    The opportunities are vanishing very fast. I have to put up a fierce fight against time and other distractions to achieve this goal. Getting a regular job in 5 years has no meaning at this stage. The process can be broken down into three parallel processes.
    1- Identify and apply for jobs
    2- Upgrade knowledge and
    3- Increase the quantifiable achievements
    Even if you can do it, no one will accept it until you have previous experience or results to prove the capabilities required. Therefore a proper plan is needed, and its time to jump into a quick action plan. If I am unsuccessful in finding a regular job within next 3 months, starvation could be in my agenda.

    This must be pushed to the top as a top priority.

    I installed the new version of Python (v 3.6.1) yesterday and started learning.

    I found that Python is a very attractive freeware which can be used easily, and even to program difficult tasks. This instantly became a great motivator for me to learn Python. Specially when I read that $50 worth Raspberry PI computers can be programmed with it.

    One of my friends has been maintaining his weight constant at 155 lb for more than 35 years now. This means its possible to do. Perseverance is the key to success in achieving this goal.

    Too many fluctuations around this mark, but still maintaining it as an average value. The aim is to reduce my weight to 150 lb or less by the end of this year 2017. Now 177lb.

    My weight increased by 3 lb over the weekend. rowning;
    The reason may be the shift in meal habits. Almost 50% of the efforts during last 2 weeks are gone.

    I don't want to limit my writings to one language. Thinking in a different languages allows you to think of the same thing in different ways . So I re-started composing short poems in English too. I need to find a forum to put them, in order to get a feedback.

    Started a journey by writing Sinhalese poems again, and putting them up on a FB forum for poems. This is a better way to start and reach some level of perfection, before I really start my own blog.

    Reading subject related matter happens automatically. I have to make an effort to read anything outside the subject area this year.

    The objective is to get back to my old hobby of reading.

    Move to organizing the mostly untouched area of storage yesterday. Did a partial sorting and got 50% of my storage room organized. Need to finish the remainder within next two days. Will allow nothing to go in bags again , if possible. Everything should go in packaging, or on the shelves.

    Learned one lesson on keeping things clean today. My friend replaced the printer, and immediately disposed the old one. This way no accumulation of stuff, which cannot be used.

    Does de-cluttering means discarding the stuff ? I don't think so. May be identifying the displaced items, and putting them in places where they need to be too will form a big part of this exercise. Some things are not been used because they were not found at the time they are needed. So now I'm going to apply a different strategy to declutter my stuff and my life, both. Organize, and re-organize . If this is successful, then the task will be easy. :)

    I have this habit of buying anything after considering it from many angles, sometimes over a long time before buy. So once I buy it, its difficult to discard it at once. This is one of the main traits in having somethings in my storage, still hoping to do what I originally planned to do with it, may be on a future date.

    If I can find a way around to solve this, then I will be able to declutter myself soon. But some times I wonder do I really need to declutter. :)

    Buy less, and collect less. Give up what you don't need, because it will help to free-up space. &#xsmile; Giving up is the most difficult thing , when you buy after considering so much whether you need it or not.

    This goal was on my mind, but never thought of doing it this way until I saw this as a tough goal of another 43Things user. Now it will begin, and this will help me to read about 15-20 books over the next few months. I will group the studies in to few sub groups and prioritize before starting to read them.

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
