Being a newbie at blogging I seek inspiration from the masters.

Leo Babauta writes ZenHabits.  July 3rd he asked his readers a simple question:  What are your top three life goals.  In just five days over 140 people (including me) responded!  Reading what people from around the world shared as what they hope to accomplish with their lives is fun, uplifting and validating.  One responder had to point out that having life goals was very un-zen.  Spoil sport!  Another used his response to shamelessly promote his business.  Loser!  Everyone else appears happy to use the exercise as an opportunity to pause and reflect on what we want to do with the time left to us.
