My Life Goals & Accomplishments
List of Things To Do Before I Die / My Bucket List

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night…wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." - T.E. Lawrence (1888 - 1935)
Sky Diving - July 2011

It is important to me to experience life to its fullest. Inspired by the famous list created by John Goddard, I have decided to create a list of my own representing my future dreams and goals that I wish to see reached by the conclusion of my life. Some of these will take a long period of time to complete, others can be completed in the short term, but with my life ahead of me, I will try to accomplish them all. At the end of the list you will find resources that will aid you in making your own list as well as a list of my life goals and accomplishments.

The list below is divided into two parts. On the left are listed are my acomplishments. On the right side are the goals I have set forth for myself that have yet to be completed. I have left no set time frame for these items to be completed, but do make yearly goals as well to encourage my progress.

  Online Resources
The following links will take you to lists created by other individuals, magazines, or websites that can be an inspiration or a guide in the process of creating your own life lists. I updated this list every 6 months since some sites are taken off line and others are created. I hope they are of use, and more will be added as they are found.

  Places to Make Your Own List
Below are websites that allow you to create your own list of things you wish to accomplish. Many of the sites also provide suggestions and allow you to look at the lists other people made. They are a helpful resource, especially if you are unable, for whatever reason, to create a site listing your goals like I have here.
