These are some of the life goals I want to accomplish in the next foreseeable future. Some of them are higher priority than others but because I listed them as I thought of them, there is no particular order. I will update this from time to time if I finish one or if I come up with another goal. I like to have set goals even if I don’t accomplish all of them because it gives me a direction to take my life be it week by week, month by month or year by year.
