101 things to do…

Posted: 13th August 2014 by markomac in Uncategorized

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

As I write this blog, I for the life of me cant even remember what I blogged about last time. If you haven’t read that one already, go read it and let me know what its about.

 

Anyway, lets get onto the reason for this blog. (You know what, I think the last blog was about Goal Achievements…)

 

Lately, I’ve been trying really hard to set personal goals to help me achieve the things I want in life. I listed off a few goals for what I wanted to achieve throughout this year, which is all well and good, but hey, its only for this year.

 

For some reason, I got to thinking about creating a bucket list. That is the precise reason for this blog. I decided I would implement a bucket list into my life, and I have subsequently just completed writing that list. A few folks have asked me during the process about what I was putting on the list, so I thought I’d share it with you.

 

Now, years and years ago I had a book named something along the lines of ‘101 Things To Do Before You Die’. So, based on that book alone, I decided that my list should have 101 Things on it. It was a tough task, but I managed it. Now, before we get started, I just want to clarify that somethings may appear doubled up or have a very slight variation on another. I have done this as a way to stagger the goals. For example, on this list I have ‘Attend V8 Supercar Race’, which gives me the option of attending ANY V8 Supercar race around the country (which obviously is something ive never done). I then also specify ‘Attend Bathurst V8 Supercar Race’. In that regard, if I attend Bathurst as my first race, then I cross 2 items off the list.

 

So anyway, enough of the boring explanation part and lets get onto the list.
