The year is racing by. Time seems to compact as we get older. Our goals seem to become harder and harder to achieve because we have so much to do and so little time. Do you realize that 100 days from now, Christmas will be over and the New Year is approaching? Where did the year go?
So if you’ve let the year slip away and haven’t achieved what you set out to achieve this year, I challenge you to the 100 Day Challenge.
What a great idea, from Rob Gordon (a mate on Google+):
I was just doing some planning and noticed that 100 days from today will be December 28, 2014.
That means that 100 days from Monday will be New Years Eve. Lot’s can happen in 100 days – but it can also slip by with little of significance happening.
Maybe it is time for a spurt – a race to the finish line of the start of the year. What will you have wanted to accomplish in the next 100 days – business or otherwise? Why not tell us right here – for all the world to see, exactly what you hope to accomplish in the next 100 days. (Use coded language if you don’t want to reveal certain things – for example “finish project X” or “accomplish health goal Y”)
Studies have proven that those who announce their goals are much more likely to accomplish them, and nothing horrible will happen if you fall a bit short. Who knows? – maybe we will even figure out how to help each other accomplish our goals.

Hey there! I notice in this post you talk about getting your blog to really succeed this year. I too am wanting to do this. Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thanks!
Sure Meagan, there are some highly recommended ones in Yoast SEO and All-in-One SEO – they’re both free and do a good job, but you have to manually update the Meta tags and Meta Description for every single post and page, so it can be pretty time consuming. GeorgeKatsoudas.com has some good plugins, not that I’ve checked if he has an SEO one. He’s got one for building your Video site map, which is terrific if you’ve got youtube videos on site, and because Google loves Youtube, this will rang your video higher (if you have a Video XML Site Map. I trust George’s products – they are all fantastic little one-click tools to help with some of the tedious jobs when running a wordpress website. Cheers..Sandi
Can I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who actually understands what they’re talking about on the web. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
We always recommend to our clients (Weight loss after Hysterectomy) to set a smaller goal to begin to lessen water retention and lose excess unwanted fat. By eliminating Gluten from the diet, we give our intestines an opportunity to endure damages Gluten previously caused.
Breaking your goal down into tiny steps that are really acheiveable is the best way to make them happen
