Kind of a tie between b and c. My motto is don't make a plan, just wing it. Think about it, but don't plan it out. It's gotten me this far, and every time I try to plan, I fail miserably, so... But in the end I chose c, because you can want to achieve something, just don't make any elaborate schemes to pull it off.

I aim big, but I set specific little goals that will help me to get to the big one. Like instead of going all crazy like "HEY IM GONNA IMPROVE SO MUCH THIS YEAR IM GONNA DRAW LIKE A PRO AND EVERYONE WILL LOVE ME" I make one thing at a time "so now im gonna focus on anatomy, in about a month or so I'll start painting landscapes and studying composition, maybe when I feel like it I could try new painting techniques etc"
Wheeew!!! Aim big! People who call you overachiever are jealous that they don't have the willpower to go the extra mile. Always aim above your record; otherwise, how will you improve? How's that for some food of thought?
It sort of varies, really. Or, I suppose it's a bit of both.
Overall I have a few large, lifelong goals I wish to reach. Things like getting a Master's Degree, moving to Korea, becoming fluent in a minimum of 3 foreign languages, and a couple more. These are things that won't happen soon, but require a long period of preparation and planning in order to attain. If I want to get these things out of my life, then I have no choice but to start thinking about them now. They're not things I stress about though, since it will be several years before things culminate to the point I'm ready to approach these things seriously. I just have to keep them in mind when I make plans in current time.
On a day to day basis, my goals stay small. Usually short term goals, like studying properly for my college exams, learning a certain number of new Kanji per week, mastering a new crochet pattern, or other things of that ilk. I try not to go too big, since I know if I start big I'll get intimidated and never get started on anything, much less actually hope to ever accomplish my goals.
Big plans are for long spans of time. Small plans are for everyday life.
I tend to aim big. Super big! Somtimes unrealistically big. But knowing full well i might not achieve it (due to motivation or preoccupation) , so at the end even if i didnt get there a 100% at least i mightve reached 70%. Now if i aimed small, i probably wouldve STILL reached 70% knowing my personality. SO now with these two results in comparison.. Of cos i would aim big because the big 70% is 10 times bigger than the smaller goal's 70%. So A=XY-AC2/AXY=MC2. If my calculation is correct if i aim big i would achieve more in return.
