My List

Let’s make a deal. Shall we?

Let’s make a deal to stop being mediocre. I’m kind over that. I’m over people not living up to their talents. It really is time to get things right. It’s always got to start with figuring out what you want.

So here’s my list:

Buy a house with a Garage
  • Ultimately end up in Farm House.
    • I’d like to have:
    • Chicken Co-op
    • Garden
Pay Off my Car
  • Ultimately end up with my car and a 4 Wheel Drive truck
    • I’d like to have:
    •  a quad (or two)
    • A bench seat truck from the 80’s or earlier.
To be in the best shape of my life.
  • Ultimately I want to do 10 pull ups and 25 push ups
    • I’d like to continue to run races and complete a half-marathon
 Quit my job
  • Ultimately I’d love to be a full-time crafter that reuses materials and creates awesome things
    •  I’d like to put my time and effort into something I’m passionate about.
I want to travel

  • Ultimately I’d love to go to Italy
    • I’d love to:
    • travel to Asia and South America
    • take a train across the U. S.
    • take a boat from Europe to NYC.
    • Go somewhere new every year.

 Financially Independent

  •  Ultimately I will never rely on a credit card
    • Car should be paid off by February of 2013
    • Student loan debt by 2015
    • Credit Card paid off by July 2012
    • Comfortable savings account
    •  Financial Freedom
As for my life, I want to live simply and have a great love.
  • Ultimately I want to live the life I have always dreamed of
    • I’d like to
    • inspire people to do the same
    •  never sacrifice who I am
    • never forget what I’ve gone through/where I'm from
This list will always be a work in progress. It’s supposed to be high-level but also achievable. It might not be this year, but this is my goal in life. This is my focus I’m going to stop settling and start working for what I want. I got into the habit of just walking meaninglessly through life. Times they are a changing.

It’s said that we are more likely to achieve our goals if we right them down. So here it is. These are my goals. In black and white. On the internet no less, which means they will always be somewhere. It’s up to me to reach these goals.

What’s on your list? Write it down. Make it happen.
Stop waiting to win the lottery.
Stop waiting for it to come to you.
Go out and do it.
Just Do It. 


Take it easy.
