Default Too many goals?

I think I have TOO many goals and I donít know how to trim them.
I have art goals, I want to draw well, do color pencil, pen & ink, water color pencil, cartooning, word art...I Have physical goals: I want to lose weight, Music goals are to develop my voice and learn to read music, play piano, harmonica and recorder, I want to learn dog training and behavior, I want to learn a second language and how to juggle.

How do I decide what stays and what goes?

Barbara Sher would say, "Do them all." Maybe one at a time. A goal during the summer. One for the winter. Or a different goal for each day of the week. or a major goal for the year - like a class in dog training, and a couple of goals on the side - like singing and drawing.
Good luck.

I agree with the previous poster, do them all. Figure out what you want to work on first, like learning to read music. Because that will help some of your other goals along. You sound like a very creative person. Great. Have fun.
