Hup hup hup--up and at 'em!

Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, says sit down right now and write down your goals and aspirations.

Write about two paragraphs.

This is not an elevator speech--it's just for you.

Studies have shown this increases your confidence. You will use more action verbs.

You will prepare more--do more homework.

Keep your back straight, dress appropriately.

Show interest in others.

So do it now--write down your goals--not stuff like be a CEO by age 30, but more general goals--to help others, make enough money not to worry all the time, live up to the expectations of others.

I was talking to a friend and we decided you can think about the meaning of life--or set out to have a life of meaning.

Leave the world a better place. Heaven knows it needs a makeover.

Similar concept (to your last paragraph):

Usual quote -
The unexamined life is not worth living.

Alternate version -
The unlived life is not worth examining.
