I am looking for a single word or term that describes "competences I want to acquire" or "skills I want to learn".
This stands opposite to "things I already know or can do", as in "my competences" and "my skills"; which are things I already learned. Opposite to that, are the things I still want to learn.
Objectives, and Goals come to mind, but to me (being a non-native English speaker) those don't entirely fit, I might be wrong. Goal seems more of a target, a 'place' where I want to end up. And objective is far broader, it can be used for "skills I want to learn" but also for "today's objective is to finish before 5".
