Describe one thing you'd like to achieve by this time next year. Why is this important to you?
I would like to have something (academic) published. I want to continue down this academic path, even though I'm still uncertain whether or not it is really what I want, and publication seems like the next step.
I want to get back in touch with my inner child. I want to learn how to "play" again. I want to temper my serious, responsible nature with more fun and laughter. It is important to me because I want very much to create wonderful memories for my children to carry into adulthood so that my legacy is not just that of making sure they are handling their chores and responsibilities.
I would like my living situation to be different. I spend too much time dealing with various roommate issues and dramas and would like to use that time in a more productive way. I would also like to have moved in with my partner by this time next year.
I'd like to get more than 4 hours sleep at a time. :) Because then I'll know my daughter is sleeping well, and well, I'll be sleeping well.
I want to take my company to the next level from its infancy. I want to sell a reliable product to customers who really need them. I want to have a streamlined income from the company, for me to fulfill the long due expectations of my parents. With sufficient money in hand, I could keep my wife and parents happy and do them whatever they want.
I'd like to find the "middle" more, particularly with trying to strike a work/life balance. It's so important - I'm often so intensely invested in achieving, I miss the life around me - including the enjoyment. What a waste.
Make art. Have a creative life outside of my house.
I'd like to be able to see the benefits of therapy. This is important to me because it will have meant that I have stuck through it and not quit. I want to have experience therapy positively and grown because of this.
I would like to have graduated by this time next year. Although I no longer feel intense shame at taking an extra year at college, that is all I want to take. I need to begin my adult life and move away from my traditional education.
I would like to have a plan in place to further my career/education. I had applied to my school of choice and was rejected, and I let it throw me off course. I know some things can't be planned, but know that I need units to move up on the pay scale and want to be ready for whatever opportunities come my way.
I would really like to have all my credit cards paid off, but that is probably more than a year off.
