Well I made it...nothing like waiting till the last second. With one earning day left I managed to make my payout. I'm very proud of myself considering I've been trying to get a quilt done at the same time. I didn't think I'd make it but I did. I'm glad I've started getting back into the swing of things. I always like it when I reach my goals. Now my other goal is to have the Mormon quilt done for my brother by this evening. I have 10 rows left and then it has to be put together. Wish me luck!! **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Hello! Congratulations on reaching your goal! It is really awesome when you can reach your objectives, isn't it? Yesterday I had 8.87 dollars, and I was doubting that I could make my payout. Until I got full of hope and said: "I will reach it and it will be on the next update!". I started posting, responding to many, many discussions. I earned almost 2 dollars, more than enough to reach my Payout. Now I know that before August 15th I will be paid. My next goal is to reach 15 Dollars before August 15th. I'd be really glad if I could reach it today, but I know that it will be way too hard. Yesterday I had to put so much effort to make those two dollars, imagine to make twice it! LOL I'd be amazed! I'm starting to like this idea. I think I will try it. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

Well, I'm no where near my 90's but it seems that those that have gotten them treasure them so I'm glad of that. Perhaps they'll be something to be passed down to the next generation. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I was so far behind last week I thought for sure I'd miss out on payout this month. But I've been limiting my EverQuest time and working hard on the quilt and I finally made it. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Goals are great things to have and achieve. I am setting goals for every area of my life. Whether it is personal life or businesses, goals will help me streamline my activities without wasting precious time. Take for example mylot.com. A simple goal of how much I personally want to earn each month will help me plan how long I should be online. At the same time, I'd be able to know how many responses should I do per day.

I've been doing the same thing and setting more goals to get things done more. It seems to make it easier on me and I get more done. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I call it a Mormon quilt b/c it has a picture of the St. Louis Temple on it and it's for my younger brother who's a Mormon. It's going to look really nice when I get it done. I'll be posting a picture here. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Congratulations twoey it always feels good when you reach your goals! I actually surpassed my goal for this month I had set 25.00 as my mylot goal and now I'm going to have at least 30.00. This is starting to turn into some real money and I am happy about it. If only I didn have so many darn bills I'd really be able to enjoy it.

Well, good for you, Twoey! Both on setting a goal in the first place, and then reaching it. I don't set goals here at myLot, but I did manage to reach payout a couple days ago. I've been so lax in posting lately... and don't even ask about my big cross-stitch project, which has been sitting patiently in the corner for many moons now, just waiting for me to finish it and take it off the scroll!

I was doing really good about making payout and even breaking my previous months amount but then I started playing EverQuest2 and lost over a month to it. I'm slowly getting back on track and limiting my playing time. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Congratulations on making payout. And good luck on your quilt project. I managed to make payout last weekend. Fortunately I set my goals low, so I can usually make it within at least 2 months. I always try for one though. But summertime is hard and harder still when my husband is home. lol

Here's wishes on hoping you make it. I didn't get the quilt done yet...it seems that the angels are working against me. First my Mom and her peaches to can and then I find out that we have inspections today...can't have the quilting all over when they come for those. So, I've extended the deadline till tommorrow night. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Sadly no I didn't make it..I don't know why or how I didn't but I only made $9.74 when it updated this morning. It could be becuase they also took about 15 points a few days ago since a few of the discussions I responded to were deleted. Well, they are always next month..

Yeah, I got lost in my EverQuest game and just found my way back out. It's amazing how much time you can lose when you get stuck in a game. I'm glad to be back on track too. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
