Basic Goal List

So this is a basic list of stuff I've been wanting to work on. I'll go into more details on some things, i.e. build a plan of action on how to accomplish said goals. These aren't in any particular order (Meaning Warhammer isn't my top priority, it was just a starting point)




Decide on a list at 2250.
Get list packed in foam
Play 10 games with list
Write battle reports for each game

Get 500 points painted
Get 2 chariots built

Work out regularly
Start with cardio 3 times a week
Someday bike/run a marathon of some sort. Run a 5k?

Write out a study plan for Financial Math Exam
Read up on details of the exam (passing grade etc)
Get books for next semester early (and cheap!)
Don’t get behind in next semesters classes

Pick out 5 recipes to be making regularly (bump this up eventually)
Decide on a general cooking style to focus on (thinking French or Italian)
Learn more about knives
Learn more about pots and pans
Be in control of keeping the kitchen clean

Reread the entire Wheel of Time series and then read the new one
Read the new Jim Butcher book “First Lords Fury”

Assemble a list of Blu-ray movies to eventually pick up
Watch some of the “classics”:
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Clint Eastwood Westerns
Apocalypse Now
Blade Runner
Old James Bond Movies
Any other Sergio Leone films
Schindler’s List
Seven Samurai

Keep track of my finances (Quickbooks, quicken, something similar)
Get new tires for the car
Get new glasses (eye appointment as well)
Setup and go on doctors appointments over winter break

Thoughts on Lists and Progress

I think including the lists of goals and progress on them would end up being tedious on the main page constantly. Maybe I'll post them in google documents of some sort and link to them on the sidebar. That way when I write a new list I can include it in a post and then if I want to check on it can just go through the sidebar.

A Point? Maybe?

So, new blog. Yeah. It should probably have a purpose, a reason... something. The basic idea here is for me to have someplace to keep track of my goals. In general I find myself to be stumbling forward from task to task. I try and organize myself and prioritize my time and it fails again and again. So I'm starting this blog as a place to publish what I am trying to do to the world in the hopes that this publicity aids me in achieving what I am setting out to do.

I'm not sure if I will have much to put up here right off the get go. Next week is finals week and my main goal is getting through finals. After that, we shall see.

Oh yeah. I decided to name this blog "Checked Off" because I have always admired people who are able to make lists and get through them. Even getting that far for myself with grocery lists has taken a long time but it has been worthwhile. I'm looking to find a way to put lists up on here and list % completed and check things off as I achieve them.
