Hehe. Simple. Post your goal(s) in life. :)

As for me:

-Go to college to study mechanical engineering.
-Become a professional paintball player.
-After retiring from paintball, start a paintball company that designs and manufactures paintball markers & other paintball related products.

This past year (my freshman year) my friend made it to the varsity team. He could dunk on seniors and he's like 5'7. He has a crazy vertical. I'm sure you can pull it off. He commits atleast 3-4 hours a day playing at his house just shooting hoops. It's crazy. =/

Holy ****. I'm 5'11'' and I can't even touch the rim.
Pretty good jump shooter though. I've been told all my basketball career that I have the best jump shot.

In a perfect world, mine would be to play pro or semi-pro hockey.

In a realistic world...
To become some sort of Pilot, be it Medivac, Corporate, or Airline Pilot, and possibly open my own low cost airline.
