Goals for March 26-April 1, 2017

This week I’m diving deeper in to a new project. This means there will likely not be a new post in the Health or Business category, as that time will go to doing research.

  • Publish weekly goals
  • Add a relevant person to LinkedIn and Twitter – target sports management people
  • Update Feedly feeds to include sports management and youth sports
  • Share article on Linked In and Twitter
  • Post “Two Reasons” on Twitter and Linked In
  • Begin PLANe process

Weekly schedule


  • Publish Goals
  • Find 3 or more sports management feeds to add to Feedly

How did last week’s goals go:

  • Publish weekly goals
  • Add a relevant person to LinkedIn and Twitter
  • Comment on a Feedly article
  • Comment on a LinkedIn article or post
  • Comment on a Twitter post
  • Post “Email Segment” on Twitter and Linked In
  • Publish another Phase I post and compare to the first one

Not a ton to cross off from the past week. The new content approach is pretty fun to do and I’m finding that I’d rather spend time working on that. However, I’ve still got to build a network and pay attention to what is going on.

Finished my first open and pretty happy about that. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Not the workouts, I knew those would be brutal. But since I could never find a judge to validate my scores, it was completely on me to set up all the video meeting standards. Which I didn’t do a very good job with. But if you want to check them out, click here for all five on YouTube.

Been great to be able to knock out a bunch of yard work over the weekend. Hoping the sun stays out!
