I wrote down a list of life goals in my pocket notebook a few days ago. This took no more than five minutes; I just listened to my gut. It's not a long list, but it looks like enough to keep me busy for the next 60 years or however long I'll be around. Lately, I analyze all of my activities as to whether they push me closer to one of those goals. It's akin to a constitutional analysis: is there a close nexus between this activity one of my legitimate interests? If I can't justify the action, I don't do it and do something that is justified.
This has brought a remarkable clarity to the day.
