What Now

July 29th, 2007 at 09:59 am

Iíve been thinking about where my life is headed. I have a good job. I work three days a week. I get up at 4:30 in the morning and work until 6 pm. It is repetitive with occasional bouts of stress. I have some good days and some days I canít even tolerate it. I feel like a drone. I work, come home to my apartment, eat, sleep and do it again tomorrow. I really canít see myself doing this another 10, 20 or even 30 years.

So the question to ask is: whatís next? What do I want to accomplish next?

Setting goals will help give me some aim. Itís like a game and games make life fun. What I need are some long/short term goals. Here are a few things Iíd like to do:

ē Become a homeowner
ē See the world
ē Write a book

Right now, Iím right where I planned to be. This was my vision. I think anything can be accomplished if I have a clear picture of what I want in my head. Overall, the most important goal is happiness. The main thing to overcome: fear.

Iíd like to add becoming financially independent to that list. Then Iíd be free. I am so sick of getting up at 4:30 in the morning. In addition to that, Iím sick of all the b.s. I have to deal with at work. I just read that there is no such thing as job security. Social security is going bankrupt and many people will not have enough money to retire. So what now?
