UPDATE: 29/11/2010

As of today, I am 28 years old. It has been 3 years since I first created this list of goals. Having made little achievement thus far, I figured a revision of this list is in order. It’s slightly similar to the old version but with a higher “achievability” rate. Again, it is based on the principles that Jack Canfield and other motivational speakers had said about making a list of goals/dreams/ambitions, but this time, I am putting “I will…” at the beginning of each sentence describing my goal and putting a deadline to achieve some of the goals. I’ll be checking back on this list often to remind myself of what I have set out to achieve and to further motivate me to carry on striving to meet my goals in life, no matter how small, trivial or insignificant it may be.

Thus, this is the revised list with some new ones included to make it truly my 100 Goals in life:

1. I will earn RM5,000p/mnth in salaried income by 30y.o. (2012)

    Do you find joy in knowing there are tons of people on the planet, so if you don’t complete this thourough throurough list, somebody else will?

  2. jon

    You are Kidding..

    • Ddogg1267

      Dude get the fuck out of here bitch…. U havent even kissed a girl cuz ur too busy kissing guys fucking faggot i piss on ur soup…….

  3. Jake

    and then you die. what then?

  4. Wanda

    Are you still with Amway? I need to get something 😀

    Pls email on wandalustkl@Yahoo.com thanks

  5. Tony

    whats your obession with asia?

  6. Fascinating!
    I’ve never met or heard of anyone as ambitious as you are. Good luck in achieving your wants

  7. Cassandra

    It’s people like you that we need in the world,
    your such an optimist!

  8. TKL

    An inspiring list! Change “I want” to “I will”, and come up with short-term and long-term strategies to achieve these goals. For example, what do you have to do to win a major literary prize by age 35? You have to write, get peer or professional editors to go over your work, perhaps get an agent, get published by a major publishing house, and market your work to the right people. And, of course, your writing has to be very, very good. If you do these things, the prize may follow.

  9. “No.6 I want to learn how to ride a bicycle.” is just as the same as my wish list..:P
    You have too many wish list before you die. But who cares, right? As long as it’s fun, because we live only once.
    Whoa…such a long list, and you need to prepare yourself, but you’re 25 anyway, and you still have a looooooooooooong way to go.
    Keep fighting!!

  10. Boonchuprodigy

    dw about the critisism from the first two…people who never achieve anything like to bring others down. keep ya head up:) your list has given me a few ideas for my own thanks

  11. smr

    i like your list!

  12. hello

    good luck…!!!!!

  13. LMI

    I have acheive many goals I thought was way beyond who I was at the time. The only problem is after all of my short list was accomplished. I realized I did not think big enough and did not have enough goals. Read your list often and calmly do as much as only you can do each day. You will get them all.

  14. That’s an impressive list of goals.:-)

    I’d like to recommand a goal setting tool at http://www.GoalsOnTrack.com, a very nicely built web app designed for tracking goals and todo lists, and supports time tracking too. It’s clear, focused, easy to navigate, worth a try.

  15. Hallo – these are all ambitious goals, and you can do the ones you really want if you eliminate the others that are just whims (that is from Ziglar — ever read/listen to him?). You’re already ahead of so many people because you took the time to write them down and share. Btw, the curry chicken looked delicious; how did it turn out?

    You can do it!

    Good luck

  16. Yehjee

    ur a loser and u have no life

    • Jess

      Yehjee,
      Your comment is rude and uncalled for. How can you call someone a loser how has planned to do so many good things? If these goals offend you, maybe it’s because you’re jealous that you don’t have ANY goals. Maybe, you’re the one who needs to get a life, because it’s obvious that he has one. You seem to be person of low self-esteem, worthlessness, and no morals or respect. Have respect for people with goals, even if you don’t have any!!!!

    • LOL! At least I have goals and working hard towards what I want to achieve.

      Oh, I got a life and certainly one that’s better than yours! ^_^

      I’m sorry for you. Seriously, I am. You gotta be goalless and aimless in this life to want to spew such venom at other people’s blog. Go read Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”. It’ll help put your life back in order. Seriously, go help yourself out before you turn into a mean, grumpy, evil monster that all kids hate! ^_^

  17. Jess

    I enjoyed reading your goals. I have to write an Essay for Human Communications about the difference in the goals of a 25 year-old, and the goals of a 60 year-old person. Reading your goals will be inspirational too many, especially because you have so many. Good luck in achieving them!!

