As far as your suggestion, this is really tailored to my style. Everything needs goals and steps and ways to handle it. And, as far as the 1000 opinions, totally true. But of course I can pick and choose. The reason I ask strangers is that it's nice to get different perspectives rather than people who know me who are just going to blow my head up with compliments and then eventually i'd be back to where I started.
I actually started a private journal, something I haven't done in a while, with monthly goals and stuff to do that month to make me better, happier, whatever. Sounds nerdy but I predict it will work. Need something tangible to look at.
