Goals for Myself

Having goals is an important part of my life. I always want to be working toward accomplishing something in my life, otherwise I personally don't see the point. I have accomplished some big goals in my life so far such as buying a house, graduating from college, and having a full time job. I think sometimes life gets so busy just keeping up with day-to-day responsibilities, that it is easy to push of setting and achieving goals. For the last couple of years, whenever I would think of something I want to do in life, I would add it to an on-going note in my Blackberry. Some of these are easy things, others may take a life time to achieve. I thought I would share that list here. In no order:

Learn how to play chess.
Design and sew my own suit.
Bake a pumpkin pie using real pumpkins, not the canned pumpkin.
Sit as a Board of Directors for an important, nonprofit organization.
Attend a Bear's game at Soldier Field in the dead of winter.
Make spaghetti sauce from scratch using tomatoes from our garden.
Take ballroom dance lessons.
Adopt a habitat at the humane society.
See all 30 major league baseball parks.
Obtain a Masters degree.
Go to Disney World on Christmas Day

That is all I have for now.  I'm sure there are others I am not thinking of.  But I posted this blog in a page tab at the top of the blog so I have a place to add more goals and cross them off as they are achieved!


  1. Wow! You have some GOALS! They make mine look pitiful. Mine are things like "Go a whole day w/o feeling tired." "Survive teaching highschool to my son" "Survive RAISING my son!" and my biggie "Lose 50 lbs".

    My 2 big Wishes are to go on a Charles Stanley Cruise to Alaska and to own a nice camera like a Canon Rebel or such. But those are wishes and since we're always broke, I'm not getting my hopes up.

  2. Another job well done cyster!

  3. thats funny because learn to play chess and the pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin are also on my list of things I'd like to accomplish.
