Life List 1-50

I have decided it is time to build a life list.  A list of goals to aim for between now and the day I die.  I have decided to be out-of-my-mind, because I am so why not, and aim high.  I was born in 1983, so I want a life list of 1,983 things on it.  Do I think I’ll accomplish them all?  Probably not, but these give me things to strive for in life.  And the ones I am able to accomplish, well it will be well documented what I’ve done with me life.

Some of these are basic, easily obtainable or else my list would be even more intimidating than it otherwise might be.

Some of these have my dreams soaring to their outer limits.

But combined they are a wonderful compilation of what life is about.  Obtainable goals that I don’t want to forget to aim for and celebrate, as well as soaring dreams to keep me reaching high.

My list is nowhere near complete.  How could it be?  But here is a collection of what I’ve dreamed up thus far.

  1. That's quite a list. There are a lot on it that you can certainly do. I would start with them first. It might be kind of fun to make my own list. I don't know how many I could think of. Of course I have a shorter time frame then you do. Good luck on doing all you can.
