Life Goal List

Written by Sean

Topics: Sean's Blog

I assigned homework for our “The Circle Maker” class last week, and thought it’d be responsible to do the homework as well.  The task was simple, and incredibly difficult: Write out the start of your life goal list.  I’m posting below what I have so far.  Some goals are selfish, some goals seem impossible, but every goal was thought out and prayed over.  These goals are fluid too; as in they can always change.  Just because it’s on the list now, doesn’t mean it stays.  If the desires or direction of my life change in the future, I’m not opposed to deleting a line item, even if unfulfilled.  Do you have life goals?  What are they?
