Obviously, there are several goals that I won't be meeting by the end of the year! :( Some of them, that's disappointing, but I realize that I didn't put in the work to meet them (like running and biking mileage - those really should have been doable). Others I don't care as much about the accomplishment now as I did at the beginning of the year (like barefoot running, or doing a pull-up - still things that I'm interested in, just not something that got prioritized and that's ok).
I've been thinking about goals lately also because the 3-year span of my 30 Before 30 list is quickly coming to a close, and there are a lot more left than accomplished. And I'm not sure I care. Does that make a list of goals pointless? Have I still done more of these things than I would have done without the list? Does it matter whether I accomplish these things, when they're things that would be cool/fun to do, but don't necessarily significantly impact my quality of life?
