Running in John Prince Lake, Lake Worth, Fl
Yes, my free days are back. I can return to my days of running and re-learning things I used to love learning. It is rebooting time. But how and where exactly should I start? The two main areas I believe I am well versed at are Health and Computer Programming.
As far health is concerned, I have this dream of creating an exhaustive database about health self-management in my mind. As far as computer programming is concerned, I must continue learning because programming is very fluid so I need to keep studying computer languages because what I know today will easily be outdated tomorrow. Besides, it will keep my dementia at bay.
These are the two main goals I need to focus on. And under these goals, there are a few corollary goals. First, health self-management begins with my own body. I can read and do research on health and injuries and rehab all I want but if my body is not healthy, it would be a shame and a great hypocrisy to claim self-expertise.
Second, I should start doubling my computer programming skills and the best way to accomplish this is constant practice and learning. In this case, I should look for other and better avenues of learning. Universities are overrated.
So these are the main goals I have for now and I am sure there will be lots of diversions that will prevent me from reaching them. But I will try my best.
As a PT, I am well trained when it comes to establishing goals. I should apply my skills in my personal goals.
So my question now is - What exactly do I want as far as my health is concerned?

4) Work on social responsibility

b) be information-driven and responsibility-driven, not money-driven in sharing information
c) be nice to people around me

5) Spend more time for spirituality
