Goals are essential to achieving success because they keep us focused and motivated. Without goals, we would aimlessly go down the path of life without any direction, ambition, or hope. Goals are not only something we aim to achieve but are also markers that let us know we are doing the right things to get ourselves to places we want to be. Setting goals into blogging is more important to become a successful blogger. Let’s look at some goal setting strategies to help us achieve success into blogging (as well as in our professional life). 3 Effective Tips for Goal Setting of your Blog Know What You Want To Accomplish The most important thing about goal setting for success is to know what you want to accomplish. Some people might think this is obvious, and perhaps it is, but you’d be surprised by the number of people who have no clue as to what they want to do with their life. If you don’t know what it is you want to accomplish, then there is no way you can begin to … [Read more...] about How To Set Goals For Your Blog To Achieve Success

I’ve gotten out of the habit of making up gaming goals for myself over the winter months, mostly because I needed more flexibility around the holidays. Now that things have settled in, I feel like I can organize my thoughts enough to set monthly goals again. There are a few unknowns in doing this — namely that FFXIV Patch 4.25 is dropping mid-month. This will bring with it Eureka, and new Relic content. Also the new Little Ladies’ Day event has glowsticks, which I need on every character I have. I have no idea how that’s going to shift gaming priorities until that comes. For now, I’m just going to plan like that doesn’t exist, though. 😉 FFXIV Goals Level Black Mage (to 70?) ✓ Level Ninja to 50 Level Warrior to 40 Level Dark Knight to 40 ✓ Level Weaver to 70 ✓ Nintendo Switch Goals Make progress in Mario Odyssey ✓ Play Dragon Quest Builders ✓ PC Goals Play more of Sims Jungle … [Read more...] about Gaming Goals – March 2018
I set out some pretty ambitious goals for March, and was surprised that I actually achieved quite a few of them this time around. I did get a little distracted by Starbound and Second Life towards the end of this month, so not everything was complete. Still, did pretty well overall! FFXIV Goals Level Black Mage (to 70?) ✓ Level Ninja to 50 Level Warrior to 40 ✓ Level Dark Knight to 40 ✓ Level Weaver to 70 ✓ I did, indeed, level Black Mage to 70 this month, and then started on leveling my Summoner/Scholar next… mostly because I’m trying to consolidate gear at level 70. I also got Weaver to 70, and have started on upgrading all of the gear to script stuff so that I can look at improving all of my other crafters’ gear. The only goal I didn’t meet was getting Ninja to 50… though I did move that up to 42. So, I’m not too far away! Nintendo Switch Goals Make progress in Mario Odyssey ✓ Play Dragon … [Read more...] about March 2018 Gaming Goals in Review
One of my goals for 2018 was to reach a milestone of having played (over) 50% of the games in my Steam backlog. This month, I’ve been nudging closer by prompting myself to try a new Steam game each week. Last night, for the first time in years, the calculator reported that I’ve played 50% of the Steam games in my library! Given that this number is 245 games, this is no little thing! My other goal this year was to not buy a new game if I wasn’t interested in playing it almost immediately. I’ve pretty much stuck to this. This week, for example, I obtained my Project: Gorgon Steam key from the Kickstarter, so I made sure to install the game and poke around in it a little bit last night. Once I have more time to sit down with it, I’ll be sure to post about my new experiences in P:G. Aside from this, I finished Back to the Future: Episode 3 last week. I had an itch to try a city builder this week (mostly because I’m interested in Surviving … [Read more...] about Steam Challenge: 50% Milestone Goal Met!
This month, I know I’m going to probably remain deep into my explorations of Second Life. Due to this, I’m going to lighten my goal load by just a little. There are still things that I really, really want to get done in FFXIV, however. So here we go! FFXIV Leveling Goals Level Ninja to 50 Level Summoner/Scholar (to 70?) ✓ Pretty straightforward. I just want to get Ninja to 50 finally. I’ll be leveling Summoner/Scholar through Alliance roulettes and Beast Tribes anyhow, but whether it’ll get to 70 is another question! FFXIV Cleanup Quest Goals I’m ashamed to say that I’ve been really slack on a lot of my job quests. Running Beast Tribes and Alliance makes it easy to blast through levels, and from 60-70, you don’t miss out on skills if you’re not doing your quests. So, I’ve simply forgotten about doing so many job quests as I’ve been focused purely on the levels. Please don’t laugh too hard when you see the … [Read more...] about Gaming Goals – April 2018
