    As we are approaching the half-year mark, just wanted to throw out where's everyone at.

    My goals,

    Apart from the obvious splashy dashy toys,

    I want to

    1) Scratch my ear with my elbow
    2) Run half-naked on a street, pretending to be nuts
    3) Play hide n' seek in a mall.
    4) Don't visit BHW when drunk.

    Now, let's keep yours coming.

    I've already completed some of mine.

    Completed:
    Progress with my weight lifting - Now I squat 150kg, Bench Press 100 and Dead lift 190. But that's a forever progressing goal, really.

    Paid for all my best friends from all over Australia to come down and spend a week where I live. Paid thanks to IM monies.
    Going to be doing that again over the new years too.

    Goals not completed:
    Learn to fly an airplane/helicopter.

    I think my ultimate ULTIMATE goal is to be able to fly around the world with my friends for a year or so. Maybe 2013.

    I'm with meathead - my goal for 2012 is to make as much as I did in 2011.

    Right now, I am down but I have a few projects that are close to being launched so I still have time to catch up.

    Oh, and learn how to restrict the amount of money the wasteful government can take from me and give to lazy folks.

    I've not written any goals down yet, but, my major one is to actually get off of my butt and actually do something that will bring me real money. Another one would be to start proper business and non business networking. Life's running away...

    I am with both of you as well, although I need more focus on what I am doing.

    - Focus on studies, meaning take less time of BHW.

    - Once studies are complete, get back to IM, and make as much $$ as possible.

    If I were I'd split my time accordingly to the schedule while keeping both things running. Maybe not completely equal, but at least some priority.

    Don't forget that IM is also a form of 'studying'

    I just want to keep travling and working my offline businesses (I have 3 brick mortar stores) and keep working my 4 hours a day 4 -5 days a week in IM. My most important goal is my wedding later this year.

    O I forgot my goal is to run the 5k race then the 10k this year

    I would like to make enough to pay off student loans. I am currently a student and would love to graduate with no debt and be able to start my career and not have to worry.

    The one I am definitely with MeatHead on is "Reduce personal working hours!" That is my main goal that I am completely failing so far this year.

    Social life is overrated. Those folks will help you spend your money but will not help you make it.

    I need to work less and make more...

    I guess that means I really gotta grind all my stuff out. I have been getting back into this really hardcore lately and learning new methods to help me expand my markets and train more people to do the work I need done. Training is time consuming but really rewarding.

    Then, maybe do more fishing and hunting this year than last...like to get outdoors....
