You're right, especially for the items I have in that list.

Although my concern (and a risk to the project) is that important 
responsibilities that people take or were given (if the interest or time 
fades, which is understandable) volunteers report back that they cannot 
fullfil what is expected. All too often you see in projects that people 
silently disappear creating big problems that are difficult to avoid or 

That's why (for the team members) I think it is important to also list the 
responsibilities they have so it is clear (to them and others) what is 
important and cannot be sillently ignored.

But that's definitely what my list is showing. The only responsibility I 
think I currently have is the Newsletter.

Right. It's hard to make a distinction between TODO, Interests or Goals 
really. To me "Interests" is why you are involved with the project (maybe 
your motivation), "Goals" is a high-level view of where you want to go, 
"TODO" is a low-level lists of reaching your Goals.

I can see that all of this is not as clear as it ought to be. Maybe I 
should be googling for "carreer planning" and "personal development" 
content and see how they approach this.

My lists definitely is listing goals.
