I had no goals or intentions when I started getting more hardcore about minimalism. I knew I wanted less Stuff, and I now have less Stuff. But a big part of this for me is about clothes. Not too long ago, I fled an apartment in the night, because of a crazy roommate. Not too long after that, I moved 700 miles via 4 suitcases and 3 (big) UPS boxes. I want to be able to grab my most important belongings at a moments notice and be in the wind. I have no plans to do this, but I like the idea that I could. Because of that, I recently decided on a completely arbitrary goal: I want my entire closet to fit into a single carry-on.
I started using Google Plus about a month ago, as an experiment to see how it compares to FaceBook and Twitter as a social networking site. I use a lot of different social networking sites, but most of them are for very specific things.
