My goals:

Pay a visit to both the geographical North and South Pole.
Climb Gunnbjornsfjeld (spelling?) highest peak in Greenland.
Visit every European Country
Go to a good college
Have fun, make money doing whatever I enjoy!

You?

My goal since I was 10 was to become an airline pilot - as things stand, this is working out, as long as I get a job and don't cock up any exams.

You'll need more than "a bit" of money to retire in Norway...  Wink

My goals:

Get a good/fun job  checkmark 
Earn a bit of money  checkmark 
Get a nice car
Get married
Have kids

(Not necessarily in that order, but there we are.)

Career in law enforcement.
Travel to Europe.
Travel to Downunder to NZ and AU.
Save enough for steady healthy income for retirement
Raise Kids with good sense (One was the Arizona High School Chess Champ, so he already smarter than Dad)

Evolved to:
Plan for an active retirement
Take care of health
Enjoy life to the fullest
Get the kids though college

I have several major goals in my life that I am working to meet:

1) Become a craniofacial deformities research doctor. To meet this goal, I have been studying at King's College London, England, since 2004, in the department of craniofacial development. I am currently applying for PhD courses, and next year, if successful, I plan to begin my PhD training in this same field. This is inspired by my own lifetime experiences with Treacher Collins syndrome.

Part of this goal is to further study why the TCOF1 gene mutation leads to the mass death of cells that are supposed to form the embryonic mandibular arch (this causes Treacher Collins syndrome). In fact, just recently, I wrote a project proposal in one of my courses at King's College London all about this!

2) Finish writing my autobiography. Titled "The Pancake Kid" (after a poem written about me as a child), this book will tell the story of my life with my craniofacial deformities and how I have struggled to overcome these challenges. A tell-all book is in the works!  Wink I began writing this book back in 2002, but when I moved to London, UK, in 2004, it got put on hold. Now, since I have been able to transfer it from my obsolete ZIP Disk to a new USB Flash Drive, I can get back to work on it! Right now, I am living a major chapter--in London! Wish me luck that it gets published someday!

3) Become an even better musician than I am now. I have played piano since I was a toddler (even before I began piano lessons in 1984 at age 8), and have given many performances. Even though my piano playing is excellent, I always strive to get better with time. Learning to play the piano as a child was a huge miracle--despite being "the man with no ears"! Now, since 2005, I have actually been teaching myself violin--on a green violin that I found in London! With time, my violin playing may catch up with my lifetime's worth of excellent piano playing! (My lifetime experience with the piano and my background in music have helped greatly in my teaching myself the violin).

4) Who knows--perhaps a run at the White House someday?  Wink

Ok, there is another goal of me: Some day I want to own a night-club. I know that this will for 90% never happen but I will work on it, though.  Wink

The '70s pretty well kicked my goals out from under me.

Is doing a bicentennial minute and being mentioned in at least one of Howard Hughes' wills too much to ask?

I really thought my turn would come up sooner with Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor-Hilton Wilding Todd Fisher Burton Burton Warner Fortensky. At least while she was still fairly attractive.
