What's your goal for 2011 on ActiveRain?

Real Estate Agent with LAER Realty Partners

(I hope this is NOT a weird idea - of having goals for ActiveRain!)

May be, I am little late in planning my goals for 2011...the year has already started!

So here I am with about 131,000+ points on ActiveRain. I was at little over 125,000 points - exactly where I wanted to be by the end of the year 2010. And I was ranked 21 in Massachusettes - wanted to be in top 20 - nonetheless, have achieved that goal in few more days.

So, what are my goals for 2011 - as far as ActiveRain is concerned?

Called Shots: 200 (It's been difficult, off-late, not getting any....)


Most Important: Total Points: 400,000+ (Can I do it? Mathematically, Yes! Practically? It depends...how much steam is left as I go through the process of consistent blogging on AR....)

Little tall order - but I think, with your support and my commitment, I should reach these numbers.

As far as ranking is concerned, the competition gets tougher as I climb up. It's not so easy to pass someone who is consistently blogging. So, I hope I reach my goal by the end of 2011.

Wish you all a great success in 2011 - in your business and here, at AR, too!

Hi Praful, yes I think you can do this!  My own AR goals are to improve my writing and content.

Thanks, Ann, Adell, Dan for stopping by.

It is possible, mathematically. Once can add 4,950 points each week - no comments from others accounted for. For 52 weeks, that makes about 260,000 - adding it to my current total of 131,000 points, I will be off by only 9,000 points. And since I participate in many contests, I should be able to add 9,000 points during the year.

I cannot control the rank part - there will be tough competition. I hope to achieve this goal.

Thanks, once again

It's never too late to plan goals. They say you should make a goal that both excites you and scares you at the same time! Yours sounds like a plan.

My goal is to be up to #5 in Louisville on AR by the end of the year (I'm currently #10). Maybe that's not lofty enough. =)

Hello Praful~ I had goals for year end 2010, so why shouldn't I have goals for 2011.  For right now I'm going to conservative and just say that I want to hit 200k, by year end.  There's a good chance I could hit 300k.  Good luck with your goals!

@Lynda, I am sure you'll reach #5 before 2011. And, looking back, yes, I do have scary goals..lol

@Donna, you surely will hit 300K - knowing that you have been so consistent. (And just to add - there was one more contest today.....check in ActiveRain Contest group, I don't recollect what it is for...)

@Margaret, thanks for keeping me on track - I really appreciate.

I am yet to start my series on 'India Diary' and a few more tech posts - you'd know why, if you read my 'Pay It Forward' posts.

Praful, you are well on your way and congratulations for being such a super achiever here in the Rain in the last year! I am finally in the top 15 in Florida, which is no easy task! Florida has some of the most points-worthy members! lol

Of course, having a goal is a good thing.

Let me ask you - what is your business goal?
