Goals take time to achieve and big goals take bigger time to achieve. Often we set lofty goals for ourselves but get overwhelmed by how we can possibly get all of It done, or if we are actually making any progress towards these goals after all of this effort. Both of these concerns can be overcome by creating a goal spreadsheet to track our goals, our progress towards them and the tasks needed to get to these goals. It is easy to set up a goals spreadsheet and it can make achieving the goals much more efficient. Know your goals Before you can start to create an effective goals spreadsheet you first must know your goals. I know this sounds simplistic, but if you do not know where you are heading the goals spreadsheet will be unable to get you there. If you do not know your destination the map is irrelevant, if you are driving from Chicago to St. Louis a map of the East coast cannot help you. The map is only as good as the final destination the map is designed to direct you towards.
You need to keep track of domain names, and if you are writing for online writing platform such as Hubpages, or Squidoo, you need to keep track of all these URLs as well. You also need to keep track of all the pages within your websites. The reason you want to do this is because you will want to continue to build more and more back links to these pages, and if you have them all stored away neatly in one file, you will not have to dig through your site every time you want to create a simple back link. You should also keep track of all articles which you may be writing and submitting to article directories. You can create multiple spreadsheets in one main sheet to have all your information from one domain, or from one niche all in one main spreadsheet file. Once you get going in internet marketing you will soon discover that you have registered with more sites, such as social networking sites, bookmarking sites, affiliate networks, and created more usernames and passwords than you can remember. Spreadsheets are an excellent tool to keep track of all this information. If you are an affiliate marketer, you can use Google spreadsheets to keep track of all your affiliate links; and if you have products to sell, you can use is to keep track all your products and prices.
In todays economy, competitive landscape, and accountability standards you must have the data. Managers are getting blindsided because they do not know what is coming and what is going on. This is where the right project management software tool shines and spreadsheets fade. A good project management tool will be database-oriented and should allow for different types of ad hoc reporting across multiple projects. This enables the mining of all kinds of data. You simply cannot do this in a spreadsheet at the same level. If you really, really know what you are doing it is possible to tie spreadsheets together and generate some integrated data. But that is not the same thing. You simply cannot, on a whim, mine into the data represented in your multiple spreadsheets. And in todays environment, this is critically important. Gone are the days when not having the right data is acceptable.
