  1. Make a list of all skills adjacent to existing skills
  2. Tag them based on "what you are curious about?"; "what skills have optimum ease of learning-challenging to learn?" and "what skills are useful for growth?"

Anti-goals represent a palpable set of values and actions that we don’t want to have and do. For example:

  • Not wanting to be buried in debt or living above my means
  • Not wanting to be stuck in the office until midnight
  • Not wanting to be unfit or over a certain weight by 50.
