I need a new goal/resolution. Some result to work for.

Asked by freckles (363points) January 29th, 2010

So this new years I decided to be serious about making changes. Well I have lost 3 pounds over the last 2 weeks, simply by counting and eating the necessary amount of calories from a tool on . I also am achieving another result, of making the money I need to pay tuition by working ALOT.

So I love this whole idea of doing something and then actually getting results. I am very undisciplined, and so now it is exciting to see what you can accomplish with discipline.

What other good goals can I try for? I am going to keep the health and work habits up but I need something new to add, I’m addicted to working towards a result now.

(Oh and I already decided to teach myself Swahili as my next goal, but I need more goals, thanks!)

Hm…it really depends on what you have and what you want. Unless you want to reveal your life on the internet (I would say no to that) then only you know what you want and want to achieve.

But hey, take it this way. If you manage to think up something to achieve, haven’t you already achieved something?

One of our members here has a goal that could work for anyone: Learn one new thing by lunch everyday.

New long term goal for you – acquire a logistical point of management in the slow demise of the centralization industry. Centralized publishing, management, and resource distribution are all obsolete, and they need to die off so the healthy saplings can grow.

The two you’ve taken on are very admirable.

How are you about maintaining your space? Every night before you go to bed, spend 10 -15 minutes putting things away, clean something in the bathroom every time you’re in there, make your bed in the morning as soon as you get up, wash a dish as soon as you use it. If you’re working a lot, the result will be coming home to a tidy space that’s easy to clean.

Another good goal is to eat breakfast every day. This is helpful in supporting your first goal of losing weight.

Good luck to you! Stay with it. And welcome to Fluther.

@PandoraBoxx Thanks! That is right along the lines of the kind of things I should do.

Oh and the breakfast idea, I have started doing that and its amazing; I eat a hearty LeanCuisine dinner every morning when I wake up. I count it into my daily calories so it is not overeating or anything. And it keeps me satisfied all morning. mmm so good.

If you think of any others Pandora, please pass them along, I like your style!

@Fenris “What are we gonna do tonight Brain?” “Same thing we do every night pinky; try to take over the world!” haha no, but thats what it kind of sounded like to me.

I think that the more goals you have the harder it’ll be to deepen your commitment to the goals you’ve already worked towards – especially since you say it’s difficult for you.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir well, this kind of thing used to be difficult for me. But now that I see if you stick with something and put the work into it, that you can really get results back, I am very motivated, and feel like I can take on tons of new good habits because making good habits is becoming a habit for me now…. if that makes sense.
