    Was doing a Quidco Opinions survey today and thought I'd share this list with TSR to see what y'all think

    Please bear in mind that these should be treated as stand alone achievements, try not to make the intuitive link between e.g. marriage & kids, education & career

    Also, besides voting for your TOP priorities, feel free to comment specifically upon on the order of them, and/or add your own, as well as the order in which you feel you are most likely to achieve them :borat:

    Foo's ordered priorities:
    1. Achieve educational aims
    2. Get married
    3. Have children
    4. Buy a property
    5. Achieve career goals

    Foo's likely order of achievement:
    1. Achieve educational aims
    2. Get married
    3. Have children
    4. Achieve career goals
    5. Buy a property

    None of the above. I just want to enjoy my life. How am I going to do that if I am burdened with marriage, kids and a mortgage? I need money to pay for my Subaru.

    Yeah, kinda agree. None of those things are important to me.

    My priority is having happy relationships with my partner, friends and family. And achieving my best with the things I love. That does involve learning and career, but those are just necessary steps to the ultimate goal.

    To be happy I guess, at the moment it would mainly revolve around meeting new people, get to a more advanced stage career wise, have increased freedom/independence & find a partner.
