100 Exciting Things I Want to Do Before I Die4 min read

I urge you to think about 100 things to do before you die. Living without a vision is simply a waste of time. If you don’t get up every morning pumped up with energy to make your day the most amazing one, you don’t have an exciting life goals list.

This post is a result of inspiring chat I had with Allie Hutchington at Ohio State University. Before I met Allie, I was familiar with the “bucket list” or “list of things I want to do before I die” concept but never took the time to sit and write down my life goals.

Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build. – Robert Collier

Allie shared her own list and suggested me to check Tal Gur’s life goals list that sparked my curiosity to find out what I truly want to achieve in life. Forming this list took me a couple of days of thinking, brainstorming and rewriting until I could finally call it my “100 things I want to do before I die” list.

    This list seems a bit selfish and materialistic. Pursuing money will never lead to anything good regardless of the reasons behind it. Luxury possessions are a complete waste of money and serve no practical use aside from inflating an already over inflated ego.

    • Jeanine Joy says:

      Being judgmental is stressful. Stress kills. <<< These are evidence-based statements.

      If you don't think it is selfish to consider your own health, you might want to think about how you're approaching life.
