Ever since I was a teenager forced to take a “Career and Life Management” (CALM) class I have focused on setting goals by creating a list of 50 things I want to do before I die.
Essentially, it is just a list of my current dreams, goals, and life objectives. I post it in my room and office and try to look at it as often as possible, reminding me of all those things that I’m working towards. It’s too easy to get caught up in a routine or let daily life dictate how I live my life, and I find that by setting goals in writing I am better able to manage my life to reach them. Every few years I like to revisit my goals, add new items to replace those I’ve completed, and ensure my goals are still relevant to my ever-changing world view.
