What are you trying to change/improve about yourself?

Asked by jlm11f (12403points) June 19th, 2008

I have noticed that I am always trying to change or improve some part of my personality/life. Such as right now I am working on changing my sleep schedule (with little luck) and am working on my temper (that one is going a lot better). Are you trying to change something about yourself or learn something? Or are you just perfect? :)

Health (diet and exercise)
Social life

Always wanting to avoid poor food choices (somewhat successful) and build exercise habits (thank goodness for dogs—they who must be walked).

I also am working on improving my procrastination habit, that is to say, decreasing same.

Sorry! I meant this to be a part of the question – And how is that working for you?

@ Marina – I have given up on trying to solve my procrastination habit. It’s one problem that is just too hard to tackle. I asked this question because its always good to know how others are doing with their goals because it motivates me to keep up with mine!

I love reading, so i keep with that one, diet, a lil’ bit of excercise, also I’m trying to get the car of my dreams or at least approach to it, everything is working out, but it’s kind of hard, but I enjoy it! Also, I’m trying to be more relaxed (i’m way too stressed) that’s the hard one :(

-Better eating habits.
-I stopped taking adderal to study recently… I’m definitely trying to stay off.
-I’m trying to study Italian for at least 2 hours a day (after my summer school class).
-I just got a better mountain bike; now I’m working on bunny hopping higher.

And I’m trying to be less of a pushover with my girlfriend.

I’m endevouring to watch more television and make it a goal to try each new fast food restaurant that hits town. Still unsure whether or not I can invest in the commitment smoking involves.

Got some personal trainer sessions coming up next week. I’ve procrastinated on that part for long enough.

This is always my favorite interview question! Love to see how uncomfortable people get when answering; trying to give a good example but not talk themselves down :)

As for me: A little while ago it was to get stuck in to more hobbies/creative outlets. Now it’s trying to organize myself….

I’m trying to eat healthy and lose my small but existent teenage gut.

To take good care of myself, physically, emotionally, and lighten up

To stand up for myself more, without being too bitchy – I was raised to be nice and polite but lately I feel like I get taken advantage of

To be the best spouse and stepmom I can be – patient, understanding, loving…and fun!

I’m working on being more spontaneous, and expressing myself more often. I get a lot of practice here. :) GQ, PnL!

I am trying to improve my perception of humanity and peace within myself, it’s taking a lot, but I am making strides.

I’m trying to Fluther more.

1.To learn how to “just say no!”
2.To complete one task before beginning three more.
3.To stop spreading myself too thin.
4. If #2 or #3 doesn’t work, revert to #1.
what a vicious cycle

1. Improve on my language, it has gotten worse since I moved house sadly. It is getting a bit better. A little bit.
2. Do something other then sit at the computer all evening, includes doing more photography, getting a little bit active and the like
3. Get to bed earlier, it’s like midnight now and I get up at 5:50am sigh.
4. Be less hypocritical, I guess that’s how I am as a human but it would be nice to see large improvements in that area.

And a number of other things including do more school work…

Try n not to hold grudges. When someone is mean or does something to me that I think is wrong I hold it against them FOREVER

I am trying to fluther less at work after the ball & chain resorted to asking if it was an appropriate activity on fluther.

Working out okay…my lurve has suffered.

I’m trying to get a grip. It is taking a lot longer than I had hoped.

I’m trying to lose a bit of weight here.

Skyrail's avatar

Welcome to Fluther JacksterD, I hope you succeed in losing the weight you want (or don’t want, hah) :)

jlm11f's avatar

Thank you all for answering i forgot about this Q temporarily, but lurve for all! Hope everyone has made some improvement in this goal since they answered the Q. I definitely have been able to improve my sleep schedule a lot but it still needs work of course. And now I have two new goals – fluther less (study more) and get back on that exercise routine that got messed up in the last 2 weeks. Good luck to all!

Welcome to Fluther JacksterD, hope you enjoy your stay!
