Do you ever get the feeling that there is something you could be doing, perhaps something you should be doing, but you cannot garner up enough motivation to do that? That tingling, relaxing and self-absorbent feeling is also known as procrastination.
Procrastination is the evil that stops us from capitalizing on all the time that could be used judiciously. Unlike the popular myth that suggests money to be the most important currency, many have realized that time is more important. Your time is more important – to you, your family and your goals.
Goal-setting is the first phase of achieving goals, and you should make sure that you put your best foot forward. Realization of your ambition and life-long dreams can be possible through sincere dedication and appreciation of what you wish to achieve.
Since this post is about achieving your goals, let me ask you a simple question:
How motivated are you to achieve your goals?
Give it a number, out of 10
4? 6? Maybe even 10?
Just for the good people who come to The Next Goal to read, learn and improve; I offer you a quiz.
This quiz has been made available to you, and can be shared with others (just remember to link back to this post, and leave a comment!)
Unlike many other quizzes that make you answer 41 questions, and then give you a descriptive answer that does not mean much, I have kept things simple.
- You have to answer 10 questions
- Each question centers on finding out your motivation to achieve your next goal.
- In the end, you will get a percentage; between 0% and 100%. In the following section, I have explained what each percentage range tells about you.
- Just a tip before you take the quiz: When answering the questions, it would help if you visualize your next goal, and concentrate on the efforts you have made to achieve that goal.
Hopefully, now you are back, and you know your score. If it is low, don’t worry. There is enough material on The Next Goal to supplement your goal-seeking. In case you scored high, remember to remain consistent and carry your psyche forward to your next goal.
What Your Scores Mean:
0% to 20%
You lack motivation to achieve your goals. Sorry, no need to sugar-coat here. Either you have taken this quiz too soon (you are still thinking about your next goal) or you are not trying hard enough. Unless you change your thinking pattern quickly, you won’t get very far. Check out this post to get a quick idea on how to turn things around.
20% to 40%
It seems you have started, but you are struggling with direction. Don’t worry, many of us struggle coping with making and sticking to our goals. Without strong motivation, we are all but lost, and even simple challenges seem complex. Start convincing yourself that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.

40% to 60%
You are going in the right direction, though lacking in pace. It can be difficult to achieve complex targets, but you have some motivation to do so. Start rewarding yourself and ensuring that you stay focused towards the next goal. Remember, it’s a few steps to the stop, and usually, a strong dose of winning attitude should work.
60% to 80%
You are almost there. More persuasion and a little more motivation will help you achieve your goals. You have all but mastered the art of goal setting and goal achieving. If you can work on learning from your last goal, you could master the Universe. This is the major action point that you can take away from the results – learn from failures and successes of the past.
80% to 100%
Congratulations! You possess the right amount of motivation and enthusiasm to achieve your goals. It also seems like you know what Goal setting means and how you can work hard to achieve those goals. If you can keep your current level going, you would find achieving your goals to be a simple and straightforward process. Just to inspire you, check out this post. Good luck.
