As I was browsing for some inspiration to write an article, I came across this very interesting topic called “Life List” or also known as “Bucket List” or “Things To Do Before I Die“. There is this inspiring and infamous story of a then 15-year old boy, John Goddard, who came up with things that he wanted to do before he died, and he came up with 127 of them!

One rainy afternoon an inspired 15-year old boy named John Goddard sat down at his kitchen table in Los Angeles and wrote three words at the top of a yellow pad, “My Life List.” Under that heading he wrote down 127 goals. Since then he has completed 109 of those goals. These were not simple or easy goals. They included climbing the world’s major mountains, exploring from source to mouth the longest rivers of the world, piloting the world’s fastest aircraft, running a mile in five minutes and reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica.

And after looking at several more smashing articles on the topic, I’ve decided to come up with my own. It’s the same thing with all of us, there are things that we all have been dreaming or trying to at least have a go at it once. Be it running the New York Marathon, or go Bungee Jumping, or visit the Pyramids. We all have those things that we hope to accomplish. And so do I!

What’s the name of my life list then? Do I come up with some super-name (like what?) or simply just use the generic ones that a lot of folks have been using (Life List, Things To Do, etc)? I’m not creative so might as well use the name my Life List.

Go to my Life List where I hope to update it often enough. Do you have one? Why not start now? Here are some of the links that might help you out:
