As I look through this sub-forum and other Minecraft Achievement forums, I see people complaining about the new achievements. They say they're too easy, some say they don't like Minecraft having goals, and others think that it makes people too competitive while playing Minecraft.
Yes, some may be easy. It's not like Mojang isn't going to add any more achievements for 5 months! They will try to add more achievements as time passes, so you won't get bored quickly, and anyway... achievements aren't the focus of the game. Sure, at a later date there may be thousands of achievements all for doing one small task, (get dirt, get sand, get stone) but for now they're just a thing that they have added in that they can update with new achievemnts every so often. When the achievements get to something like "Build a tower of obsidian from bedrock to the sky void" will you be saying they're too easy?
GOALS IN MINECRAFT
Minecraft had goals before achievements. Not set goals, but personal goals. Say you wanted to build a house out of diamonds? That's a goal. Just because there are set tasks for you doesn't mean they're forcing you to do them. Personally, I like having goals in Minecraft because if I'm bored I can work towards an achievement a bit more. You aren't being forced to do anything. They are just something that you CAN do, not what you HAVE to do.
People have different views on life. Some people like to accomplish a task set by someone else, others like to be more creative and do what they like. Just because people are more inclined to accomplish a task then you are doesn't mean they are being 'too competitive' and not playing the game as it should be played. They simply like achievements in Minecraft and enjoy having the Achievement Completed box pop up telling them they have accomplished something.

Imagination is for turbo-nerds who can't handle how kick-butt reality is.
They should make a topic where you can create your own achievements...
So someone could create there own achievements and then upload them so other people can try get them.Diamonds for people who make this
Im all for them, they just need to add a bizzton more, a lot of specific ones and than lot's of 'have dug 1000 dirt blocks' stuff. As I've heard before they do kind of work as a tutorial for people who have never seen much of minecraft before, so simplicity in the earlier stages of the branches I'm all for
