When I set this goal for myself, I taped a dollar bill to my computer monitor. From then on, whenever I sat down to write I would see the dollar bill.
The purpose of hanging the bill was so that it would remind me of my goal for the website: to create value. It reminded me to write things worth reading, and to steer clear of writing things that would cause someone to think “Who cares?”
You might be thinking “A dollar a day? That’s not even minimum wage, so why not just get a job?”
Although it’s true that it’s not much money, it’s something. All goals need to start somewhere. My goal for this website is that it earns an average of $10 a day by August of ’07. Before it can earn $10 a day, it must earn $9 a day. Before it can earn $9 a day, it must earn $8, and so on.
When you leave an idea as just an idea, it will earn you nothing. I have transformed my idea into a website that earns passive income, and it’s earning something.
In the first month, this site’s income streams have earned me $42 — an average of $1.40 for each day of April ’07. I’d like to offer a special thanks to both Danielle Gibbings and John King, who made donations this month. Your generosity made achieving this month’s goal possible, so I really appreciate your encouragement and support.
I’ve started the month of May off by taping a second dollar bill to my monitor. Although this method might seem corny or pathetic, it’s helping me remember that in order to reach my goals, I must earn it every day.
