Six Hot Blog Posts to Take Action On

The new year is a time for setting goals and making plans. If you stop right there, though, you're not going to get anywhere this year. I love planning. I'm a mind-mapping fiend! But if you make elaborate plans, or even beautiful mindmaps, that doesn't give you success. It all goes back to walking the walk – you can sure talk the talk, but if you don't walk the walk you're not getting anywhere. Take action! You've heard it before. Just go!

When I read a blog post that I get a lot of value from I try and take action from it. Sometimes it's a small action, sometimes it's a big one, or a series of actions. But I try and do something — and soon — to improve my business (or life). Here are six posts that spurred me to action. Read them and take action. Read, Aim, and FIRE.

I love Seth's regular little snippets of wisdom. This one was so powerful for me that it has stayed on my Instapaper front page since he published it. Normally I shuffle things off into folders then process them away. Not this post. This one is powerful. It's about owning your own life. This will take you 60 seconds to read. Make the time, make it part of your life.

A Tiny Email List That Delivers

Ana's posts are fantastic because they are super actionable. You can read one, open a new tab in your browser, and use her info immediately. This post is one of my favorite ones because it's one of those that helps the little guy, the underdog, get up and get going. Not only is this post packed with strategies, Ana links to several other posts that will keep you busy for awhile. She knows what she's talking about, so dig into this post about how she keeps her tiny email list happy enough to help her land a top spot on the leader-board of a huge guru product launch:


I'm a wife and mother who loves working online. This is my little home on the web. I run Milk and Mud to share what I'm discovering as I run my own business and explore personal development.

Hi Kristen,
I have already began writing out clear and actionable goals for my blog in 2012. Last year was all about learning and growing and this year I will take my blog to the next level.

You have some really good posts mentioned here that I need to check out.

    That’s awesome Justin. I think that writing them out in an actionable format is really important because it means you actually get something done. Your blog looks great, I will keep an eye on where you head in the coming year 🙂
