83 dreams

Inspired by Laura Vanderkam “list of 100 dreams”. I made it 83 :). This is my go to, for now and then, for a spare half day somewhere, my next project, my next medium-term to longer-term goals. This will be a more spaced out goal setting tool for me and that I’m still trialing (it will be a longer trial). I’m seeing how it goes. So I started the list this year. I envision I will re-visit/change now and then, but update definitely in 3-5 years time. Perhaps the travel and study goals will take a bit longer to get through and will have to carry through for a while. Would love to know if others list their goals too.
