Yeah - I don't do that big-goals thing anymore. I sort of used to, until I realized that not only can I not control anything but my own actions, but I don't live in a bubble where other influences will quiet down and allow me to stick to a plan. Any time I've tried to save money toward a goal or work toward it, something interferes, beyond what could be called reasonable small obstacles of life.

So now, what I do is go from one small goal to another and save month to month with no real prize at the end other than survival, punctuated by small pleasures. It's surprising how much better it seems to work, and is less disappointing. I wouldn't have had this view at 30, but I've been through enough in the past decade to see how life actually operates. ;-)
