Life List

I’ve made a lot of references to my Life List without actually sharing it. I’ve been working on it for a while and still feel it’s not quite done. But I suppose that’s the nature of Life Lists isn’t it? I think my goals 10 years ago are vastly different than mine today and will be 10 years from now. But I do think it’s pretty neat to catalog them all in one place.

I originally learned of Life Lists from Mighty Girl, who has had several items on her Life List sponsored by some big companies. She hosts a site called Go Mighty which allows people to share and collaborate on their Life Lists. I encourage you to create one and I’d love to hear a few of your biggest goals!
