What? You can really achieve a New Year’s Goal

Kristina God swears you can (but I’m not so sure)

The Challenge:

Kristina God just wrote a bold new article (see below after reading) on goal-setting and I wanted to test her thesis. She states that you can increase your odds of success by 42% by simply doing just one thing — simply writing your goal down! So there are a lot of claims made on Medium as we all know, let’s see if Kristina’s works. I mean, she is a great writer and coach, so what do I have to lose?

Let’s try this out:

My goal from January 3rd, 2022 to January 31st, 2022 is to publish on Medium on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week come hell and high water.

That’s it. Simple. Straight forward.

I’ve published 21 articles in two months of writing, so this would increase my output almost two-fold. And the Medium algorithm will totally love and hug me and I will receive the Writer of the Year award and I will win a free trip to Hawaii, and my readers will all come and visit me, and… Oops, I may be digressing.

How will I know that I accomplished my goal?

I will check my publication dates on Medium on February 1st, 2022, and report back the results to my readers and share them with Kristina.

See you in 30 days. Hopeful but…

So I am cautiously hopeful. (Frankly, I think I can increase my odds by the remaining 58% if I just changed my name to God — but that is a consideration for another time!)

It will be great if I get a lot of readers and earnings from this ambitious experiment. But that is not my focus — for now.

Join the Fun

Let me know if you want to join me by posting your goal or goals in the comments. And remember — Keep Them Simple (The K.I.S.S Rule)

We’ll all send our results to Kristina together…

— Happy Day 3, 2022! Let’s all change the status quo —
