I am happy to say that my 81st post will add up to a total of over 10,000 words on my blog (all of my posts combined). Milestones such as this cannot be over looked. Every so often, it is necessary to take a small break from your business and look at what you have accomplished. The main goal for your business is to be better than you left off. My Squidoo earnings get larger and larger. I do take some breaks from Squidoo to take a look at what I have accomplished, I also find ways that I can make myself even better. That means getting more sales on some of my other Squidoo lenses and promoting them even more. I will not stop at 10,000 words, but instead I will keep on going to 20,000 words and so on which will eventually get me to over 100,000 words on this blog. All of my blogs and Squidoo lenses combined most likely have over 100,000 words, and I am happy to continue writing to everyone.
Just a year ago, I wouldn’t be happy if my teacher assigned me a 250 word essay. Now I am writing thousands of words online which will soon reach millions of words. I would have never thought a year later I would be writing over 250 words every single night. The work was definitely hard, but when I got the results (such as nice comments, sales, etc.), I found a new appreciation for writing. I have been doing it ever since whenever I am creating a new Squidoo lens, updating an old one, creating a blog post (and then publishing it), making a bio, or tweeting out messages.
When I look at a leader, I like it when the leader does what he believes. In this blog post, I took a break from my business and saw what I have accomplished so far. Now that I can see what I have accomplished, I can look to go even farther and take my business to the next level. Is it necessary to look back at your milestones? Yes it is! A business that does not look back at its past success will feel as if it accomplished nothing even if that same business has had a positive impact on many people’s lives.
I look at my 10,000 word milestone and say, “It’s good, I’m happy, and I’m going to do even bigger things!”
