Episode 5 – Living Your Life And Completing Your Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list? Do you have a list of goals that you want to complete before you die? I sure do. I have talked a lot about my 100 Goals Before I Die and trying to complete them.

The problem is that most of us simply write out a bucket list and then make excuses as to why we haven’t check many items off it or any items at all for that matter. It doesn’t have to be that way though.

Without clear goals in life, we tend to drift along until we reach the awful realisation that life may be passing us by.

Great idea for Adam to write a book on following his dreams. From time to time, we all need inspiration to help us do the same.

I agree with David above. I sometimes catch myself realizing that I have been in a groove (rut) for months just going day to day, hand to mouth. I am looking forward to reading this reminder to live life!



Seems like a great book! Would love to have it. Thanks!



It’s past time to start checking things off my list! I’d love to have a copy of this book. Thank you!



Good on Adam to have followed his dreams .Nothing beats the high one gets from achieving d goals for both personal life and your career.

I’m looking forward to reading Adam’s latest book. He has way of writing that makes one want to keep reading. In his first book “Scratch Beginnings” Adam sought out to prove that the American dream was still alive. I won’t give away the ending but it was an enthralling journey. In sure this book will take the reader on another great journey, but this time around the world.



Looking forward to reading this book!



I’m stuck in doing the “responsible ” things….this might be the push I need. Thank you ahead of time!



Sounds like a great book. Looking forward to reading it!



I am excited to read this! I think we all need a little motivation to really follow our dreams.



Great idea’s on life goal achievements. Count me in!



Count me in!



I’m working on a bucket list, but sometimes I get overwhelmed wondering how I could ever do all the things I would like to. In the end, you just have to go for it and enjoy life.
