    Default What are your concrete goals in life?

    Simple enough questions. "Being happy" is an example of an abstract (not concrete) goal. What are the things you are fighting for?

    What motivates you, to move forward and makes you know you are even moving forward?

    I have some hobbies that have goals connected to them. For example, cycling - I'd like to finish in the top-10 in some races. Mountain climbing - I'd like to reach the top of some mountains around. Then there's more "professional" goals - I eventually plan to take the exam to become an actuary, which would allow me to travel a bit around europe while keeping a flexible schedule / having free time & earning a sufficiently good amount of money.

    I want to reach the age of 85 and then kick somebody's ass after having 3 children and swimming thousands of miles. All at once.

    I want to live my whole life in a waking trance.

    At the moment I tend to be in one or the other, but every now and then I experience both at the same time, and it is perfectly delightful.

    I am learning, though, that in order to survive I had to suppress the trance side of the waking trance. And naturally the trance side is a bit angry at my waking side. But when they get together, they enjoy one another so much, we will probably be able to work out our differences.

    Of course the template of the waking trance is the hypnogogic state that we all experience twice a day as we fall asleep at night and as we wake in the morning.

    And the waking trance is simply an elaboration of the hypnogogic state we all experience twice a day.

    You might say it is the perfect marriage of being awake and being asleep, both at the same time.

    I want to live near enough to the beach to go there frequently and also to get involved in environmental preservation.

    I see my future in preservation - whether environmental or historic, whether as my career or as volunteer work. It's something that would give me a sense of doing something meaningful with my life.

    I would like to get married and/or have a committed life partner.

    ummm...I want to learn photography and maybe take some painting classes

    I have no concrete goals, just go along and hope some doors open in my favour. So far so good.

    I don't know i am going forward other than the laughter lines around my eyes becoming deeper. Lol

    I dont want to loose to wonder in life. We are living in a cruel, irrational, selfish world sometimes but I never want to loose to wonder. I want to sit at a window at age 80 and wonder about the marvel that is the geometric form of a snowflake, tho I did that for the last 80 winters every year. Life wont break me, I'll just run away
