Gotta’ get goals

May 1, 2007 at 7:36 am 7 comments

I have been tagged by Diogenes at Quasi Fictional to talk about goals. Visit Alex Shalman’s blog, where this meme originated, to read the complete rules.

Goals are a challenge for me, I won’t deny it. Not so much having them. I do, internally. But I don’t often have cause to discuss them or put them in writing. So here are a few that come to mind:

A day-to-day goal, that is harder than it sounds sometimes: choose to have a positive outlook and really live each moment, taking nothing for granted.

Achieve fluency in a second language. This is part of a larger goal to be a lifelong learner.

Guide my sons wisely to help them become responsible, ethical, independent thinkers who will stride confidently into their future.

Find an appropriate balance between planning for the future and enjoying the present.

Get to know much more of our world and its people through study and travel.

Make a positive difference in the lives of others, looking for opportunities to do so whenever possible.

I’d like to tag the following bloggers, specifically, but if the topic interests you, please feel free to participate whether I’ve tagged you or not.

    i no longer do memes on my site but I’ll address the issue of goals here.

    I used to live and die by goals. i was goal-driven. so much so that I often lived so much in the future that I missed the present. my only goal now is to enjoy the moment i’m in cause it’s all i’ve really got anyway.
