I've decided to get rid of any unnecessary fluff goals which, at the moment, just seem to serve as extra padding but aren't entirely realistically achievable, given my current schedule. So I'm going to streamline, streamline, streamline, baby!

Anyhow, I can always revisit old goals later that I've temporarily tucked out of sight for lack of time. It's more important right now to present a succinct & cohesive plan geared for success!
