My Life Goals

This list is far from complete, but I’ll be adding more to it soon!

Short Term Goals

1. I want to get a start on minimalist living by getting rid of 20% of my belongings:
-Television
-Furniture we don’t use
-Equipment/Gear I never use: Paintball gun, old fishing gear, etc.
-The totes in the basement (Must not be too important since we’ve left them there for months now)
-Everything else I don’t use

2. Build cashflow and hammer down expenses – the simple way: I’m not saying the process will be easy, but if i do it right, it’ll be easy to manage in the future.

-Write an ebook to publish on Amazon. This may not bring in much, but hey, I love to write anyway, it can’t hurt!
-Become a YouTube partner (Passive income potential).
-Start a Freelance Writing business

4. Make a list of people I want to spend more time with, and make time to build our relationships.

5. Quit my job. This will be either the most effective or most detrimental action I take in my journey toward the minimalist lifestyle.

-Stop working 50+ hour weeks.
-Find a career that will give me the flexibility to travel, spend time with my family and friends, and still earn a good living.

Long Term Goals

1. Travel the world: When I say travel the world, I mean that very literally – I want to set foot on every continent and live with the locals in a variety of places. I’ll go into more details with my bucket list.

Malaysia

India

Japan

Germany

Scotland

France

Colombia

Australia

Russia

Israel

Jordan

Egypt

Iran

Iraq

Africa

2. Build a Ranch: My wife and I love horses, and nature in general. It doesn’t have to be huge, but it does need horses, a pond or creek to fish in, and woods to hunt in.

3. Create a self-sustained homestead: NO BILLS – no electric bill, no gas bill, no water bill, no food expense, no entertainment expense, NO TAXES. Okay I’m not sure if I can pull that last one off, but one way or the other, we’ll figure out how to build a self sustained ranch that we can either choose to live on, or just have as a back up in case we want to go on a mini-retirement or something.

4. Buy a fishing boat in Ecuador: Deep sea fishing is some of the most fun I’ve ever had, and I’d like to have a nice, simple little fishing boat for that precise purpose: Fishing.

Well that’s all I can think of for now, but I’ll keep adding to this when I think of more (because there definitely is more).
