Ten Hour Goal: 13,334 Coins before Midnight (See what time goal was met!)

Most of those who follow me know that I set myself all kinds of goals. I am not here to compete with anyone but myself.

I can easily get discouraged, when things do not go as I want them. The same happens when others do not get as excited as I get for my own goals.

That last one can be the bane of existence for the ENFP on the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator. We want people to get on the train with us! I am old enough to understand intellectually that these goals are my own. Thank goodness, I am also mature enough to not want to take my toys and run away when people do not want to play! emoticon :winking:

I am so close to reaching my $20.00 mark, and I am setting what I call a "burst goal"--giving myself a goal that will require just a quick burst of energy to meet it, requiring me to push just a little harder. It is often what long distance runners do when they are tiring; they will sprint for a short distance, just to give them that boost or burst to keep on going.

So, today's goal is to reach the 13,334 coin level in the next 10 hours: Goal time-- 23:59:59 Pacific Daylight Time on July 25th, 2015. Coins needed for goal: 107 in 10 hours.


  • 1515 13,251// 24 Coins earned in 1.25 hours. 83 to go in 8.75 hours.
  • 1600 13,257// 6 coins earned in .75 hours. 77 more in 8 hours to go.
  • 1915 13,293// 36 Coins earned in 3.25 hours. 41 more in 4.75 hours.
  • 2005 13,319// 26 Coins earned in 50 minutes. 15 more in <4 hours!

  • 2051 13,334// 7 coins earned in 26 minutes.

Eligible for $20.00 redemption payout on 7/25/2015 at 8:51 p.m. PDT!!

You're getting so close! Are you going to cash out as soon as you've reached the threshold or wait till your birthday?

That quick sprint that runners do when they're tired, how do they get the energy?

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 5:20 PM

I've mentioned in other articles my plans, which is to wait until the birthday. I have the stretch goal of 15K I want to see.

lexiconlover wrote on July 25, 2015, 5:23 PM

I knew that had been the plan prior, just didn't know if you had changed your mind.

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 5:43 PM

I usually go with the original plan, until such time it is necessary to change it. Right now, seems to be on track, but still a stretch!

CoralLevang wrote on July 25, 2015, 5:45 PM

Personally, I think it is a mental thing that isn't much different when we all get that surge. But with running, I haven't a clue. I am SO NOT A RUNNER!

I am glad to see that you are still keeping up with your goal!

I love that you're updating this post with your balance increases! Best of luck, my friend! For my part, I have several of your posts to catch up on & will endeavour to do so. Did I miss the one where you talked about the news from your family reunion?
