Living Large, Gotta’ Get Goals.
Gitr tagged me.
After he was tagged in a post in a blog by Phil Gerbyshak.
From a meme being followed by a Greg Balanko-Dickson.
And that meme begun by Alex Shalman. (This is where you’ll find the rules.)
(I hope I kept that straight!)
Anyway, in short, I need to list and write about the top 5 to 10 goals that I “gotta’ get” so that I can truly say I have achieved my wildest dreams in life. These have to be my best, most exclusive, and over-the-top goals that I can pick off my goals list.
So, here goes:
1. Become a family man.
Well, I got married almost two years ago to a wonderful woman. So I’m off to a good start.
2. Go on safari. Ride in an open-top jeep through the wildlife of Kenya. Climb to the snowy peaks of Mt. Kilamanjaro in Tanzania. See Victoria Falls in Zambia.
I have been to the Sinai but have never set foot on the African continent. This would be in the something akin to being in the footsteps of the Victorian Age explorers ala the National Geographic Society of the bygone era.
3. Go on a long, slow, cruise. Round the world. West to east, and see Australia along the way.
I’ve been on cruises, the Inside Passage to Alaska, and the Caribbean, but this round the world trip would simply be like *living* an ocean goers life.
4. Live in a home, with my family, connected to the world, close to everything, yet private, with a view of mountains, forests, and ocean, and experience all the wonders of the changes of seasons. A stone wall with a fireplace. Heavy wood to last the ages. This would be in the Northwest, or the Northeast. Or Scotland. Who knows. Home is where the heart is, does it matter where it’s geographically at?
5. Financial security. I don’t want to worry, or be worried. I don’t need ten homes, or exclusive country club memberships. I just want to be comfortable, have the best for my family, and have us all be “Just fine.”
Towards that goal I’ve managed to do well at my career, I am relatively debt free, and I’ve invested heavily into our company’s 401K program.
This is a “pass it on” kind of thing. I’ll pass the baton now to three more bloggers who’ve shared.
