Lifetime Goals - my progress so far

2000ft over Cambridge, England
About 10 years ago I set myself 5 specific goals that I would like to complete within my lifetime. I don't know why I felt the need to do this, maybe it was middle-age?

However, this is the list...

  1. To become a pilot (of aeroplanes)
  2. To learn another language
  3. To obtain a martial art Black Belt
  4. To learn to play guitar
  5. To have a book published
To date, I have achieved the following...
  1. achieved
  2. 40% achieved 
  3. 90% achieved
  4. totally bombed (time-wise, something had to give! #theresalwaysretirement)
  5. I am very, very close to achieving this
How about you? Ever set yourself lifetime goals? If not, why don't you do it now?


  1. Wandering around cyberspace instead of finishing editing...

    Lifetime goals? Is that anything like the "Bucket List"?

    Wrote down fifty things I wanted to do before kicking the bucket, lost the list, and now E-D-I-T-ing.

    Congrats on slaying that dragon (publishing). Stick with it and you will soon be a knight in shining armour.

    1. Hi Lucinda. Yes, I guess it is a Bucket List, although I have never used that term before (not common here in Spain).
      You wrote down 50 things to do!! That's ambitious, I came up with a do-able 5.

      Maybe you should recall the 5 most important goals and write them down again, but don't interrupt the editing of course!

      I intend to stick with this writing/publishing lark, it is so me. I'm polishing up the armour as we speak!

      Thanks for popping by and commenting!


Thank you!
