Agency is the freedom to choose. You are free to CTR or CTW,
but you are not free to choose the consequences of your choices.
You make choices, and then you must live with those choices.

Make good choices and enjoy freedom and happiness.

Life Planning Goals Journal

100 Goals 

It was important to make some of these goals BIG. If we only set small goals, we will probably only achieve small goals.

  1. Find that special girl (yes, still single)
  2. Leave my job (without needing another!)
  3. Have kids
  4. Pay it forward with something big 3 times, like in the movie – but with things or services worth at least $10000
  5. Start a school that teaches kids how to live a successful life, teaches people skills, and teaches them to think for themselves; instead of to not take chances, and only how to be an employee of someone else’s successful life
  6. Help someone else earn enough money to no longer need a job
  7. Get to the point of earning $1 million a year (in 2012 dollars!!)
  8. Mentor someone into helping someone else get their time back (leave their job)
  9. Help someone through a difficult situation in their life
  10. Get a cottage out in the woods by a lake. Have a zip line or Tarzan rope over the water
  11. Write a book (will probably be a mix of both freedom and leadership principles, with some economics of course)
  12. Influence politics enough to reverse the state of decline in my country – start giving freedoms back instead of taking them away, start raising our standard of living instead of forcing its decline.
  13. Own my dream house (haven’t decided all the attributes yet…)

So there you have it. I can promise you one thing about this list. As time goes on, I’m sure some of these will change as somethings become more important to me than others.. for example, when I have kids, I’m sure I’ll add bringing them to Disneyland on this list. And when I accomplish #1, It will be more important for me to do things with her, that she wants to accomplish. When you make your list, don’t be afraid to make some changes. And never let everything on your list be accomplished. What I mean by that is, as you start accomplishing things, cross it off and add something else on your list to strive for; always have something to look forward to over the next horizon!
I hope this encourages you to start a list of your own if you haven’t already done so, and maybe even give you some ideas. Do you have anything crazy I didn’t include here? let me know, maybe I’ll change the list sooner than I thought!
