What Not to Do List
Most Goals are never a straight line, and priorities sometimes change. Be
flexible and be ready to adapt. Break the goals down into more manageable
chunks. If you can't do one thing then do another. Be the captain of your
ship. Don't try to do it all, do as much as you can with the time you
have. Try doing things that are the most important first.

interpreter, stored in a plain text file. A batch file may contain any
command the interpreter accepts interactively and use constructs that
enable conditional branching and looping within the batch file, such as
"if", "for", "goto" and labels. The term "batch" is from batch processing,
meaning "non-interactive execution", though a batch file may not process a
batch of multiple data.

Having a dream or a fantasy
is different from having goals,
responsibilities or priorities. If you believe that you have restrictions, or you believe there are certain things that are
holding you back, then what you need are problem solving skills
and an expert to help guide you through the difficulties. The
only real limitation is your mind. If you lack the necessary
information and knowledge in order to achieve a goal or dream
then it's up to you to acquire it. So there seems to be one more
limitation, which is having access to necessary information and
knowledge, which brings you back to problem solving."

for now it gives you a chance to find out what you might have
done wrong, or what you might have done right. Plans are a
documentation of your intentions, something that you can learn
from, something to apply to new plans. A plan is either a step
forward, or a step backward, So what's your next step?
Even if your plans change, or even if your goals
were not reached, it's still better to have plans and goals then
to have no plans or goals at all. A plan is not a set course of
action that cannot be changed or modified. A goal is not a
commitment that cannot be changed or modified. It's just better
to have a plan and a goal, one that says "this is what I know
now, and at this time, this looks like the correct action to
take, even knowing that things change, and even knowing that I
will learn more things along the way that might change the plans
