Wow my plan involved nothing more than being happy every day, thats it. So far I am on the money!
No Lives Matter
To see as much as I can see, to travel as much as I can, to do as much as I can do, to experience as much as I can experience.
Which is the reason that I cannot say "no" to opportunities when they present themselves. Even if I'm unsure about said opportunities, if it's an opportunity to do or see or experience something different and new, then I am compelled to accept said opportunity.
My goal is to be able to say, "I have no regrets," on my deathbed. Thus far, I can still say that. And I am slowly scratching things off my "bucket list".
I keep seeing these things on the internet about "how many five year olds could you take in a fight?". I'd really like to know that....

1. Raise my daughters to be the most well-balanced, talented, intelligent and emotionally together peopel that I can.
2. Help less-advantaged people, which I do... I write letters for/with Amnesty International
3. Protect the Environment, which I do... Volunteer with local Greenpeace group, organize beach clean days, etc.
4. Help the community, which I do as a volunteer fire fighter and helping disadvanted teens and troubled gang kids.
5. Be physically fit and extremely active, surfing, bodysurfing, basketball, mountain biking, etc.
6. To travel and get in adventures, like Cain from Kung Fu... you know, basically walk the earth.
7. To experience life, from an taking in amazing sunsets and watching a butterfly flutter amonst some flowers to climbing mountain peaks in Yosemite or meeting people from all over the world and learning about them and their cultures.
I want to be well balanced and helpful to others, in general.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I have never really cared about being rich. Nothing I like I like doing costs that much money. Basically, my interests consist of fishing, backpacking, running, gardening, spending time with my wife and kids, and cheap beer. All being rich would get me would be just doing those things in other places around the world when I wanted to.

I picked "Raising A Family" because for me it entails many other things that I place very high on my ambition list. I believe successfully raising a family shows that I have had the appropriate amount of success to do so. This success includes financial prosperity, a healthy lifestyle, and other things.
At first I wanted to pick "Get Rich" but I asked myself "why do I want to get rich?" My first answer was that I would want to share my success with family or use my success to help raise my family. Therefore raising a family is an ambition that succeeds getting rich in both time and in value.
To end up better off than my parents.
