Today, I did a simple exercise. I wrote down the things I would do if I wasn’t limited by time or money, then I picked the top 5 things I would focus on right now. Lastly, I made my goals more specific to my current situation. So here are my top 5 short term goals:

  1. Write in journal
  2. Read books
  3. Play guitar
  4. Make YouTube videos
  5. Learn/Study for the CFA Foundations exam

These are the things I should be focusing on by cutting out all the distractions. The 5th goal is where I’ll be applying my #30by7project. I will study for the CFA Foundations exam for at least 30 minutes per day. Though it will take me longer than a week to finish the preparations, I hope to complete my studies in a month.

However, there’s another goal that I want to achieve, it’s a goal in the future, maybe 10 years down the line. It’s to travel the world by bicycle. Since that requires a foundamental lifestyle change, it’ll have to be in a different category of its own and have its own goals.
