Actually, maybe this way:
R = I want this in retirement
B = I want this BEFORE retirement
X = I don't care if it is before or during retirement

|Get a Master's degree (perhaps PhD) in Music||B||1|
|Exercise interests in music, writing, cooking, vegetarianism, minimalism, reading, investing||B||3|
|Buy/build a house that suits my creative needs||B||1|
|Have some sort of self-sufficient house (solar or wind power) if I can handle or hire for the upkeep||X||1|
That's interesting. Most of my goals are before I retire. Two thoughts come to mind.
1) Does that mean that I'll still want to do the same things in retirement that I want to do now or in my 40s?
2) Does that mean I cannot see that far into the future to be realistic?
Hmmm. Maybe I need to re-evaluate my goals toward retirement. Or not.
