Have you ever thought in the morning that, today i don't wanna wake-up because i don't have anything to do, or aim of. Staying in the bed on Sunday is fine, isn't it? :P
Everyday when we wake up, we have a hope, a new task to accomplish. Having hope or goal is fine, but to complete it is equally important. So its important, that you keep an account of goals you aim to hit, and keep checking in yourself, your performance. During years i have thought of doing so many things, learn to cook a specific dish, to read so many books in "these' number of days, to shed some weight :P:D, and many more things. But seldom i have been able to do them or achieve them...:( :(
The other day, i read in one the blogger buddies post, about 101 goals in 1001 days. When i googled (sorry Page & Brin, you should have also stated the past tense :P) about it, found it interesting. Its a kind of project, which inspires you to set the goals and achieve it. The link to project is here--
I have signed up and made a list of goals. This has been working for me as self-motivation tool. Tell me, how do you set and achieve the goals?
