Rachael's Goals

This post is not only a list of the goals I want to accomplish in my life. It is also a gateway to the numerous posts detailing the specifics of each goal and the progress, or lack thereof, towards each. Most, if not all, of the goals on this list can fit into three categories. The first is immediate goals that I should (and will!) be working on regularly. Things like exercise more, clean the apartment more, and read a greater variety of books belong to this category. Another category is long-term goals. Things like have kids and publish a book are years in the future, but I want to have them on the list anyway, if for no other reason than to remind me to keep doing the things I can do right now that will put me in a position where those can someday be realistic and immediate goals. The third kind of goal is somewhere in between the other two. Things like traveling and trying new things can happen at any time. They will happen whenever I want them to and work for them, essentially, but I cannot work on them all at the same time. My current plan is to pick one of these goals every few months and work actively towards it until it is accomplished.

I fully expect this list of goals to change. If for whatever reason I decide I no longer want to pursue a goal on the list, I will strike it through and mark it abandoned. I will explain on its progress page why I decided to abandon it. I will also strike through accomplished goals (and mark them accomplished) so it is easy to tell which goals are active and which are not.
