Bucket List 100

Many years ago, I made myself a “bucket list.” A bucket list, for the uninitiated, is a list of experiences that one would like to do before they die. While that may sound a bit morbid, it gives people the opportunity to live happy and fulfilling lives.

Below is my list consisting of 100 items. I grouped my goals into three segments: learnaccomplish, and travel. I did this because I think it’s worth noting that the stuff I attempted to learn/still am learning are works in progress. For instance, I think it would be disingenuous for me to say I accomplished being a surfer when I have put considerable work into learning said craft but still have a ways to go.

Note: the stuff in bold are items I have done

I think achieving some of the goals on my list really has brought my joy over the years (even though the training/preperation can be very grueling). I strongly believe the challenge of hard work makes me more appreciative about life and gives me a broader perspective on how to relate to people. Plus, there’s nothing more fun in life than scratching an item off the old bucket list.

As my site continues to evolve, I hope to accomplish more of my goals for you to read and to perhaps blog and inspire some of you to go out and try some of the things I’ve achieved.

So that’s my list. What about you? Do you have your own? Feel free to share in the comments.
