It needs to look forward and say things like:

Any Real Short term Plans (i.e. College, Military).

Make sure Merit badges are updated on Troopmaster/Scoutbook and on Scoutnet. Do NOT rely on the automatic sync between Scoutbook and Scoutnet – found to not be always reliable.

Get a copy of your Individual Progress Report from Troopmaster/Scoutbook.
Make sure your Merit Badge sash is up to date. Do not wait for next Court of honor for last few MBs.
