Sheryl Sisk Schelin over at The Inspired Solo
"tagged me." And we haven't even met before...but that's the joy of blogging right. Alex Shalman
created a meme - “Gotta Get Goals
” - and after Sheryl got tagged, she in turn passed the goodness to me and some others. Here are the instructions:In a new blog post, list and write about the top 5 to 10 goals that you gotta’ get so that you can truly say you have achieved your wildest dreams in life. These have to be your best, most exclusive, and over-the-top goals that you can pick off your goals list.
Here's my list...off-the-cuff (what's the terminology, including but not limited too and in no particular order):
1. Financial freedom
. Re-shape my mindset on this...I think I have too much of the "middle class" value phenomenum..."I need my benefits...make $50k to $100k and you're doing well." I need residual income and more people other than myself earning income for my businesses.
2. Be elected Governor of IL
. If you're in IL, tell me, I need your help and vote! I think I have a strong background and support base statewide. Plus I'm above corruption.
3. Earn a PHD in History
. I'm a history nut and would really like to have more professional research skills with an eye towards higher education going forward.
4. Be an Olympic Triathlete
. 2012 or 2016 in Chicago! Let's go.
5. Have a remote cabin on a body of water
. Not sure if this will be primary residence or secondary. But I hate having to drive somewhere to get to the "outdoors." I want to live there...being right across from the Des Plaines river doesn't quite cut it currently.
6. Create a charitable trust
. I want that consistent income set aside to support scholarships and Christian outreach.
7. Be trilingual
. At least Chinese and Spanish...I'm okay, but certainly not fluent yet.
8. Write a book
. This should be multiple books...one of my goals for 2007 is to have the first book outlined...that's in-process as we speak. See item #3.
