Goal #4: To rule the world

My dream to rule the world began when I was a young child with much smaller aims. I can vividly recall the start of my dream: While taking a cross-country road trip with my family, I noticed that there was a gap between the”Now Leaving [blank] State” and “Welcome to [blank] State” signs. I asked my father who owned that bit of the country, and if no one did, can anyone claim it for their own. His reply was, essentially, I don’t know, but I suppose someone could make a claim to the land. Which was, likely, a way to cease the line of questions for which curious young children are often known.

With Dad’s answer, I began to think about the state I would start, and the logistics of visiting people in your state if it was essentially a winding network of land, maybe 3-20 feet wide, around the nation. As I grew up, I began to think of ways to trade that winding network off so that eventually I’d have a larger, more well-connected land mass to call “the State of Frances.” Thoughts of how I would govern my new state soon led to thoughts of how I would govern the nation. As the years went on, I realised that there was no reason to stop there and I decided to go for total world domination.

I don’t really have any task lists for this goal yet. But I’m sure they will develop over time!
