Thirteen Goals

I decided to start posting my Thursday Thirteens on Wednesdays because I post in the evenings and by the time I get to it on Thursday, many people have already made the rounds. I could get up & do it before work on Thursdays, but knowing me that ain't likely to happen.
Anyway, I haven't finished my list of 100 goals, but I thought I'd share 13 of the goals I have on my list. These are goals I want to achieve and haven't yet accomplished. Maybe in a future 13, I'll write about 13 things I've already accomplished.

  1. publish a book
  2. publish academically
  3. visit the Holy Lands
  4. learn to play the harp
  5. learn sign language
  6. ride in a hot air balloon
  7. see the eagles at Starved Rock
  8. visit all 50 states
  9. sell my handmade books
  10. fly 1st class
  11. learn to play Heart & Soul on the piano
  12. write a column
  13. learn to draw

Nancy--goals are wonderful; they keep us headed in the right direction. Yours are diverse and interesting. Good luck with them.

Cool list. And I agree with Kay about goals keeping us on the path.

Happy TT!

I love your list. It has me thinking about making my own list as I've been thinking negatively about myself lately--and this is such a hopeful, positive outlook. Just thinking about the goals and possibilities brings a smile to my face.

Thanks for this.

omg, sign language is so much fun. I studied it for a while through a community college that also emphasized classes in Deaf culture and politics and history - so fascinating and enjoyable!

There are a lot of Deaf blogs out there that give a good taste of the latter, but not a lot of good websites for learning ASL - I mean there are plenty of vocabulary sites, but I've found very little that teaches grammar. Which is kind of important! :)

I can't wait to hear about the goals you've accomplished! Ooo... inspiration for a future Thirteen of my own :-D I think mine is about accomplishing goals in a way, this week - the goals of having fun and discovering and exploring my own interests.

Nice list! Great goals, especially because a lot of them could be very doable!

I've flown first class once. I didn't pay for it, I got "upgraded" for free because the airline was overbooked and they took pity on me! It was wonderful!

Happy TT!

Those are great things to strive for. Good luck!! Happy TT.

This is a neat list. I like your goals!

Sounds like some great goals! Oh...and flying first class -- very sweet! That's the only thing I've done on the list, and that's only because of a flight issue where they ended up bumping us up to first class. (It was a real blessing too, as we ended up having plane trouble and had to sit on the tarmac for THREE hours before leaving for a flight from Detroit to London. Thank goodness we had all that extra room!)

Good list. Write a little bit every day. Make yourself write even when you don't want to do so.

I always wanted to learn sign language, though I hope I never need to.

My TT is here.

Denise Patrick said...

Wonderful list. I've accomplished 1 and 11 (at least I can plunk it out) on your list. I hope you accomplish all of them.

Happy TT!

Love the list. What kind of harp? I've always been drawn to the celtic harp.

I recently finished Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber-- I love that in her book just the act of wishing changes people.
