Setting My Goal for the Next $20
It has been just over a week since I reached the goal of 15K coins that I set for myself. Now that I have submitted and received my first payout of 20 dollars, and the bank has been adjusted, I feel as if I am in a bit of a crux without having set a new goal.
As of this writing, I am sitting on 2382 coins, 17 percent of the payout total with $3.57 in the bank.
Just as I felt a bit of a "let down" the day after a performance, a race, or sales challenge, there is a moment when I realized that it is going to be a challenge to complete the next one. However, I have done it once, so I know I have what it takes to do it again. I have taken a week off without thinking of coins and goals. Now, it is time to start thinking of what is next.
I like the idea of the 100-coins-a-day average. It seems steady. There will be days where there are more or fewer, but it is reasonable, given what I feel capable of doing. I also am drawn to the 15K figure and 3 to 5 articles a day average.
With 2382 coins, I need 12,618 coins to reach my goal. That will take 126 days at the 100-per-day average. The target date will be December 20th.
So, my general goal will be to reach 15K coins by Christmas, so that I can redeem and be paid my next $20 before the New Year. That is roughly four months, half the time it took me to reach it from the same starting point in January.
Let the climb begin, once again!
