Love this!
I've seen so many people make goals lists and then sit idlle, not really even attempting to reach the goals. I'm happy to see your progress with this, and because I often have stereotypical Leo traits, I'm pleased to see my name on here--I'm glad to have met you and am enjoying becoming your friend.

I've been preoccupied recently, and I'm reprioritizing things in my life to make time for doing things that are just for me (not for kids, etc.), so I could use any tips you're willing to share that may help with developing an actionable goals list.

Re: Love this!
actionable goals...

How I set goals: I set goals by my desires, and figure out those with these questions. I used to set goals out of guilt or fear or shame, but not now. I have to be pulled to make something a goal, not pushed.

1) What do I most feel a lack of in my life? What do I have the most unfilled yearning for? What do I most quickly start missing when I don't have it?

2) What are some ways I could get more of those things?

3) How can I make small daily habits or once-a-week tasks out of #2's answers?

thanks! I have! not to my ideals, but good enough so far.
