What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting what you want?
I've been careful when I make out my annual new year's resolution list so that all my goals are do-able. To me, a good resolution is something that I can accomplish by myself. For example "Write a 500 page book" is a good goal. "Write a best selling novel" is a bad goal because it relies on other people for my happiness.
The biggest obstacle to getting what I want is other people. I am very dependent on them. I'd like to have sex with other guys, but if I do, it breaks my current partner's heart. I need kinky partners in order to have sex, so I need to network and email and try to make contacts. I have other obstacles from my family, my boss, and my friends. I tend to do whatever's expected of me, and use that as an excuse.
I am a cynical humanist in the mold of Kurt Vonnegut. I love other people, but they bug the hell out of me. I like to think that I'm self-sufficient and could live happily on a desert island (or in prison... but that's another story). However, I think that I'm doomed to need people. And that makes me the luckiest people in the world.
