    Finally getting hired as a full time, paid firefighter... no one is hiring though, and I am done with this part time and reserve type work. The last test I went to had 800 people for 4 positions. ha!

    i've decided to push the envelope everywhere, i.e :
    technical riding (mtb)
    in gym
    in running,more racing , tackle another 1/2 marathon and aim for 1h30 , or less.
    xc skiing :do a few more big rides (30km and more )

    finally make myself learn and perform Rachmaninov 2nd sonata in its 1913 version.
    (i'm mentally preparing for that one )

    Well, the first goal is fitness related: I've dropped about 10 kg of fat and I'm trying to shake off the last 3-5. It might be that I've reached my natural weight, but I've promised myself I will have a visible six pack at least ONE time in my life... even if they're only visible for a day!

    The second goal is to take a sailing boat with friends around the islands off the coast of Croatia. (This from someone who had never been on a sailing boat before this summer.) Here in Germany, that involves earning three different sailing licenses and chalking up 300 nautical miles of practice.

    The last goal is to get through the second learner's manual for playing piano... with a teacher, thank goodness. Learning to play after 40 is an experience, let me tell you.

    lots of little goals in the next little bit, but the BIG one is to start writing my book in the next few weeks, and finish in the spring or summer.

    Right now mine is to successfully finish out the last 9 months of my Peace Corps service and have a campaign job set up and ready when I leave so I'll have something to do when I get back to the states. I also have a goal of getting much better on the banjo by the time I'm finished here in Armenia.

    My current big goal: 10 seems to be my number......
    Want to have increased my weight by 10 lbs by this time next year.
    (This year only packed on 5 lbs. icon_sad.gif )
    Want to have increased my investment value by 10% by this time next year.
    (This year saw only a 6 % gain. icon_mad.gif )
    Cheers,
    Keith

    Training for and completing Ironman Lake Placid with hours to spare before the cut off time.

    That one pretty much covers many other goals which will be accomplished during the training.

    Over the next two years I'm establishing a judo club in a challenged neighborhood. Local government funds are helping me getting started, cos they want healthy activities for kids instead of them getting into trouble.

    In time of course I want this project to produce strong judo players and national champions.

    To get my BSN...then on to world domination.


    MsclDrew...judging from your post on RJ; you may very well be too smart.

    Good luck...not that you need it.

    I would say my big goals (2 of them) are 1. to finally realize that after a 3 year string of horrible relationships that I can be content without someone. & 2. I finally need to effin stop changing my major and graduate already!
