Inventory & List of Priorities (2)

October 18, 2009 · 6 comments

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:


  • iPhone
  • GPS
  • Digital Camera
  • Clothes (sundry; I’ll spare you the complete list)
  • Girl


  • 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.

Well, damn. :D I can see that I need 2 take lessons from you….I’m about to have to prioritize and figure out what I want in life, as well. Today, it’s too painful to make any long term goals, I’m still trying to achieve the goal of eating something. I know, in time, though, I really need to sit down and OBJECTIVELY figure out where I am going.

Thanks for the inspiration!! XO

Nice work. I begin to see the logic of how the “Have’s” support the “Do’s” and how some of the “Do’s” in turn provide a platform for “Gig.”

A real strength of what you’ve done here is the concise presentation of it. Life plans that are too complex often collapse under their own weight.

Let us know how it’s working out down the road.

I’ve been making these lists for sometime and never follow through, that is, until I put on the internet as a 40 before 40 list.

I have no doubt you’ll succeed at each and everyone of these things!

Good luck with all that Ted.

Hey Miragi I would love to take you out to eat anytime. Just say the word.
