I've been doing some reflecting since I finished my BSc last year. Here's one of the lists that I've compiled.

What I've studied:
(These were all university classes I took.)

Start with the things that you know and the things that are unknown will be revealed to you. Rembrandt

Skills I've acquired:

Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another. John Dewey

Subjects I want to learn more about:

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Cicero

Knowledge isn't just for knowledge's sake--
Skills I want to acquire:

What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. Viktor Frankl

Experiences I should acquire:
(Green eggs and ham.)

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. Aristotle

Every pie-in-the-sky ambition...
(Wouldn't it be cool if I did even a couple of these though?)

Not to assume it's impossible because you find it hard. But to recognise that if it's humanly possible, you can do it too. Meditations book 6

Plans are fun, but words are wind. The end list of more realistic goals may look like this:

Songs, like trees, only bear fruit in their own time and their own way. Treebeard
