Business 1, Lesson 35 – Three Goals I’m Committing to Achieve by Age 70

Writing assignment: write 500 words. Topic: “What are three goals that I am committing to achieve by age 70? Why?” (250 words) “How will owning my own business increase the likelihood that I will attain them?” (250 words)

Everyone sets goals, or says they want to accomplish this and that. But once you make some goals, there are two paths you can take. You can work hard, putting in time and effort to achieve your goals, or you can sit around and not do anything about it except hope that someday those goals you made ten years ago will magically achieve themselves. Most people, unfortunately, take the second path. I, however, will not be one of those people. So, here are my three goals that I am committing to achieve by age 70.

    Number one, I would like to establish a proper routine. My current sleep schedule is, to say the least, horrible. I am going to change that, though I don’t think it will take me until 70 to get into a routine, most likely only a year or two. I want to go to sleep at a set time, wake at a set time, eat at set times, go for walks, work for certain time periods, etc. Organization always makes me feel good, even if I currently don’t follow through with those plans.

    Number two, I want to have a legacy to leave behind to my heirs. I would like to leave them an estate, a business to run, and some money so those who want to start their own business will have some start-up funds.

    Number three, I would like a steady income flow so that in retirement I may relax and not have to work every day. Maybe I can focus more on writing in retirement.

    Now how will owning my own business increase the likelihood I will achieve these goals? Simple. Owning my own business will help me achieve the first goal because I’ll need to make and maintain a schedule so I can be successful and organized. For the second goal, owning my own business in and of itself will be achieving that goal because I will be able to hand that business down to my children. And with the money I would make from that business, I can buy an estate to leave behind. Owning my own business will assist me in attaining my third goal because the business will make profits, some of which I can put in my retirement funds. So those are the three goals I am committing to achieve by the time I am 70 years old and how owning my own business will help me achieve them.
