Reaching for Success

Firstly, I would like to thank all of you for the part that you play in helping me to reach my goals. I was able to reach my goal of reaching payout minimum of 13,334 coins (20 dollars/100 percent) sometime between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. on 7 November, which was three days earlier than what I set up on the first of the month, and nearly three weeks earlier than I had anticipated the first of October.

Upon reaching the minimum required at the end of July this year, I continued to accumulate coins until I reached 15K, which I did on August 8th. I redeemed on my August 10th birthday with just over that, so once the 20 dollar payment was processed, I was not starting out with zero, but the difference between my total after subtracting the 13,334.

In August, I set my goal of reaching my second payment minimum by Christmas. By September, it was Thanksgiving. By October, I changed my goals again to reflect earlier dates for both payout minimum and 15K goal--November 15th and 25th. By November 1st, there was another change--November 10th and 22nd. I am not changing it again.

I took a full day off from writing yesterday, so this will be my first post in 45 hours. On the 7th, 157 coins were added. Yesterday, 29 coins.

If I am to reach my goal of 15K by the 22nd, then I will have to get on here, without taking time off, to meet the 15K challenge I set for self. It will be a challenge, with my upcoming trip to Tampa on business.

Though I may not see it by Thanksgiving, I will continue to strive, but I will always continue to reach for the stars.

Coins: 13416, shooting for 15000

You can add two more coins to your total now that I've viewed this post. I am confident you can reach your stretch goal.

Congratulations on meeting the first of your goals. If you post and interact during your trip, you should meet your second goal.

Paulie If I cannot do so because of my schedule, then I will have a hard time. But thank you for your support.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to try and earn as much as you can before you leave for your trip.

Well I am sure you would definitely reach your goal in time.Best of luck CoralLevang !

*laughs* Would you expect anything less? emoticon :winking: I am just not going to kill myself with the 401 coins in a day like I did last month.

Paulie wrote on November 12, 2015, 1:35 AM

I could never do 150 in a day. I'd be a nervous wreck if I tried for big numbers in front of a computer all day.

CoralLevang wrote on November 12, 2015, 1:41 AM

I am not really "trying for the numbers," as much as I am just doing what I consider my work for the day.
For it's about how I think about it.

I see I never commented on this post, but better late than never. You have done very well in reaching your stretch goals so far. Long may it continue.
