Rory, a Guy Called Bloke, has given us another one of his “Question Fun” prompts. This one is all about “Going for Gold” (i.e., personal goal setting and achievement).
What are your greatest strengths?
My modesty and humility.
What are your worst weaknesses?
My modesty and humility.
What are your personal values to life?
To live each day to its fullest without killing myself.
What drives you through the day, each day?
How do you feel about setting goals, be these small, little or large?
It’s always good to set goals, but I rarely do, especially now that I’m a man of leisure (i.e., retired).
Do you achieve them, every time?
How do you celebrate when you do achieve them and equally how do you react when you do not reach what you set out to acquire?
Since I don’t set them, I neither achieve them nor fail to do so. I do celebrate waking up alive each morning, though.
Do you set unrealistic goals and targets for yourself?
The reason I don’t set personal goals is that I know it would be unrealistic for me to reach them.
When thinking about making goals or targets for yourself to set upon, how do you work that into your daily routine?
Are you realistic when thinking about what you wish to achieve for yourself?
Absolutely realistic, which is why I don’t bother setting goals.
Do you set a schedule and ‘simply go for gold’, or are you a little more relaxed about the whole affair?
What affair? I’m not having an affair. I swear, sweetheart, I’m not!
Do you ever deliberately set yourself challenges that take you out of your comfort zone?
I rather enjoy staying in my comfort zone, so no.
What would you do, if you suddenly had a lump sum of one million in your currency land on your doorstep with the instruction of ‘spend how you wish?’
I would spend it as I wish. I’m good at following instructions.
If ‘fear’ wasn’t an issue for you, what would you do?
What do you love doing more than anything else, but haven’t done recently – why not?
Downhill skiing (fully clothed, by the way). Why not? I’m old and would likely end up breaking some bones.
Forget three wishes, you have been granted one wish that will grant you 100% instant success in whatever you next think about achieving – what would you do with that wish?
Get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell.
Do you find quotes inspire you? If so, please provide three quotes on the subject of personal inspiration.
What music inspires, motivateds and enthuses to get up and go for it, supply three song titles [and links if you wish] please.
I just posted three songs yesterday that pretty much do the same thing in Laura’s Weekly Song Challenge, so HERE is that post.
If you wanted something badly enough, would you pay to achieve it, or simply work damn hard to achieve it for yourself?
My philosophy is why do it yourself if you can afford to pay someone else to do it for you?
Please can you provide an image that inspires you to ‘go for gold’ when you are looking to achieve your goal?
Yada, yada, yada.
Finally, what goals, challenges or accomplishments have you enjoyed success with in the past, that make you feel ‘proud’ to have done so.
Finishing this post!
