    Then there are some, who can't seem to feel energized enough to tackle a task....UNTIL.......it becomes a challenge. So, they let it fester, and fester, procrastinating, until it's the 11th hour, until a molehill becomes a mountain.

    And then, they climb.

    Tripping the stimulation threshold, basically.

    I guess it could count. It just became even more perplexing to me when I saw the physical challenge junkies.

    How do you feel when you do not have a goal?
    Are your goals always individual based or are they ever team based with other people?

    Like I'm not really living.

    Sleep feels better after you work hard. Food tastes great when you're hungry. People become so real when you're working with all aspects of them--not just the fun shallow times.
    I think people were sort of made for challenges. I mean.. When you start off, everything seems overwhelming.. but when you master even small concepts, you get happy about it. If you fail, you get upset. You really see aspects of yourself that you'll never see in your own comfort zone.

    And the great thing is.. you expand that comfort zone each time you push against the walls.

    I pretty much have never been without a goal, its been a question of whether or not its been conscious or not, as I've gotten older its become more conscious and I have found that the deliberate thinking out and planning of the goals has come to mean more.

    My most recent reflection upon it all, and a quote from the guy who wrote The Little Prince on facebook, has made me realise that a lot of my goals are actually wishes, that's what a goal without a plan, a real plan, with time scales for reviewing and changing it, is, just a wish.

    My goals arent all individual based at all, a lot of them are because I appreciate that I've control over myself, I dont have control over a lot of other things I would like to see change.

    Although the best personal development theorists I've seen acknowledge that you need to be socially interested, that your own goals are going to coincide with others.

    If you're asking if I'm in any team sports or anything like it, nope, I dont do anything like that, I'm not good enough to be honest.

    Challenges can be chances for us to rise up and triumph. They are fires that destroy the old and forge worlds anew.
    The universe may conspire against us, but with sufficient determination and force of will on our parts, we shall conquer it all!

    I am a "challenge junkie" in always taking on new projects, and finding something new to learn about or learn how to do. Anything from fixing my washing machine to designing a website to making Roman shades to playing a dulcimer.

But when I learn to love the process of the challenge as much as the victory at the finish line life gets much more enjoyable.
    This has to be one of my major life frustrations, and unfortunately, the older I get, the less the final victory makes up for the horrible process required to get there. I'm not talking about the real process, but the artificially, humanly imposed hoops that have nothing to do with ability and everything to do with permission.

    I am one of those people.

    I feel frustrated on a day that I have off and don't get anything done.

    It's like I can't relax or something. Must achieve at least 1 thing, if not many, per day.

    Yeah okay, let's put a limit to this though, it's not like changing a lightbulb or the tires of your car makes you a challenge junkie.

    That limit will vary from person to person. Anything that is an actual challenge to the specific person would count, because they are trying to push beyond what they are currently able to do. The first time I changed a tire, I actually felt rather proud of myself. I was alone at night in the middle of nowhere and just figured it out on my own. Granted, I didn't seek out the experience, but was glad to have had it since it is a useful skill.
