      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.

      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.
