GoDaddy.com released a new survey yesterday on the most common “life goals” people have, but haven’t accomplished yet.
Overall, 76% of people said they haven’t made as much progress in their professional and personal lives as they’d like. And 66% said they currently feel stuck in a rut. Here are the five things people WISH they’d accomplished by now.
- Starting your own business. It was the most popular answer overall.
- Going back to school.
- Taking a job outside the state or country you live in. Obviously you have to leave your friends and family behind to do it, so it’s risky.
- Telling someone off. Which is weird, because does that really qualify as a “LIFE GOAL”? (???)
- Traveling alone.
The other popular answers were proposing to someone . . . trying an extreme sport . . . and writing a book. And the top reasons people gave for NOT accomplishing their goals yet were money . . . not knowing how to start . . . lacking confidence . . . and not being able to get motivated.
