2010 Goals and Progress (or lack thereof)

Let’s dive right into it since I am currently fighting off sleep…

I have finished the goals I am going to achieve for the first half of 2010! I went very aggressive in setting these goals, and I love to challenge myself. Without further ado here are my summarized goals.

  • In January,February, and March we  plan to acquire at least 5 serious buyers and wholesale at least 2 deals in each month. So by the end of March we would have done at least 6 deals, and have 15 buyers (hopefully more)
  • From  April to June we would like to wholesale an average of 4 properties a month, and continue to add on average 5 buyers a month.
  • This on is more on a personal front, but figured I should include it:  Not rely on my 9 to 5 job for a paycheck!!

The more experienced investors that read this will probably think I’m crazy and that I’m setting these goals too high. If you think so let me know! You probably have merit in thinking that.

Outside of working on the 2010 goals for my business I haven’t been very active or focused on real estate. The 9 to 5 has been pretty draining the last 2 days, but I won’t let that become my excuse for reaching my goals. Over the next week and a half I will be working on some marketing plans. A set of plans to find buyers, and another to find sellers. I will have the marketing plans done and ready to be executed come the beginning of the year.

    I think your goals aren’t high enough!

    I also think you need to break down your goals into smaller goals. For instance, instead of saying you’re going to get X amount of buyers per month, break it down by the month, week and days.

    Goals mean nothing without a plan to achieve those goals. You need to know HOW you’re going to achieve those goals. For instance, are you going to spend 5 hours a day after work each day calling ‘for rent’ ads, speaking to the landlords about buying more properties etc…

    Spend 8 hours a day on weekends driving around looking for the big dumpsters in driveways of obvious rehabs and talking face to face actual rehab investors?

    Goals are a waste of time in my book. Sure, I might talk about them and how to improve your goals and/or accomplish your goals but in reality, you’re only ‘telling’ yourself these things because you don’t believe in your own ability to accomplish anything unless you pretend to call it a ‘goal’

    Instead, just DO IT!!! don’t talk about it. Write a plan, keep it to yourself, do what you wrote down, check off/cross out each task as you complete them and continue to kick ass!!!

    Hey Brian, I don’t think your goals are too high either. Like Nick said, just DO IT!

    However, I disagree about keeping your goals to yourself. It’s too easy to cop-out that way. When you hide the bad grade in school from your parents, it’s as if it never happened. If you tell the world about your goals, you’re not only holding yourself accountable, but other people will hold you accountable as well. And that’s a good thing!

      Hey Justin,

      Thank you for your comment. I agree with you about hiding your goals. I’m not going to cheat myself and try to cop-out of my goals.

      By the way I’ve been going through the archives in your blog and I like your blogging style and the content.
