My 30 before 30 list will be drawing to a close in less than a month. I have accomplished many of the things on the list. There are a few I won’t get around to, but I’m not worried about it. The point was to get myself to get around to actually DOING things I have been wanting to do. Stressing myself over crossing everything off a to-do list isn’t the way to go.
Once I hit the big 3-0, I’m going to start on a 40 before 40. I will probably carry over a couple unfinished things from my 30 list (see: go for hot air balloon ride). But since I’ll have 10 years to work on my 40 before 40 list, I plan to have several more grand goals. One goal I have in mind is to hike up to Macchu Pichu with Mountain Lodges of Peru (this will also involve me learning how to hike, and learning to LIKE hiking, which are no small feats for me). There will probably be several travel goals on there, and goals to take certain kinds of classes (I’d love to take some cooking classes, particularly a knife skills class). Maybe I’d even like to set a goal of learning something other than just the most rudimentary photography skills. Of course I will also set some goals related to my career, whether it involves publishing articles or benchmarks on building my own client base.
What Would You Have on your 40 Before 40 list?
