Check it as I continue to wreck it.
I reorganized my list into groups of things that are like each other. And then I did it again. What I came up with were three main ideas: things I want to do, things I want to do, things I want to have and “Gig”. Here’s the breakdown:
- Digital Camera
- Clothes (sundry; I’ll spare you the complete list)
- 3500 Club winter patch
- Adirondack 46ers patch
- Book (write one)
- MAT (Miller Analogies Test)
- Bass/pushups (daily stuff)
- Bar Exam (see Gig)
- Social Media (part time?)
- Writing (part time?)
- Attorney – solo practitioner
- Teaching (PhD/Professorial – graduate/undergrad)
So that’s it for this step. All of the foregoing was done with pen and paper, and I went through a few drafts of each. The above is a much cleaner version of what I’m actually working with; it’s also a lot less detailed.
In between this step and the next one (#3, prioritization), I’ve been doing a bit of research on what each of these goals will require of me – whether it be monetary, temporal or emotional. This is something I need to do in order to set my goals and prioritize them. Some will be relatively easily attainable, and others will require significant monetary, temporal and/or emotional investments on my part.
