I was tagged for this goal meme by Eduardo Peirano over on his Onlinesapiens blog. It is a pretty interesting meme – and I had some fun reading different people’s goals. The premise is to list “your best, most exclusive, and over-the-top goals.” Well, I have a confession to make – which will most likely go against every tenet that is set down for professional and personal development – I don’t really do goals. I live very day to day. If I’m unhappy with something, I work to change it (and yes, this may involve setting a goal for myself). These goals change constantly depending on where I am or what I am doing in life. This meant that I really had to think about what I would consider to be my most important, until now unspoken, goals.
- Finish library school – This goal is almost the entirety of my life right now. I need, I want to be done!!!!!
- Take better care of myself – Given that library school has taken over my life, I have little time for exercise, personal down time and relaxation. This needs to change. I’m feeling very fat and lazy of late – and this plays havoc with my mental state.
- Travel more – There are so many fascinating places on this planet – and I would love to see them more. High on my list of priorities would be to see the pyramids in Egypt and tour the ancient ruins, relics, etc. in Greece. I’ve been to London twice – and would find it sad to never go back. However, I loved both Paris and Venice. I’m going to Las Vegas in early June – and have high hopes for that experience (especially since I’m definitely going to see the Grand Canyon).
- Be happy – This is what I live for. Happiness is the key to everything for me. This is my most important goal.
Again, I won’t tag anyone because I guess although not a goal, it is a rule I live by. However, I’d love to know what your goals are.
