you can handle. I look forward to seeing them crossed off at the end of the month!

  3. Aw! Give at least 20 hugs a day? That will definitely up your spirits; the original wall post. Best of luck on your goals! --Sapana

  4. Love the 20 hugs a day! And TweetDeck will be one of the quickest and easiest ones. =)

  5. Go ahead and tell us your longer term goals (and how the short-term goals get you closer! That way we can help you.

  6. Great goals! I particularly like the 20 hugs/day! Ha ha Good luck!!
