A short term is something you want to do in the near future. The near future can mean today, this week, this month, or even this year. A short-term goal is something you want to accomplish soon. Mid-term goals usually happen after you’ve graduated college, secured a job and really started a job you like but before you start dreaming about your career and your day-to-day retirement schedule for when your working career is over. A long-term goal is something you want to do further in the future. Long-term goals require time and planning. They are not something you can do this today or this week or even this year. Long-term goals usually take several years or more to achieve.

There are many types of goals in life, but I will take it one step at a time. First off, let me start with my short term goals. Currently I hope to graduate from college within three years. I plan to get my AA in Administration of Justice so I can further improve my chances for my long term goals. Also, I hope in my time in college I can lose some weight so that I can further pursue my goals that require me to be in a better physical shape. Also I hope to be able to find a short term job that hopefully I will enjoy and can help me sustain financial success while in college.

Next I would like to talk about my midterm goals. Firstly after college I’d like to pursue a job in the Air Force. It was always a dream of mine to join the Military but it wasn’t till only a few months ago that I had decided on the Air Force. I hope for a job in the Military Police faction of the Air Force. Hopefully I can get stationed overseas preferably in Japan or South Korea I have always wanted to visit there.

Now for me to talk about my long term goals. Firstly After I get out of the Air Force I’d like to move out of California as it is getting too expensive to live here and find a job in law enforcement. Secondly I hope I can move to a sparsely populated state like Montana, Idaho, or the Dakotas I always liked living around small populations. Wherever I end up moving to I hope to get a job as a police officer or a sheriff's deputy really whichever one would pay better would be best. Hopefully I can work for twenty plus years and then I’d like to open a sports bar, Many of my family members have run businesses and I feel like I’d have a knack for it.

Now for what I am doing currently to accomplish said goals. For my short term goal I am proud to say that I am doing well in of all my classes and will continue to do so until I graduate. My midterm goal heavily relies on my objective to get into better physical shape, which I try to accomplish by eating healthier and going to the gym six days a week. Unfortunately accomplishing my long term goals will be more difficult, however I am doing good in AOJ but I cannot predict which state or city I will be living in to study the police jobs in the area.

Now these are the goal that I hope I can do with my life. I know it will be hard and there will plenty of obstacles in my way. But I have always been one to accept a challenge and greatly look forward to overcoming said challenge. I hope that after reading this I have enlightened you to all my goals to your liking. I will continue to work hard to achieve my goals and will hopefully accomplish them soon.
