Goals For The Under-Achiever

It has been a wild ride here at The Next Goal.  Since we launched the site a couple of months ago, it has been a never-ending series of goals and challenges.  Have you been playing along at home?  Have you set some goals for yourself?

I’m sure many of you have wanted to join in on the fun, but for some reason you didn’t.  Maybe you don’t have the free time or are afraid of failing.  It is important to all of us that EVERYONE has a chance to reach their next goal, so I’ve put together a list to help you out.  I’ve created a few sample goals to get you started on your journey.

New Years Resolutions
Get a jump on 2012 by coming up with a few resolutions now.  Just write them down somewhere and worry about it in January.  One great resolution is to try and work on procrastination.  Make that priority #1 once 2012 gets here.

Gain 3 Pounds
These days, it seems like everyone is trying to lose 10 pounds via some crazy diet or exercise program.  Why not zig when everyone else zags?  Set a goal to GAIN 3 pounds by the end of the year.  By adding a donut and softdrink to your daily breakfast routine, you can be on the road to a new pants size in no time at all.  Of course, you should always check with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise program.

Add Some TV
Take a few minutes to add a new show to your Tivo or DVR.  It doesn’t matter if you choose a comedy or a drama.  The important part is that you spend an extra 30-60 minutes each day in front of the TV.

Snooze More
We all love to hit the snooze button in the morning, so why limit yourself.  Try setting the alarm 10-15 minutes earlier so you can hit snooze and extra couple of times.  The extra arm movement can actually help to slowly build up your muscles – although I can’t prove that medically.

Foreign Language Programs
Want to put an international twist on your goal setting?   Buy yourself one of the many “Learn A New Language” programs.  It is not necessary to listen to the CDs – our goal is to purchase the program.  The first step is always the hardest, so our goal is to simply do the first step.

Your Turn!
Hopefully this list will get your mind going and you can come up with some more goals for the under-achiever.  If so, I hope you will share them below.  We can ALL use an easy goal every now and then.

  1. Larry,

    I can handle a list of goals like that. I like the one about snooze more but not sure my boss would think it was so great.

    I do think everyone needs to have a goal to spend some time on themselves also with other goals.

    Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what we have to do we forget to take care of ourselves and spend some quality time doing something we enjoy.

  2. Hmmm…. My underachiever goals are to spend 2 hours a day watching TV, 4 hours a day playing games mindlessly, 6 hours a day mindlessly surfing the internet and 16 hours a day sleeping broken up into 2 8 hour naps.

  3. Well I’m not sure I got the full jist of the post, but I guess I’m not as much of an under-achiever as I thought! LOL

  4. Great goals! I. Think I’m going to add spend more time randomly reading other people’s blogs instead of all this work I keep doing at the moment. I need to free my mind a bit……

  5. Hey Larry,

    lol This was a fun one! I haven’t quite seen this angle on New Years Resolutions before.

    I think it’s really a good idea to make at least one kind of true “love me love me love me” concession each year though. Seems we’re all so bombarded these days by life, EMF, Microwaves, Wifi, 4G, XRay…blah The list is long. The “Snooze More” suggestion especially appealed to me. I do see myself adding that!

    Very original indeed! :)

    I think I could handle the finding a new TV show! :-)

    My goal for 2012 is to find 10 charities that get little publicity, but deserve my money. Some local and some not. There are so many people out there helping and they receive almost no recognition. So, if you know of any deserving ones, please let me know.
