Whether you're an article ghost writer, an online business owner or any other type of person who works for themselves, you're going to experience a number of challenges along the way.  One of the reasons you want to work for yourself is to get your boss off your back.  You want the freedom to do things your own way on your own schedule.  The downside of this is that you find it hard to get things done without that nagging boss breathing down your neck!


This is especially true for writers; we're all naturally procrastinators by heart.  It goes with that artistic sensibility that writers have.  It's just tough to get on task and stay on task until the job is done. 


Every Successful Person Sets Goals


If you ask any successful person how they achieved their level of success, they'll tell you that it's all about setting goals.  Why is it that you need that goal to get things done?  Goals give you a time frame for the completion of tasks, but they also do much more than that.  These other benefits may be what really get the job done.


You Don't Give Up With A Goal In Mind


One of the reasons goals lead to success is that they keep us from quitting.  When you're meandering along and working when you feel like it with no end in mind, it's easy to give up when things get tough.  When you've got a goal that you're pursuing, it makes it much harder to throw in the towel.


Goals Keep You Focused On The Task At Hand


Are you one of those people with a hundred different things going on RIGHT NOW?  We internet people tend to be like that.  Maybe it's the nature of the internet, which keeps sending you in all different directions at once.  Setting a goal helps you stay on one task until it's done.  It keeps you from wandering off into tangents when you know that you've got something to complete.


How Do You Make Goal Setting Work For You?


It all sounds great, but if you're not a big goal setter, how do you go about doing it?  There are lots of strategies.  One is to set small goals and work in increments.  You can also take a big goal and break it up into "milestones."  Achieving one of these milestones gives you the confidence to make it to the next one.  Whenever you set a goal, you should also have a "plan of attack" that shows step-by-step how to make it happen.  Start small at first, and work your way up to bigger and better things.  It worked for me, and I turned myself from a grade-A slacker to an online business owner in just months.
