Final Results: 4 1/2 Day Challenge Ending June 30th

As it were, I did not have much of June 30th to write, read or comment. I am glad that I was nearly done at 7:00 p.m. PDT on June 29th, when I submitted my third update . I needed only five articles to submit, and I had reached 10,472 coins toward my One Hundred a Day? Are You Crazy? g oal .

So, a final recap of the June goal, and where I sat at midnight PDT:

  • Initial goal: Write 25 articles in 4 1/2 days and increase bank from 10,000 to 10,400 coins
  • Final results: All articles written in 3 3/4 days, and increased bank to 10,588 coins (Value: $15.88).
  • Average coins earned daily: 130
  • Average written daily: Approx. 6

So, the original birthday goal was to reach 13,334 coins by my milestone birthday, which means there are 2746 coins to go in 41 days. It averages to 67 coins per day, so if I strive toward the 100 coins a day, I should have no problem reaching and/or exceeding my goal. It gives me the breathing room for those days I am unable to write due to work or other appointments.

However, I want to give a big stretch, as I update my birthday goal for August 10th: (Drum roll, please)

15,000 Coins

If I can write an average of 5 per day, then I think this will be doable. So, what it will require me (or any of us with a goal such as this) to do is:

  • Write daily
  • Comment/interact with others on their writing
  • Stay focused and not stress out

Thanks to all who helped me to reach this past goal. Let us all do what we can to help one another, and in turn we will all reach those goals which matter most. to us.

(Note from author: To all who have expressed their support and love, thoughts and prayers. I will update tomorrow on what happened. It is 3 a.m. and I need to get some sleep! But here's a hint: We can breathe!)

Thank you, Shellyann36 ! If I can think of them 100 to 400 coins at a time, it doesn't seen so daunting.

Good way to look at the task! Keep it in a smaller frame so that if you don't succeed it will not be a big let down.

Nice work! That's a good idea to break it down and challenge yourself by creating goals.
