Well, hello there. It’s Tuesday, but it feels like a Monday for the Americans among us who had Presidents’ Day off. Still, making it to lunchtime is a little victory for us all, eh? Today’s poll, partially inspired by Nanna’s lovely piece yesterday, is about goals.
We all use goals to keep us motivated. They can be small goals for the day (“Clean all the things!”) or goals for a year (“Get a job! That pays!”). But everyone has those bigger goals. The kind of lifetime goals that you know you only have a small chance of achieving but you hold onto anyway.
Mine are so rote as to almost not be worth mentioning: run a marathon and publish a novel. And I keep them in the back of my mind despite the fact that I have a bad knee, and I lack literary talent. But as long as they’re there, unfufilled, it gives me something to shoot for.
What about you, commenters? What are your pie-in-the-sky dreams or goals that you keep in your hearts?
