Exactly six months ago on November 16th, on a whim I started a Make-A-Goal Experiment. I wanted to encourage people to set a six-month goal for themselves, and follow through with tracking it for six months. I even promised a prize for those that checked in half-way through and at the end of 6-months.
People who made a goal by the 1st prize deadline: 100+
People who checked in at the half way mark: 30+
People who checked in at the end: ???
As I mentioned before, the prize will be a chance at a new, sealed 1 GB iPod Shuffle. Right now the odds are something like 1 in 2, so get your updates in by leaving a comment here with your goal progress! Remember, it’s okay if you didn’t reach the goal, just say how well you did and maybe add an explanation. The deadline is Friday, May 18th, and I’ll figure out the winner over the weekend.
Our Own Goal Update
We reached our goal of reaching $50,000 in cash (saving $12,000 more) in April. We’ll probably reward ourselves with some sort of sugary dessert. Time to set another goal!
