I was recently inspired to create my own Bucket List. I realized that there was no turning back the clock to recapture the years that are had lost.
We all have issues with regret and a lack of reason for being in our lives. Many of us feel like we are just floundering along.
I came across the same concept in Laura Vanderkam’s book, “168 hours – You Have More Time Than You Think“. In her book, Vanderkam talks about Caroline Ceniza-Levine a career counselor to youth specializing in helping them realize what they want to be when they grow up. Vanderkam tells how Ceniza-Levine often requires her clients to complete a list of 100 dreams.
Write Down Your 100 Goals
Writing down a list of 100 goals that you would like to do or accomplish in your lifetime is surprisingly hard but well worth the effort.
The exercise helps you find out what you love to do, helps you find out more about yourself, helps you find your passion, helps you narrow down your passions to help you find out what you want to be when you “grow up”, and can really give you drive in your life.

Below is my part of my list of 100 Goals (or Dreams) to accomplish before I die. It took me a while to sit and think about them and to write them all down, but it was an awesome exercise!
I challenge you all to write out your own list of 100 Goals. The lined through goals are the ones that have already been completed. Did I miss any that you really want to accomplish? Are there any really awesome ones that I’m missing and should add? Be sure to leave a comment in the comment section below…
