Goal Setting with Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAGs)
A workshop outline—great idea for training

My BHAGs are:

  • Revolutionize computer science education by making it highly
    individualized and experiential.
  • Become a world-famous expert on creating systems for planning one’s
    life. Instead of pushing a particular methodology, I’d like to work
    with people’s current ways of planning, suggesting improvements and
    software/hardware to support their life.
