Blog Hop Question

Stitching the Night Away Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop  

Do you set stitching goals for yourself and how do you plan them out? (Weekly, monthly, annually?) What are your current stitching goals (if you don’t mind sharing)? In addition to setting goals for yourself, do you have a special reward that you reserve for when you reach a stitching goal?

I rarely ever publicly state goals. And when I do, I usually regret it. LOL

This doesn't mean I don't have goals. They are mostly floating around somewhere in the further reaches of my brain - sometimes just vague little thoughts like I'd like to get this done by such and such a meeting. Other times they are more concrete - like I need to get this done to enter it in Woodlawn and it needs to be at framers 6 weeks before the entry deadline. 
Right now I am going through my world goalless. I have one little thing that needs working on in the next 10 days. But beyond that I am free of deadlines both real and self-imposed. 

I am wondering if when working in a group and someone issues a challenge and you take up the challenge, does that mean it becomes a goal? Because under the right circumstances, I do seem to respond well to challenges.

No real goals = no real rewards.

Challenges definitely count as goals! And deserve rewards...usually at someone else's expense. ;)

Challenges certainly count toward goals. I go through phases... when I know I'm not going to have much stitching time I just feel defeated if I try to set even the smallest goal so I just wing it.

I think the whole point of having goals is to keep you motivated and stitching; if you are completing your projects and putting needles through thread, you probably don't need concrete goals anyway.
