Targets and goals are wonderful things to have. Without goals and targets, one can keep on working hard but not reach anywhere. Everything natural on this earth has a purpose, so there is no reason why something man-made should not have a target too.
The MAG also has a clear objective, which I hope to share with all of you some day.
But a journey can become tedious if we focus only on the destination. Sometimes the destination can seem so far away, that hope abandons us, and despair sets in. To avoid that, it is important that we break our journey into parts, or, in other words, create smaller objectives and targets which will go a long way in helping us to get where we want to reach.
For The MAG, there are a set of targets that we hope to achieve within the next two months. Some of these targets are :
- Achieving an Alexa Rank of below 100,000
- Increasing the Google PR from 2 to 3, or 4
- Increasing the number of RSS feed subscribers from 50+ to 100+
I have chosen the above as targets, because of one simple reason : these are numbers, and hence can be measured. Increasing them is no guarantee of a site’s quality, yet it will be good to see these numbers increase.
I will deal with the subject of how you can help us in achieving these targets in subsequent posts. Watch this space…
