    The Pro's always say the best goals are those that are written down.

    Do you have goals?

    When I was a kid in school the teachers always pushed the idea of goals. I never did because the big A was right around the cornor. Now as an adult it is even harder to put goals in place. However, the longer I am away from JW things, the better I feel about the future. So I think it is time for meaningful goals.

    Goals are new, forwarding - moving objectives. They Magnetize you towards them.

    See 25 National Parks before I am 50. I have seen 20 so far, 2 more

    in Washington state this month.

    Change careers from analysis type work to creative type work by the

    time I am 50.

    Make more friends.

    Thats about it. I have accomplished most of my goals.

    To stay young and look young as long as possible, and to live like a youngster as long as possible. I dread getting old.

    My Goals:

    Get my wife and kids successfully out of JWs in the next six months.

    Sell my house and properties where I live and build a house outside Asheville, North Carolina and live mortgage free (buying the property next week hopefully).

    Spend more time with my family and help my kids to grow up as normal non-JWs. Teach them to learn how to make good friend choices based on character, and not based on what religion they are. Teach them how to set goals and work hard.

    Develop my songwriting skills working with songwriters in Asheville .... hopefully get good enough commercially.
    Start an indie record label to develop young artists in Asheville .... build a project studio.

    Help my wife develop her crafts business.
