A goal or target you have recently set

Model Answer:
Interestingly, during my high school years, I had set some goals for my life, but, despite my best efforts, I am yet to achieve some of those tough goals. So, I recently thought that it was time to set a few new goals and try to achieve them instead. Today, I would like to talk about one of those goals.

I want to get involved in gardening. In fact, I want to grow a simple but nice-looking lychee garden from scratch and all by myself. Of course, on the face of it, growing a lychee garden, or for that matter, any kind of garden, just might not sound that exciting or glamorous as a “goal”, but it can certainly be exciting if you are into enjoying raw nature.

Now, if you are wondering why I have chosen “growing a lychee garden” as my goal, my answer would probably be that it would allow me to be a bit more “productive” outside of my regular professional life, which I was lacking during all those previous years. Besides, achieving this goal would also be a bit financially rewarding.

Having all that said, however, I am very much aware of the fact achieving this goal is not going to be easy by any means, but I am more confident than ever, with all the “free” time I have in my hand, that I would be able to ace it sooner rather than later. Oh, by the way, by saying “free” time, I mean to say that I don’t really have to spend as much time at my regular job now as before, which certainly has made my life much easier than before.

Anyway, setting this goal was important to me, primarily because it would allow me to try some channels of income, as I find my current profession of “accounting” a bit more boring than before. Besides, it would also allow me to get closer to mother nature and thus become more healthy, both physically and mentally.
