Other people's goals

Joe's Goals has a section called "Get inspired". Among other things, it shows a "cloud" of the most popular goals of the last seven days. Below are just the top "negative" goals in that cloud (you can assign negative points to goals like these):

alcohol
bed after midnight
caffeine
cigarettes
drink soda
eat out
fast food
late to work
procrastinate

Some of the top positive goals in this cloud:

eat breakfast (never a problem for me!)
bring lunch
brush teeth
cardio
eat fruit
eat healthy
exercise
get up early
housework
journal
make bed
meditate
take vitamins
write

I for one take some comfort in knowing my vices are shared by many others, and my efforts at improvement are also shared. Many of us struggle to do the same things. I am going to add "blog in happiness journal" one of my goals for every day.

Oh my goodness! What a thrill it was to find this blog! I can't tell you how pleased I am that you found inspiration in the Happiness Project. I'm going to post about this tomorrow...I'm so looking forward to reading this each morning.

Good luck with your project! May we both have a million readers and live happily ever after! Gretchen

Great! I think having more readers will help keep us on track.
