Finish your outdoor work 
     and get your fields ready; 

     after that, build your house.
Proverbs 24:27

I applied my heart to what I observed
     and learned a lesson from what I saw:
A little sleep, a little slumber,
     a little folding of the hands to rest-
and poverty will come on you like a bandit
     and scarcity like an armed man.
Proverbs 24:32-34

Back in August I decided I needed to restart up my goals. Earlier this year I finished my first set of 1001 days and most of my goals went unaccomplished. So I decided I want to try it again. This time putting an emphasis on my long term plan for life and not simply making a list of 101 things that would be cool to do. Also I will be trying to keep in mind that certain things must happen at certain times or they will never get accomplished. The experience of trying to accomplish the goals made a huge impact on my life and I this this time trying to accomplish a more focused set of goals will have a great impact on my life.
