Aspirations – July 2014

In 2011, I knocked up a list of aspirations for life. These varied from small things like attending the rugby through to long term plans.

Looking forward 3 years, it’s probably about time I updated that list.

Long Term Goals (5 years +)

  1. Earn enough to afford property, preferably sharing with someone I’m in love with.
  2. Write that Magnus Opus of mine. A book which will change the world!
  3. Learn a 2nd Language.
  4. Visit a few more countries of the world (New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, Hungary and a few others).
  5. Work out what the hell I’m doing with my life.

Short Term Goals

  1. Get in better shape, using the gym more regularly.
  2. Get better at Tag Rugby, with at least one team eventually winning their respective league.
  3. Referee more Tag Rugby matches, developing the relevant skills.
  4. Get a new job which I believe in and can/will do well.
  5. Spend more time working with worthwhile charities.
  6. Clear that massive pile of books on the far side of the room.
  7. Rejoin the Liberal Democrats & get back involved with the party.

And for the record, here’s that 2011 List.

  1. I’m going to learn more about & attend more matches for Harlequins RUFC
  2. By the time I’m 40, I’m going to be with a woman I love, and I’m going to have children.
  3. I’m going to write a book which will change the world, and how we look at it.
  4. In my future, I want to be working in an occupation where I feel I am actually putting something of practical benefit back into the world. Something which will outlive me, and something that is not money based.
  5. By the age of 35, I’m going to have learnt a foreign language fluently, and I’m going to have a greater understanding of the varieties of wine.
  6. I’m going to put effort into knowing and understanding more about the passions in my life. Mainly film, music, Philosophy, art, football, and the interests already mentioned.
  7. One day, I’m going to attend the Cannes Film Festival.
  8. I’ve read the “Communist Manifesto”. To understand the world better, I’m also going to read “Mein Kampf”, “The Koran”, “The Bible” and “The Wealth Of Nations”.
  9. On a lighter note, I want to play the perfect game of Pool. I’d like to break, pot every single of my balls, and pot the black, all without my opponent getting a shot.
  10. I’m going to feel like I’ve done everything I can do in life.Number 10, should never be fulfilled.
