My goals

These are my long term goals, divided into 3 levels. The trick is to define a distant life goal (3rd level) which seems to be unreachable for you. Then, think which are the intermediate steps toward this goal and define them on a time scale. Having such plan, the first level turns out to be relatively easy and doable. So we start believing that we can do all of it 🙂

Enjoy and be inspired!

This method is popularized by Mirek Burnejko and presented in a great online course Szkoła Celów (which can be translated as School of Goals - only in Polish now).

Note that not all my goals are public so far, especially related to family and income results.
