September Goals for Persona Paper

In mid-August, I admitted that I need some sort of tangible goal to keep focused.

I had just cashed out for the first time on Persona Paper, which took me 14 months since I initially signed up. However, it was roughly the last six months since I decided to get serious and to make Persona Paper my home.

On August 16th, the bank indicated 17% toward my next $20 goal, and targeting my second payout for December 20th. Not content to see zero in the bank, I set the same 15K coin goal. When cashing out, I find it does not feel as if I am starting from scratch. It is a strategy that keeps me motivated.

During that second half of the month, the percentage toward the payout goal doubled to 34%, averaging an increase of 1.33% each day.

Looking forward, I will work to continue striving for consistency in September. My benchmark for doing so is, as follows:

  • 100 Coins daily for 3000 monthly coins
  • 3 Articles daily for 90 monthly
  • "Stretch" goals
    • 5000 Coins added for month
    • 100 Articles for month
  • Read and comment on no fewer than 10 new posts
  • Stay positive, continue to encourage others, and celebrate the small victories

Here is to a successful September for us all!

What are your goals for the month?

Simply not to become discouraged at the slow earnings, particularly given that I cannot post 10 - 15 pieces a day or even respond to that many by leaving a comment.

I don't think I'm going to set any goals for this website. I'm working on my blog and want to start another one.

Those sound like easy goals to reach for you. I am guessing that you will go over 5000 goal

I don't set a goal. Just reading and commenting here to kill boredom. emoticon :winking:

This is really inspiring. I also want to set goals and be serious enough to reach them.

I just love people who set goals emoticon :smile: that's the way I get through life. I'm not sure about my goals here. Real life is excitingly busy right now.

Good luck with your September goals. With persistence I'm certain you will accomplish them.

I wish you the best of luck with your goals. I would love to create goals for my writing but when I have in the past it always gets blown out of the water before the day is over.

Shellyann36 wrote on September 2, 2015, 9:45 AM

Good luck with your goals. You and lexiconlover have inspired me to set my own goals. Mine are much smaller than yours but I am half way through my goal for the day.

CoralLevang wrote on September 2, 2015, 1:47 PM

morilla Even those that do post this's slow earnings.

Which is why I look solely at coins...and make a game out of it for myself.

rescuegal What type of blog do you have, and what is the other?

CoralLevang wrote on September 2, 2015, 1:49 PM

wolfgirl569 Only easy if I show up and keep up. emoticon :winking:

So, that is a goal AdGoggleKo ...
Goal: To kill boredom
How: By reading and commenting at PP
Actions Taken: I read and commented on "x" number/for "x" amount of time.
Result: I was less bored
OR... Reading articles on setting goals bores the hell out of me.
New Goal: To Kill Boredom
How: By finding cool articles on travel destinations
Actions: Find articles by & Rufuszen or valmnz or others who write those things from time-to-time

See? emoticon :winking: It's all goal-setting. emoticon :tongue:

CoralLevang wrote on September 2, 2015, 1:59 PM

cheri Thank you. Remember....goals can be very simple.
i.e. Write 2 articles today, and read and comment on 5 other people's articles (1 each).

Start small. You will be successful. Then you get to change goals, as YOU deem necessary.

CoralLevang wrote on September 2, 2015, 2:01 PM

valmnz I can wander aimlessly, so I need to do something to keep me on track. Life always will get in the way, but I am realizing that I am not a failure if I don't reach something for which I strive. Then it's a choice to change the goal to make it more manageable given what has cropped up.

Learning how to do this, instead of the all or nothing mentality, was important for me.

CoralLevang wrote on September 2, 2015, 2:01 PM

Thanks, Paulie

Thank you, Shellyann36 . You CAN create goals for writing. Past does not determine future.
With your statement at the end, what it seems to me (now, you are seeing me in my "life coach" mode), is that you are either 1.) too hard on yourself where getting to make choices throughout the day is concerned, or 2.) setting goals that may be impossible for you to meet based on your daily obligations (SuperMom mode?) or 3.) Any number of other explanations.

Perhaps you can try this:

Today, I am going to set aside three blocks of time, 20 to 30 minutes each. I will call it "Me" Time, where I will make myself a cup of tea, set a timer, and have the alone time on PP. My morning time, I will spend my 15 minutes to write a "Good morning" article about my plans for the day. My noon block of time I will read five articles and make a comment on each one. My evening time, I will write a "Good night" article, recapping something good, fun, challenging, interesting, etc., that I want to tell everyone. I will do this for five days of seven this week, and record in a journal, whether I was able to do so, what the challenges were, etc., etc.. On (set the date), I will look over the results to see what worked and what did not, and alter this goal as necessary, to help me be successful/more successful.

Baby steps. You have to figure out how you work, and what works for you, first. emoticon :smile:

GREAT! (I did not read this until after I wrote my message. *points upward*). Remember, it's not a contest with anyone else. This is all about you. emoticon :smile:

lol noticed you were MIA and now have to play catch up

rescuegal wrote on September 2, 2015, 2:38 PM

I write about websites where you can make money and give information about blogging. All of my info is coming from the experts. I'm in the thinking stage for another blog. It might be on all the arts, i.e. cooking, painting, drawing, fiber arts, sewing, etc. In other words, all my passions. My current blog is call earnonlineleads.

cheri wrote on September 2, 2015, 10:16 PM

I have started doing this and thanks for the support.

PriscillaKing wrote on September 13, 2015, 6:34 PM

My goals--At least $10 per day in the content mine, two Blogjob posts, at least sort each day's e-mail into folders, maintain some presence on my Blogspot in between posting correspondents' material, and one "real" PP and one "real" LJ post per month.

I'm still working for about $1/hour but I just paid my property taxes anyway.

CoralLevang wrote on September 13, 2015, 7:04 PM

What is "Blogjob"? I have to admit that reading without my glasses, I thought it said something else.
