Simply to do what I've been doing all along... 7-10 posts per week, at least 20 comments a day, and at least 20 questions answered a day. This should lead to my primary goal this year of reaching 2 million points.

No, definitely not.  Most of these measures do not lead to real business or income.  I focus more on what will drive my business (and website traffic which drives business) and relationships/learning (which can lead to business ideas which leads to more business.

Many of the measures you mention can actually be a distraction from the real goals as we may be measuring the wrong thing (you get what you measure).  It's different when you are new here, as you need to build the habit, etc.

To me, meetups can be very valuable and phone conversations and reading/commenting.  I think some of the training is great, too, but I've been broadening my horizons on the training aspect beyond this site.

I hope that made sense.

Yes, more followers.

Mom, sister and cat are not being loyal, (that cat is) so need to grow my base.

However, if I understand correctly, there exists NO BENEFIT WHATSOEVER in gaining followers. You can' t even talk to your "Followers" as a group.

The answer is yes ... and no.  My goal for 2017 is primarily post on my WordPress sites.  Only allow myself to login to AR after I have completed my other tasks for the day.  I do want to remain very much engaged in the AR Community - login daily, read Q&A , posts and comments.  If I can get to contests ... I will participate in them as well.

The only points I care about are those that translate into dollars in my bank account so will focus on that.
