I set small goals for a new website. I make them small goals so that there is a better chance of the website succeeding and meeting the goals.

But I only give the website about 1 full year to meet those goals.

If the site can't meet the goals in one year or less, then I usually close the site down.

Do any of you practice this sort of strategy? Do you allow more time, or less time?
