Default Short Term Goals & Long Term Goals

I've been lucky enough to reach a few goals that I've set for myself in the past, but I have also failed quite a few times. I think it's time for me to set some new goals and do my best to stick to them. I have some financial goals, but I can't reach them if I continue abusing drugs and alcohol.....as well as wasting money on strippers, escorts, and Asian massage parlors. So I need to work on eliminating some of my guilty pleasures. This is going to be extremely hard for me, but I know I can do it.

My first goal is to make sure I post in this thread every single day to keep track of my progress.

If you have any goals you would like to post in this thread and keep track of please feel free to do so. I think it could be very helpful.

I'm going to make it a goal to eventually stop posting on forums like insidehoops, because everyone here is a beta with issues.

it's the lowest form of my personality, but it's really amusing here.

I'm already having those familiar urges. Maybe I'll hook up my 360 and play it

I'm in the same boat but it's not something I am going to force.

I have a lot of free time right now and ISH is the best forum I've ever been a part of because of how they allow people to be the most intense, wacked out, crazy versions of themselves.

A lot of characters on here and the moderators for the most part let a lot of shit go when they realize it will provide lulz and they typically aren't out to get anyone

Plus college semesters are done during this time and part-time jobs are the only ones available.

Sounds like one of your short term goals should be to create a long term goal.

Ok, so I made it through the night without any slip ups. I looked through some ads online today, but I didn't pull the trigger. So far so good

I need to stay away from those sites though. One day at a time

Short term - get a work placement and be successful/valuable enough for them to offer me the job when I graduate

Long term - to have my own house by the time I'm 25. Not a flat or apartment, an actual house. I'm 19 and a half now.

I have to be careful of what shows I watch. I just watched a few episodes of Californication and it really increased my urges.

The only things I really push for are financial/study goals and fitness goals.

Fitness has been a big part in helping me with my discipline for everything else. I think a lot of people would benefit greatly from taking fitness more seriously and having principles from there that crossover to real world problems guide them and teach them how to handle things better.

This is very good advice man, thanks

I want to eliminate fast food from my diet, but I have a hard time sticking to it for obvious reasons.

Default Re: Short Term Goals & Long Term Goals

think why before you do something next time.

you have to be confident in your ability to stop.
any past experience of walking away from something helps.

That's easier said than done. For the most part I do think before I do stuff, but most of the time the evil part of me is doing all the thinking. The evil outweighs the good in me in those areas.....I have to figure out some kind of way to reverse that.

try thinking about how you want tomorrow to be different than today before you go to bed. since you can now recognize the "evil part" of you doing all the thinking.

if you know what your routine is tomorrow, visualize it, substitute your time with something else where you want to see yourself with change.
