Inspired by my former co-worker, Jeff, and his recent post about having career/life goals (tl;dr: you can have a five-year plan, but also need to be flexible enough to seize opportunities).
I’ve never really had a five-year plan. Or any sort of plan, actually. Just a bunch of vague hand-waving about things I’d like to do, but never any real strategy for going after any of it. Obviously, the first step of this is to build the list.
- make sure that on my 10th anniversary my wife wouldn’t hesitate to marry me all over again (I’ll ask and report back here)
- learn to speak Italian and Japanese
- have at least one book published
- get my shit together so I can have a framebuilding business and have it be my primary job, no later than age 55
- own a Nissan GT-R, 2011-2014 vintage
- see a Shakespeare performance at The Globe
- knock off at least half of my bicycling bucket list
- get another degree (AAS, Machining Technology; certificate in TIG welding)
