If you are not usually a goal-oriented person, you’re missing out on a useful tool for helping your business succeed. You should break down your goals first by year, then by quarter.
An example of a short-range goal could be to list 200 items per month or 800 per quarter. In terms of income, a medium-range goal could be to net $8000 during the next quarter for a long-range net of $32,000 net at end of 4 quarters. Always up your goals for the next year in order to adjust your business so that your income goes up each year.
Another good thing about this system is that your failures can be short lived; you can get to work on the next quarter and make it successful. Depending on your life situation, you may have to re-work your goals. You never know what might happen to thwart your vision. Don’t fret. Just adjust the timelines and/or the income.
