Do you set goals in the life ?

I do set my own goals to be achieved within a period of time and work for that. Eventhough not systematically, I do monitor the progress of my goals mentally and if deviating will try to stick to those goals. One of the highest goal I ever achieved was to get a Government job. I was not crazy to get a Government job, but the prestige attached in our society for those jobs attracted me to get one. When I was working in a private firm, I set those goals. I got the job, but after working I quit the job and joined again in a private company. Do you set goals in your life. Goals may be for anything you like to achieve. For example even for getting paid from myLot this month when your account is still at 2.5 dollars and you have only 10 days more in September! Please share your experience. Happy myLotting.

I didn't set any goals for myself when I was young, but now I find it's a very valuable thing to do. I started earning money on the internet early this year, and I have set myself a target for a good monthly income by the end of the year. I am well on the way towards it, and I am confident that I will do it. I have also made other short term goals. So far I have managed to reach payout every month at myLot, without too much effort.

I think that setting goals in life are very important so that we can tell ourselves that we must achieve a certain degree

Hello metalgang!!!1I agree with you perfectly. We must set goals so that in the future we can measure how far have we achieved in life. In life it is good to be satisfied with what we are doing and achieving.

Hi friend! I have also set a goal here in mylot and that is to reach payout every month. I get to achieve it every month and I am happy about it. But for now I have set a new goal starting today until the end of the month. I am trying to respond on all my friend's notifications on their started discussions. I started with 144 and this is my 129th email. Hope I will finish it until September 30. I don't usually do this but I want some change and I want to try it. I always set goals in my life. Even about simple things I try to set my mind on achieving it. It makes me feel happy whenever I am successful to have achieved it. I think goals are important in everyone's life. It's what one keeps him/her going everyday of her/his life. My goals does that to me all the time. Ciao!

I think it is a part of human nature to set goals. Having said that, I tend not to set too many in recent years. However, when I was working or getting an education, I had many more. I guess in a way, even list making for tasks for your day are a form of goal setting. They are things you need to achieve in a short period of time. So, yes I do set goals almost on a daily basis!

I do like to set myself goals. As I am in college at the moment, my goals are to score very high marks on coursework that I'm working on, then in december my goals will be to achieve high module marks on a couple of the exams which I'm taking early. Then I will be trying to gain high enough marks in my other exams to go to uni.. and from there, more and more goals will be set for me! With regards to income, I would like to be making $25 a week online by Christmas. I don't think that this is particularly unrealistic, as on NeoBux, I am making about $3 a week, with only a small number of referrals, and a standard account. As soon as I get golden, this will double, and will increase as I get more and more referrals. Also, I obviously have this site, which I earn about $1.50 a week on at the moment. So I think that the goals which I have set myself are realistic, and I should be abel to get them!

I don't set goals and I should. For some reason I don't feel any urge to do it.

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all

Yes i do set goals in life instead i think it is a mandatory job for a person to set a particular goal or lots or goals to fulfill. So for that reason only can that person have faith and will work hard to achieve that goal. If people do not have goals then how can he survive the world. Though i have a weak will power i set goals and try to fulfill them as much is possible.

I also used to set goals in my life. For me, its a compass to evaluate how well I have done in my life. I have short term goals and I also have long term goals with me. Often times, this short term goals is like a stepping stone for me. Like planning what to do at work and at home, and how to accomplish this things. My long term goal is quite personal which only caters me with my family. This goals I step aside for the moment as I am still evaluating whether or not I should change my plan in the future.

I believe in setting goals in our life. All of us should have our short term goals and also our long term goals. I am now currently working hard to achieve one of my short terms goal. The goal is to get rid of all my credit cards by the end of October 2008. You see, only by setting the goal, I have something to work for. I have target to achieve and I have progress to manage and measure. For example, as of today, I had managed to close two cards already... Just imagine if I have not set the goals. I could have not taken any action and in the end I would have achieved nothing. Same goes to myLot. I have set a goal to make 10 posts daily so that I would reach my first 100 in 10 days and I have a target to reach my minimum payout amount in October 2008 and receive my first payment in November 2008. For those who are about to set your goals, try to make it realistic and if possible with some sort of challenges to yourself. You will appreciate it more once you have achieved your goals! All the best! Cheers!
