Long term goals

I've been reading The Psychopath Whisprer recently by Kent Kiehl where he describes what that trait means.
Here we are concerned with whether the individual can make realistic plans for the future, stick to goals, and carry them out. Charles failed on all attempts. His plans for the future were always misguided and often grandiose (see Item 2). At various times Guiteau had applied to be the minister to Austria, consul to Liverpool, and consul-general to Paris, yet he had no real hope of ever obtaining such posts. Guiteau planned to (re)marry rich, telling his former wife he had numerous wealthy women at his beck and call and, once married, would be in a position to pay her the alimony to which she was so deservedly entitled. Several years prior to the assassination, he wrote the following letter to then–General Garfield:
Dear General: I, Charles Guiteau, hereby make application for the Austrian Mission. Being about to marry a wealthy and accomplished heiress of this city, we think that together we might represent this Nation with dignity and grace. On the principle of first come first served, I have faith that you will give this application favorable consideration. CHARLES GUITEAU.


Do you have any future goals or maybe future hopes? What are they?

I have great ideas with good intentions, but by the following day I've lost interest.

most people that i know go through life in autopilot mode
and then when they are lost and you question their beliefs they are like -eh, lets see whats on tv
they believe that thinking is not their responsibility
i call it dumb hedonism

I'd like to become a criminal King Pin in the underbelly of society and gut it from the inside out.

Failing that, travel to the US (preferably first class), go on a road trip, 'meet' some people and have a whole lot of fun.

My impression is that they don't think about things in depth because they don't have to.

Consider this forum: we discuss stuff here in more detail and with more interest that most others,
because we have to.

If you're naturally able to coast through life, you might not do it with ease, but you can do it without thinking through processes that are second nature.

Not having these natural processes requires you to consider each interaction, each unforeseen interpersonal problem, every mistake with an elusive reason.

I've mentioned that I'd like to have a regular conscience; to be able to feel remorse. Why? How much easier would it be to not have to think and consider each interaction as to how it will be received?

How much simpler would life be to simply "do what feels right" and not find that it's naturally destructive.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.
