# 3 - The big goals question - not sure?
Tuesday, November 05, 2013
3. What is your big picture, long-term goal? Why is this goal the one you work towards?
To answer this honestly, I have to say simply that I am not sure. Big pic, long term goal ? wow. Well:
We as a household are moving into that season of young adult children. We range from the youngest in 11th to a Fr. and Soph in college and one home from college on her way (hopefully) to Medical School. So life is moving fast - we have more time on our hands, but the challenges are different and perhaps the financial stress is always there. One thing - I wouldn't consider us wealthy. The Government does and all financial aid packages do - so its after tax dollars paying for college....thank the lord we have smart kids and they have some Merit $$ and 1 at the Naval Academy (which is by no means totally free).
I digress - but it is the point really. I focus so much on getting through the phase, that I don't have a long term perspective.
Yes we as a couple hope to travel and sail and hike and canoe and play golf - can't do all of that if you are too heavy or out of shape.
So for now I'll term my big picture goal to be: TO BE PRESENT AND OF ABLE BODY.
