Good Quotes!“We all have two choices: we can make a living or we can design a life.” Jim Rohn
"Nobody sets the rules but you. You can design your own life.” Carrie-Anne Moss.
“Lead a life of your own design, on your own terms. Not one that others or the environment have scripted for you.” Tony Robbins
Why Lifestyle Goals?Life goals on how to improve your lifestyle should be established to develop and live the life you desire. Lifestyle can mean so many different things to each of you. Lifestyle is about the manner in which you live, from the type of house you live in to the type of experiences you enjoy.
There are hundreds of potential life goals related to how to improve your lifestyle and have a good (or great) lifestyle. Let these be the start for you to brainstorm your own list.
There is no right or wrong answer. These are the goals that are important to me and my wife, but they may not be important to you. Substitute the ones that don't inspire you.
One of the best slogans for life and lifestyle is from my real estate mentors, Tom and Nick Karadza of Rock Star Real Estate. It perfectly captures the essence lifestyle goals . . . .
"YOUR LIFE, YOUR TERMS"
10 Lifestyle Goals at 100 GOALS CLUBAt the 100 Goals Club, the 10 carefully crafted life goals related to lifestyle are:
81 - Eat at good restaurants - Kathy and I love eating out at good restaurants. Finding the perfect combination of good food, good service, good atmosphere and good value by trying out new restaurants and returning to your favourite restaurants is part of a great lifestyle.
82 - Declutter your life - Feel the freedom that comes from purging the things in your life that you no longer need. Better yet, avoid buying them in the first place.
83 - Take weekend getaways - Weekends are meant for many things. Truly special ones are the weekends you get away to visit friends, family and new places.
84 - Buy high quality stuff - It gives me great satisfaction to research and purchase stuff that is of high quality and will outlast lower quality products. Think about how many years you will use your purchase and adjust your spend accordingly to buy quality.
85 - Buy your first house - Getting started in real estate with the purchase of your first house is one of the most important steps for any young person / couple.
86 - Experience life - Remember that life is all about the journey and not the destination. Live in the present / moment and embrace opportunities to experience life in new and unique ways.
87 - Own a vacation property - We own a lakefront cottage and are in the prime of our life enjoying it due to our recent retirement. Owning a vacation property does come with a lot of responsibility to maintain and manage it and may not be for you. Alternatively, you may consider enjoying your friend of family members vacation property. If you do, show them how much you appreciate it by helping out.
88 - Pay others to do chores - This is a great aspirational goal. I still find myself doing chores (yard work, renovation work) especially now during retirement, but some of this I truly enjoy. But it does feel good when you have the money to pay good people to do quality work and relieve the burden of anything you consider a chore. We now pay a cleaner to have our house professionally cleaned and this is something I wish we would have started earlier in our life.
89 - Drive your dream car - Do you have a dream car? I purchased our Tesla Model 3 in 2019 as a conscious decision over a Mercedes 500SL sports car which was my original dream car when I wrote this goal more than 30 years ago. I love our Tesla so much that I recently updated this goal to purchase the Tesla Roadster sometime in the future as a better reflection of a 2 seater sports car!
90 - Design your dream house - This is the ultimate outcome of reaching the level of financial success you need to afford your dream house. Decide what that is for you and take the steps you need to see this through.

Lifestyle . . . dream but also be realisticLifestyle is one of the great rewards of life for developing financial wealth. The good news is that you can cultivate a good lifestyle on a modest income.
Some of you are content with a simple lifestyle. Some of you aspire to live a grand lifestyle. Some of you go way overboard and try to live a lifestyle way beyond your means to impress your neighbours and your co-workers. It is so easy to develop that mentality as we are constantly bombarded with advertising and messaging about all the finer things in life that we should buy (fancy houses as seen on HGTV, cars as advertised in magazines, fancy clothes seen in magazines and in shopping malls, etc.).
It’s important to develop a realistic and healthy attitude towards all of this so that you are not living to "keep up with the Joneses", which is an expression about buying stuff to impress your neighbours. It is more important to me that I impress "myself", purchasing and doing things that make me feel good, irrespective of others opinions.
At the 100 Goals Club, there are 10 goals specifically for Travel. While travel is considered part of your lifestyle goals, reference the separate goal section for the recommended 10 travel goals, which can equally be considered an integral part of lifestyle. Unfortunately, travelling is expensive, especially when airline tickets are involved.
An important message is to live the best lifestyle you can, or aspire to, but within your means. If you aspire to a great lifestyle, use the 100goalsclub.com site to help on how to improve your lifestyle; record what that means for you, and work on your personal development, financial, and career goals to increase your wealth to support it.
It could be 15, 20 or more years before you can afford and start living the lifestyle you aspire to.
Some personal reflection . . .My wife Kathy and I are enjoying the results of living the principles taught at the 100 Goals Club, writing down our goals before turning 30.
We are now living in our dream house across from a park and steps to Lake Ontario in one of the top cities in Canada.
We own a cottage a one hour drive away on a beautiful Lake Erie with two buildings, a Lake House and a Beach House.
We purchased a lifestyle heritage loft resort condo which should be ready 2-3 years from now in a premier harbour location near Niagara On the Lake. We plan on buying our own Ranger Tug boat, to cruise Lake Ontario and take over night trips.
We've traveled the world extensively and will continue to do so.
We are the lucky ones and don't take any of it for granted. We have worked hard for this.
The stuff at the 100 Goals Club is real. Life goals work . . . but only if you work them!
I am using the 100 Goals Club platform to help you build the type of lifestyle you aspire to as part of my giving back and legacy goals Learn as much as you can and visit often.
Goal Achievement Tip . . . PresentI've just finished reading my next book as part of my goal to read 7 books this year.
----------- THE PRESENT, Spencer Johnson, MD "The Gift that Makes Your Happy And Successful At Work and In Life" -----------
Patrick Spencer Johnson was an American physician and author. He was known for the ValueTales series of children's books, and for his 1998 self-help book Who Moved My Cheese?, which recurred on the New York Times Bestseller list, on the Publishers Weekly Hardcover nonfiction list.
Spencer is most famous for authoring the book “Who Moved My Cheese?” having sold 28 million copies since it was published in 1998.
This book is truly a must read for anyone finding them self living too much in the past or the future. In fact, I'd go as far to say this book is a MUST READ for everyone!
This is a small (but impactful) book with just ~100 easy to read pages.
This book was a great inspirational "re-read" (I read this book a couple of decades ago) from one of the best personal development authors of our time.
Lifestyle goals are of limited value until you learn to live in accordance with "THE PRESENT".
