Only 250 Coins to Go

With only 250 coins to go, it is quite feasible that I could reach the 13,334 coins needed to my first pay out by tomorrow, though Sunday is more likely. That will be 15 days ahead of the first goal I set for payout by my 60th birthday.

This past week, I have earned fewer than 50 coins in several 24-hour periods, because I have not had the time and energy to devote to my writing or my Persona Paper goals, which I set for my birthday. Yet, I am still in the running for reaching the stretch goal of 15K coins by 11:59 p.m. on August 10th.

I do not have the energy today to spend eight hours going through every notification I have missed in three days. I have gone through a few, but I need to find a bit more balance today.

If, however, I should get a boost of energy, I would set a goal to make those 250 coins in 24 hours. Talk about a stretch! I think I have achieved about 130 coins in one day.

I wonder...will I be able to reach 13,300 coins in 24 hours? Only time will tell.

Now I knew you could do this. I told you so. You are ahead of your goal. I wish I had that drive.

I've done my part to help you achieve it! emoticon :smile: Good luck in getting there quickly, and congratulations!!

When I look and see only 12 coins difference in 4 1/2 hours, I am not sure I would call that "drive." But I accept the vote of confidence.

&AbbyG I understand. I get discouraged sometimes. The interaction is important to me, and when I find myself doing something and others don't want to, like I used to find with my sales team, I used to get resentful and discouraged. There was a goal, there was a team prize, and of 25 people, maybe 3 or 4 others would really work for the goal. One year, 1992, my team sold $276K worth of product. I sold nearly $200K of it by myself. I don't mind working hard, and I will lead the pack, but that was testament to me that those are my wants. Learning how to work that into my everyday life has been challenging, because I am such a collaborative person.

That is very good that you are near the pay out and that you had set goals for yourself.

Sounds like you have talked yourself int trying. If so I wish you luck and am sure you can do it. All the catching up will help a lot

Thank, Lea. emoticon :smile:

Thanks Audrey. I still have a few more weeks of being in my 50s. Let's not rush it! LOL

CoralLevang wrote on July 24, 2015, 10:12 PM

I am catching up with the last few hours; not sure I want to go back the 3days in the notifications. That was a tough day catching up a couple of weeks ago! LOL

Wow! You've obviously been really diligent here on PP. Congratulations!

The fact that you will undoubtedly surpass your goal by at least two weeks is something to be proud of! Great job!

You are one hard worker on Persona Paper! I hope you reach payout by Sunday and 15K by August 10.

If you decide to go for that goal, then I know you will achieve it, however, health and rest are also important goals. emoticon :smile:

If I write them, I will view them, earning you two coins per. emoticon :smile:

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 11:14 AM

Just want to keep moving in the forward direction! Thanks!

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 11:15 AM

Cheri Thanks! I am not going to redeem until the 10th, but happy to know that I can in the next day or so, if I wanted to!

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 11:16 AM

AliCanary Thanks. I am glad to have the first goal made. I never expected it could come this much earlier. emoticon :smile:

Thank you, Paulie

paperdaisyflower7 I am often depressed. One thing I have figured out for me is that when I am depressed, I need to set some sort of plan in action to divert my attention to an action, instead of thinking about something that brings me to my inside darkness. So, I start by saying, "I wonder if I can earn 'x' in one 24-hour period." Then, looking at my time, ask myself how, and put something into action. That's all. Nothing huge, just consistent. If my number was 100, and I come up with only 35, then I set 50 for day 2, so I have to reach, but not fail 2 days in a row. If I hit 50 sooner than I thought I would do for the day, and have the time, I'll push it ahead a bit. Etc.

Hugs for you. I hope you can come out of the darkness soon. I'll be here to greet you.

Six months ago, I was at barely anything. I just decided to start paying attention to others and commenting and then writing a bit more. Thank you.

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 11:26 AM

Well, I'm a half hour from the 13,300 goal, and wondering and currently at 13,182. So, didn't make that, but I'm closer than I was when I wrote the last time. And I did get rest/sleep last night. emoticon :smile:

Ruby3881 wrote on July 25, 2015, 10:36 PM

From 130 coins in a day to 250 is a pretty big stretch! And you do depend on other users to earn those coins. I'd love to hear that you did it, though!

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 11:14 PM

Thanks. I love that we are all interacting more. There seems to be a core of us. I think it's time to get this party started!!!

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 11:15 PM

Right around the corner, Ruby3881 !!
