Short term is today, maybe this week. Long term is before I leave the planet, the bucket list.
Somethings you realize that you have already crossed off somethings on the bucket list, like in my case ridin' the Harley from Coast to Coast and up into Canada... in 3 different trips. Others are buildin' a custom truck from an old rusty 4 X 4 Chevy. which I intend to finish this spring.
Short term is one piece at a time, a little here and there like taking small bites out of the apple. If you don't go to sleep with a plan for the next day, you may not have one, it depends on how you are structured. You may be able to wake up and formulate a plan for the day, if that works for you great!
I've been retired about 16 years and if I don't accomplish something each day, I don't feel good about it. ... even if it's having lunch with a buddy and sharing stories of the good old days at work or accomplishments on the custom truck.
If you have collections they offer fun trips to look for more stuff, better stuff etc. Sometimes it's just nice to go over what you have and reacquaint yourself with the stuff you have. Tools are like that as are knives and firearms. Old photos can be a "trip" back into the past and they stir up memories.
If all you are doing is knocking out "projects" I think it will get tiring or boring, so mix in doing things that are really satisfying. Best to you.