  18. NoName

    You do know that now the whole world knows ur totally unrealistic dreams right?

  19. robert

    this is a good list. But too many are to visit someplace. just do it my man. do it.

    • Chrissy

      Visiting places is good. There are so many different places and people out there, and there’s a lot a person can learn from other cultures.

  20. Fluff

    #19 is a pretty lofty goal because Disneyland is in California.

  21. Hi Eternal Wanderer,

    Great wish list! Now, time’s ticking-have you been revisiting your list and crossing out things that you’ve done? I surely hope so….really, there is no time better than now. The RM120 K per annum can wait-you’ve lots of time for that… 🙂
    Good luck with your list !

  22. chase

    You can’t float in water??? Wtf

    • Chrissy

      Chase, I know many people who can’t float in water. I know many people who have never been to an ocean, or even set foot in a pool. It is not a negative thing. I didn’t even learn to float untill I was 13.

  23. Jimmy

    Message from China: Good luck achieving all that. It’s an impressive and inspiring list.

    Why don’t you give us an update to tell us how you are getting on?

  24. melody

    I love your list. I love your interest in Asia.
    I’m 15 years old and I live in Israel. I also have a list, but it’s mostly of short-term things, and I’d love to keep in touch with you.
    My email is roncha123@walla.com
    I’d like to hear from you sometime, even though it’s an old post and I don’t know if you still read the comments.

    Keep doing what you do.
    Jump.
    Love, Melody.

  25. I run an organisation focused on helping indivudals and organisations, develop and use their full potential.

    What a fantastic list of goals! This page was forwarded to me by one of my team leaders who I guess knew I just wouldn’t be able to resist replying to you. You can do this, you’ve already begun the journey, you’ve crystallized your thinking, you know the specific goals you want to achieve, next steps:
    1) Dedicate yourself to the achievement of these goals with unswerving singleness of purpose. The trenchent zeal of a crusader
    2) Develop a Plan of Action for the Achievement of each one of these goals and set deadlines to achieve them (prioritise them, first things first). Plan your progress hour by hour, day by day, month by month. Organised activity and maintained enthusiasm are the wellsprings of your power.
    3) Develop a Sincere Desire for the Things you want in life (it appears you already have). A burning desire is the greatest human motivator of every human action. The desire for success implants a “success consciousness”, which in turn, creates an ever increasing “habit of success”.
    4) Develop Supremen Confidence in Yourself and Your Own Abilities (Believe you can achieve these goals, become what they demand). Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses…on your powers, instead of your problems.
    5) Develop a Dogged Determination with Sustained Effort, Controlled Attention, and Concentrated Energy. OPPORTUNITIES never come to those who wait…they are captured by those who dare to take ACTION!

    “Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely beleive and enthusiastically act upon MUST inevitably come to pass!” – Paul J. Meyer

    The steps above are from Paul J. Meyer’s Million Dollar Success Plan, the criteria every single on of his goals had to meet throughout his life, from the age of 18. He inspired many across the globe, drove goal directed action, the only process to the realisation of your dreams!!!!

    I wish you success! Keep me posted.

    Positively,

    Gillian Wall, IBB

  26. Tamika

    This is amazing…I hope you achieve ever one of them. Good Luck

  27. Jorge

    Great list. However, it starts with two money oriented goals. In my view, that´s a recipe for unhappiness and frustation. Still, I wish you the best! Jorge

  28. I really like your transitions and clarity. I have been writing for Ghost Writers for a while now, and they pay me well to write blog posts like this, or articles. I clear $100-$200 on a bad evening.
    Judging by your ability with the english language, you may enjoy doing the same.
    It wouldnt hurt to check them out.Here are the details

  29. chloe

  31. Aroha

    You are amazing! Im glad to see other people doing this too and sharing it with others 🙂
    I would like to say good luck, but realy you dont need it, you took the first step years ago by doing this and the law of attraction is definitely going to help you out 🙂 I’m sure you’ve achieved a few of these already so CONGRATS!
    Best wishes as you continue your beautifully blessed life.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
