So I was thinking about this and wondering what people have as their goals, surely it helps you keep motivated.
My goal is to reach 1800 rating at the end of this year, it's a big one but I know I can do it.
(Started playing 20th December 2006, current rating: 1400)
Also I want to beat all the chess players at my school and prove that their "10 year experiance" doesn't make them better than me.
I love the competition chess provides, the rating system spices that up too, the goals keep me motivated.
So what are your goals?
