Having a goal for the year.
At the start of January I decided to make a big push with my STEEM account. I had spent the previous year and a half buying and earning my way up to dolphin. It took a lot of work and consistency to get there as well as buying a couple of thousand STEEM when the markets dropped.
I think that everybody who is still here believes in the future of STEEM and we can see that vision starting to take shape. With this in mind I want to be in the right position when the markets do recover and the next wave of people flood in.
I set targets for myself and while I still do everything in my power to help other people and projects I want to keep growing my account. We have seen the birth of tribes and hopefully the start of SMT's in the near future. 3speak have brought out a great website and splinterlands are working on their mobile app. We have so much potential and it's starting to take shape in front of our eyes.
I like goals and targets. I find it easier to reach them when there is a target in the distance. I seem to need that focus to put in the effort to have something to win. That is why at the start of the year I set myself the highly ambitious target of getting to 10,000SP. It looked like a long shot at the time but did what i can to get there. Using the apps and keeping up a consistent effort at posting and engaging to steadily increase my SP every month.
I took stock at the start of January and looked at my account SP which was sitting on 6580SP. I've kept up my activity on a consistent basis and have been involved with multiple communities which has kept me up to date and active. I think that it's the key to doing well here and I know that it's not always easy to but I think we will get there in the end to the blockchain that we are looking for.
The targets from January.
- 3,420 for the year
- 285 per month
- 66 per week
- 9.5 per day
People talk about SPUD and commitment to the chain but I like to do it every day. Turn up every day, blog @actifit, play @steemmonsters and now use #sportstalk. All of these efforts add up over time and growth becomes easier. I still comment and curate constantly as well as all of the time spent on discord but for me it's not a chore. I like what I do here. I believe in the future of STEEM and want to be part of it's success.
It happened well before plan and even at that I thought it was a long shot but i managed to get to 10k SP. It can be done and hopefully even more from here.
I even stopped exactly on the 10k mark for dramatic purposes. I believe in the vision for STEEM and will be here until the end. Either we all win together or it will go up in smoke. I think that powering up is hugely important and would say that to everybody. Stop selling STEEM and power it up. Take it off the markets and bring it back into the system. We set the price of STEEM and there are obviously people willing to sell at this low price otherwise it would be a lot higher.
I seem to earn most of my STEEM from splinterlands as I play every day to complete the quest and earn a nice bit of DEC in Diamond league. Not a bad way to grow. I still post on @actifit every day and have picked up a lot of AFIT tokens as well.
We have seen the emergence of tribes which are brilliant but I will be focusing on just a few of them as there are a lot that don't hold any interest for me.
I plan on being here for a long time to come but I do think it will be a different place in a years time. I think that people will be onboarded into their communities or apps and won't be seeing the backend of STEEM at all. They will earn their community tokens and STEEM will be the base currency for all of these becoming a lot harder to earn and a rare commodity.
Looking forward to seeing all of this unfold over the next few months and hopefully it turns out the way that I expect it to. Enjoy.
