      Great list. There is a perfect site for this:, not only you can find goal examples, but also detailed action plans and goal setting ideas.

      "Stop overreacting" is genius! I need that now. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!These goals are wonderful and I am trying to apply them bit by bit :)

      Good empowerment hub. I'm kind of glad it wasn't just another "here's how to set goals for yourself" article. (^_^)

      I love the camel picture at the top! (*looks down the list to find "ride a camel!"*) heehee

      I'm a little worried about 35-39 though. Stop altogether? Like forever and ever? LOL I'm way too weak to get any points for those... (~_^)

      I'd like to add one to the list (*thinks about one person in particular*): Stop overreacting! LOL

      Fun. Rated up! And yay for #1!!!

      Prettynutjob30, I agree. Without goals life has no real focus or purpose. EyesStraightAhead, I like the idea of checking in with others on how goals are going. A list like this is a nice alternative to choosing one specific goal. It is more about developing a positive way of life.

      Great suggestions for goals that we should all incorporate into our day, month, and year. I would love to know that I accomplished at least one a day throughout my life as well! Though sometimes in doing one, a few of the others could be accomplished, so it could become a fun game among family members and something to share at the end of the night!

      Thanks alocsin! Those are all great questions. I suppose I would be happy to score one a day for the rest of my life :)

      Excellent advice here. I'm wondering how you would score this. Maybe a point for every goal achieved. I wonder how difficult it would be to get 50 points in one day. Voting this Up and Awesome.
