Since my late 20s, I have always had a life goal. My life goals are rarely SMART goals. It’s questionable whether my goals are attainable and reasonable when I set them. And this has given rise to my close friends questioning my rationality. I have had three life goals so far: to get a Ph.D. in philosophy; to get a black belt in Hapkido; and to compete in an Ironman competition. I have successfully completed all three goals. Three out of three ain’t bad. I now have a fourth life goal: to cycle across Canada. Coast to coast. The plan right now is to do this in the summer of 2019. Among other things, this blog will chronicle my journey.
