I read a book once that talked about how the act of writing down your goals, even the ones that seem crazy or unobtainable, inserts them into your subconscious in a way that just thinking about them doesn't.  The idea is that once they're in your subconscious, you're able to recognize opportunities that you may otherwise not have noticed.  I was skeptical at first but I went ahead and wrote down all the goals that I could think of and, almost immediately, a great opportunity came out of nowhere.  So, these are my goals.  I like to think of this as the to do list for my life.  Some of the things on here are easily achievable; some are not.  I'll add things as I think of them and cross them off as I complete them.
