1. what do you do in your spare time? 2. what would you like to be doing with your spare time that you're not already doing? i'm starting to see the people i know and meet in light of what they do in their spare time. some people don't seem to have explicit goals, but accomplish so much just by being there for family/friends. others are very goal-driven. lately i've been: - discovering different genres of music ("trying everything") - learning guitar - trying to get a study group for high school kids going i'd like to: - have that study group going - spend more time with my parents (and family in general) - learn how to dance - read up more on game theory and economics - participate in public speaking/debating i guess the point of the exercise is to think of why you're not doing the stuff in column B.
