Achieve a Goal and Save $20…

by Tony Chung on January 19, 2007

I think that setting milestones/deadlines is the surest way of achieving something.

Especially if you’re not working for the man.

    At a job:
    The man sets deadlines for you, so that you can be productive during the time when the man is paying you.
    At school:
    Why do we have midterms, quizzes, and final exams in college? They’re deadlines to ensure that you will be productive and learn.
    Video games:
    Without getting past that boss in level 8, you will never get to level 9.

I’m contantly setting goals for myself because I am inherently a lazy mofo. I decided recently to try something new with a close friend:

    I am telling him to set a goal and a deadline. If he doesn’t reach his goal by the deadline, he owes me $20 in cash.

Think about it. You really don’t want to give a friend $20 free. So do it. Achieve that goal. And feel good about it after it’s happened and you don’t owe anybody anything.

I challenge you to make set a goal and deadline and have a friend hold you accountable.

Anybody gutsy enough to tell me your goal? 😉 If so, leave a comment.

Boost your career
Taking courses online is also a great way to be able to do the class work on your own time rather than have time obligations and requirements for each course. It is now possible to have a fully booked life and go to school with ease. Also, you will want to consider all the money in gas you would be saving by not having to commute to school on a daily basis………….
