Setting goals and trying to met them should be apart of your daily business.

Goals written are dreams achieved:  There is something to writing down your goals.  When you use a pen or pencil, you can touch and smell it and you are turning a thought into a physical object.

Goal writing tips:

1. Stay positive.  The more positive your goals are the better.   Work for what you want to acheive in your Etsy shop, not for what you want to leave behind.   For example ” I didn’t make enough sales last month, I have to improve my sale” .  How about “This month will be my best sales month to date”.  Don’t remind yourself about what you didn’t accomplish.  Stay positive!

2.  Detail, Details Details.  When writing your goals for your Etsy shop use as much detail as you can.  “I will sell 250 items in the month of December.”  “This holiday season I will design a new line of jewelry trees.” The more detailed you become with your goals, the more focused you can get.  You will be able to drive your focus toward your goals and reach them!

3.  Write – Rewrite – Tweet – Share – Blog . The more you write and rewrite your goals the better you will remember and work on your goals.   Keep your goals in the front of your mind, the tip of your tounge, and the “palm of your hand”.  Why not Tweet about your goals, or write a blog post

4.  Track the Progress of Your Goal.   Tracking the progress of your goals in a spreadsheet is a gret way to visualize your goals.   Graphs are also another powerful way to visualize your goals.   The team here at Handmadeology has put together a free Excel spreadsheet that will help you track your sales and your goals for 2012.  The Handmadeology Team wants to help you with your Etsy goals and help you keep track of your Etsy sales.

  1. Excellent! Especially for us visual people who need to track visually what we aspire to statisically.
    many thanks!

  2. Love the idea to Tweet your goals… nothing like throwing it out there for all the world to help keep you accountable! Thanks :)

  3. Today was the first time I actually wrote out the vision I’d been feeling for my Harry Potter. I completely agree with this post – writing out my goals has somehow where I want to go. I plan on writing out my goals/visions so much more!

  4. There is something magical that happens when goals are written down…they do come true! And Yes, putting them out for the world to see holds yourself accountable. Always use the positive aspect and in the present tense!

  5. It is absolutely necessary to go old school and tactile when performing an exercise like this one. Even leaving post-it notes all over the place is a start. But, a way to track your goals, even a space to make note of sales etc is SO GOOD! Keep it right next to where you are most of the day… the computer, right? And, I would also like to add that including some sort of reward +/or tithe each month you meet and exceed your goals is good for morale!

  6. Great article! And true. Writing down goals somehow makes me focus better.
