I am either studying in Newcastle for 4 years or starting my career here. My other main activities are tai chi and language-learning, so I don’t feel that there are too many other things to consider. I’m not going to make a strict plan because life doesn’t often work in that way, but I feel that the above is a flexible guideline. 6 years ago


This is definitely sorted, because Newcastle is a big enough place to give me plenty of opportunities for a career, and I really like living here. I feel established here, with a life outside of work, and I wouldn’t want to lose this by moving away so soon. So, I am almost certain I will be here for at least the next 5 years :) 6 years ago

Vericuester5 year plan

I asked my boss about advice for grad school. She has 2 masters and recommended I make a 5 year plan. One of my coworkers has also suggested this. Since I am off tomorrow, I will do this and make a list of positive/negative coping skills to help with self-management of my mental illness, anxiety, depression, grad school, work life, etc. 7 months ago

I’m reading a book about building a better network of relationships and how it can help meet your goals. A key point was how having goals and writing them down is essential I have some goals for this 2013 and 2014, but not much beyond that yet. 43things is a mix of dreams and tasks, but what this plan is about is goals. A goal is “a dream with a deadline”. 9 months ago

HoffyNot there yet..

I have figured out what i want to do the next 3 years when it comes to work and education, i will go to University and study Behavioral science, and that is a big step for me knowing what i want to do finally. I`m 30 years old and i have tried out different kinds of work, and i have studied different stuff, but never got the feeling that i was on “the right track”.. This time my decision feels more right than ever..
I know now more than ever that reaching the goal is not the most important thing for me, it´s the amazing and exciting journey it brings me, so i will do my best to have as much fun as possible doing this..
Soo! I got that part figured out (for now). But i`m still not satisfied when it comes to other sides of my life..So i will not set this goal as done, not yet.. 12 months ago
