4 before 41

I am officially abandoning my 40 before 40 list.  School is a great thing, and I am going to be superfly once I have my Masters of Science in Bioinformatics (what! what!), but I am realizing there is a lot of hard work before I get there.  Coupled with lots of new opportunities and pressures at my job, I gotta get myself straight.  So I have pared down my list to just the four things that I will have the capacity to focus on and achieve.  My yearly goals will need to be modified to accomodate this new focus.  I will still craft and read and travel – I just won’t keep track on a master spreadsheet.  That will be weird and liberating.

Here is the list:

1. Get a Masters of Science in Bioinformatics.

2. Lose 70 lbs.

3. Be debt free.

4. Have a well-organized house.

  1. I LOVE this! I stopped counting several things this year and have found I can now simply enjoy those things instead of feeling pressure to do them. I’ve still got plenty of things that I am pressured to do, but now have an un-list of non-pressured activities. 🙂

  2. I have a “one before 50” list. It’s that we get together for cocktails and stuff. But I’ve been stressed with the show and now my house is a sty and I feel your pain! Get it somewhat together with the studying and whatnot…relax a little…and send me an email. I’m ready when you are! And happy belated birthday!

  3. I think this is a great “4 before 40” list. Sometimes you have to focus and prioritize! These are all great things to work toward! 🙂
