Goals are important

A Canadian friend of mine recently moved to Atlanta to work as a web something-or-other at a company that makes slot machines. He has to make five goals for the year that somehow concern his job. I thought I'd give him a hand.

Goal 1- Improve water cooler chat

Goal 2 - Become compulsive gambler so as to better understand end customer

Goal 3 - Stop having syrup for breakfast so as to avoid having to replace keyboard every month due to stickiness

Goal 4 - Affect "Pimp Limp" so as to better fit into new surroundings and therefore be happier and more productive

Goal 5 - Read Zombies for Zombies so that after the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse you will be able to easily adjust to new cravings and lost appendages and continue to be a productive employee.

If you run into a similar problem, I'll be happy to help you make new goals.

I need goals, i get asked a lot where i want to be in 5 years. Now that i can answer easily, but i dont think its good for my career to tell my boss that in 5 years i see myself as a top phtoographer travelling america or australia in a teardrop caravan when i work for an engineering company in london UK.

Hah, pimp limp!

I was never able to get past the maple goal. I have an automatic keyboard order once per month from Amazon. It's like a keyboard of the month club.
