What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” -Henry David Thoreau

The following are the most inspiring, challenging, or just plain fun things I want to accomplish before I die.

These goals are posted on the wall of my office where I read them every day:

  1. Become financially free ($10,000/month in residual income).
  2. Pay off my house.
  3. Help 1,000 families become financially free (residual income exceeding expenses).
  4. Earn $1 million/year in residual income.
  5. Build a classical-based entrepreneurship school.
  6. Build an email database to 1 million.

What’s your bucket list? Do you have your goals written down?

I challenge you to do so, for as Tony Robbins said,

“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
