I love working on my life list. Do you have one?
It’s a compilation of the things you wish to experience, accomplish, and/or attain (a.k.a. your dreams). I wrote my first official LL about 4-5 years ago. It’s been neat seeing how many things have been checked off since then.
Here are a few of the highlights…
1- I’ve visited Boston in the fall.
2- I have seen the pandas in the San Diego Zoo.
3- I have toured Washington D.C.
4- I drink 8 glasses of water everyday.
It’s also exciting to see the ones that are about to happen very soon…
1- I have enjoyed the magnitude of the Grand Canyon. I especially enjoyed riding a horse in the Grand Canyon. (September)
2- The JBiRD iNK corporate office is a unique space that is fun, trendy and energetic. (August)
3- I read for an hour everyday and watch no more than four hours of TV each week. (currently making this a habit)
4- I exercise for 20 minutes everyday- no excuses. (currently making this a habit)
What’s even more fun is visioning and reading over the things on the list that may take a bit longer to accomplish…
1. I own a pontoon boat and enjoy leisurely afternoons on the lake with my family.
2. I have been on an African safari.
3. The Kim & Jason Make-A-Wish Benefit raises over $100,000 a year.
4. Jason and I have been guests on the Oprah show.
I checked something off of my LL last week while in Door County, WI.
Create something using a pottery wheel.
It was even cooler than I had imagined! There is something exhilarating about accomplishing something on your LL. It’s a rush! You’ll see my enthusiasm up close in a future episode of Escape Plan TV: Door County.
So, what are you waiting for?
It’s time to take the steps necessary to make a LL, and if you already have one then it’s time to update it. As Jason and I talked about during our most recent podcast, only 1% of all people write down their goals. Writing your goals down creates a subconscious accountability. There is a direct link between accomplishing your goals and having them written down.
You need to start writing them down.
