Last night I had one pervasive thought: I’m not going to live long enough to do everything I want to. I would be okay with this if I had a plan to do most of what I wanted to do. Actually, I’d be okay with this if I knew what I wanted to do.

There are far too many books that I want to read today, I can’t imagine what will be published over the next 30 years. There are places to go, bands to see, friends to visit. This says nothing about the professional goals I have: becoming a better clinician, changing careers, writing software…

I have no real plan to address these goals. I am just working to reach these goals. I’m not opposed to plans…but how do I craft an entire lifeplan?
