I belong to quite a few different programs. And normally I try to set goals as to how much I want to try and get done in it, or an amnount I want to reach. I haven't quite figured out how to go about setting a goal for myLot. So my question is this: Do you set you goal for the day in myLot on the amount of posts? On the amount of discussions you start? Or to try and make x amount of money for the day? Thank you! Chey

Hi Chey, Heck yeah I set goals. That's the only way to go. How does someone know where they're headed to without goals? Here in mylot, I try to set goals by the number of posts and replies I make. I don't worry about the money. I know if I put in quality and quantity, the money will follow. Just like anything in life, do something to the best of your ability and the rewards will always follow. Good luck and thanks for posting interesting topics.

Thank you for your response petebaja. I agree with you, everything in life needs to have a goal, something to strive for. I'm just not sure how to set one in myLot yet. Also thank you kindly for the compliment. *smiling*

I set a few of them last month. I fond i was not able to stick to them. I don't find the need to make a mylot goal. I said I would do 20 posts a day and answer the same. That day just flew by and when I had looked up. I have done 107 for that day. I had the same goal for the next day and found I did 104 and lost 12 due to a poster losing a lot of his posts. So as It's nice to set goals in life. I don't need one for mylot. like today I can't post much. I am looking to blog and my hands are swollen. So here and there I am able to get in some. Nothing close to making any goals or anything. Welcome to mylot.

Thank you for your response..107 in a day? Well, I already know, I wouldn't be able to do that. But that is absolutely great on your part, and your numbers show it. Thank you also for the welcome. I wish you luck with your hands. Take care.

This is a great discussion you have started. I am very much a goal setter. I have long term goals. Short term goals. I even have goals that I set 20 years ago, that I consider lifetime goals that I want to accomplish.

First off, I would like to say thank you for the compliment. Secondly thank you for your response to this. I like your answer. I too have goals set for 15 years from now (to retire, and have the ranch I always wanted). To me life without goals is not much of a life at all.

To be honest with you I dont set a goal for posting on here because I would never reach it in a million years! I just go with the flow and answer discussions where I can and I post a discussion if I feel that its worthwhile for me, I like to have a reason to put up a discussion.

You must have some high goals? I have always been told set your goals as high as possible, and if you don't reach them, it wasn't for a lack of trying. What you reach is more than what you had before.

if i have enough time, i usually limit myself with the number of posts i need to make.. but sometimes when im in a hurry, i just post replies as much as i can as long as time permits me.. nonetheless, i still enjoy posting here and it makes me practice my english better..

Thank you for your response. Seems everyone has their own way, and time is one of the main things in them all.

hi, back then I never set any certain goal but as a lot of things coming to my daily life to deal with, I start to manage all these things and set a goal for each of them. so if I know that something doesn't work no matter how hard I've been working for it, I will know that I have to get a better way or even stop doing it. :) about myLot, I'm not setting on the amount of posts or discussion start. I'm setting my goal on finding a best way to make a better post that worth my time and bandwidth spending. :)

I like to set a goal of at least 25 posts a day. I know, I know I have fallen way shoet of that lately, but I also went over board a little in trying to get to 500 posts. But I will need to get back into the 'swing of things' now that I am rested lol! I try to respond to alot of discussions daily, after I finish commenting back to some of the ones that responded to my discussions on the previous day. I try to start 2 or 3 new discussions per day as well, which include picture and links. As I said, I don't always reach my goals, as quality is much more important to me than quantity. Also having fun and taking time to enjoy each discussion I enter into. This is also why I don't put time restrictions on these goals as I spend different amounts of time eac day, depending on the discussions and the real life tasks that may or may not get in the way on any given day. But yeah, it is nice to have 'goal guidelines' to try and adhere to! Do you like my self-portrait???lol

thank you for your response.. I think setting a goal of trying to reach a certain number isn't a bad thing. Maybe that is how I should view it. I know it was anticipation to reach 100 so I could get my star (which I found out doesn't mean all that much.. *laughing*) But I guess it's a good way in keeping motivated. oh yeah, the self portrait is absolutely breath taking.. *LOL*

When I find the time I try to make at least 10 responses to discussions a day. It makes me a little bit but I don't care to much about that. I like that there are so many different things to choose from and respond to. Some days I can make up to 30 responses but it also depends on how much spare time I have. Setting goals is a good thing as well, I do short term and long term goals and try to reach them in the set amount of days/weeks/ or months. Nice Post.

Thank you for your response miller. I have tried doing 10 responses a day too, but some time, I just don't have the time. And then some days it seems like the discussions I run across I done answered already on someone elses name. So I don't feel right about answering it again.. Or maybe I should? Also thank you for the compliment. *smiling*

i used to have another account here at mylot and back then i used to type a certain amount of posts daily and reached over $20.00 USD, but that account ended up getting axed because i posted a couple of links trying to get some refferals, i only did it in sections where people were requesting this info.... but anyways it is against the rules and mylot killed my account and earnings. now i just pop on every now and again and make just a few posts a day partly because it took so long to earn that money that was taken away and partly because i think my time is worth more than i get here at mylot. remember there are many money making sites out there and i like the sites where your earnings add up as you go... i think mylot rips off their members even though the amount they pay is petty, they still dont pay for each post even when within the guidelines. ta ta ;)
