Things on my to-do list before I die...
Here are things that were on my list but I've since taken off:
Sounds like you're about to do #19 and we can def go do #23 together!
Awesome list! And you wrote this 7 years ago... good stuff. I feel like I need to make one of my own now...
Yeah I'd love to see it!
Taking a month-long trip through Asia is already 'done' !
I remembered your post here the other day and wrote up an initial list. Granted it was 1am, so I'm sure I'll be editing... :)
#43 on your list is an awesome idea. Highly recommended.
Let's go check some of these off together! I'd love to do #s 6, 7, 16, & 17 with you! Maybe we can get a "life list crew" together and all support each other :)
That's a great idea! If only we had a site with bucket list items, checkboxes, and integrated social sharing...
Am I feeling a #6 on your list, #35 on mine? Hahah, jk.
Don't do it... it's a disease!!! :)
I have made a sett blog about my bucketlist here sett.com/fvd I hope you guys will read along, comment, motivate, get motivated, inspire and get inspired by it. That is my idea behind the project.It seems like a lot of your points revolve around travelling, why don't you get out there at get that travelling done?
I Agree with Jay, the list evolves and priorities change. The important thing is to have the will to make such lists and be excited about life. Once you have your children, you'll have zillions lists and you'll make them with your kids to create fantastic memories. After all the best inheritance your children will have from you is the memories you create with them that are remembered with love, joy and and laughter. I am so very impressed with everything you are doing Daniel. A fellow Realtor...
Hey the Winter Olympics are in Vancouver this year so if you want to cross off #9, come hang out with us in Seattle and drive up there. :) I wish we had tickets.
You might enjoy "The Four Hour Workweek" by Timothy Ferris. His thesis is first to write this list, and then, re-structure your life in order to complete the list. Whether you do the re-structuring or not, it's full of useful tips on saving time, being effective, getting directly to decision makers, etc.
Combine 17 and 36, plus 39...
Ditch 34 (not because of danger, but Animal Welfare ;-) )
Once you conquer #3, the rest of them will be longshots at best, Daniel. Even if you're making (fill in your number) a year it's just a LOT (excuse the caps) more difficult to pull things off. I got married last year (37) and promptly adopted the 2 children (2 & 4) and we delivered another 9 1/2 months later with another in the oven now. The adventures one undertakes and wants to achieve change dramatically...i.e. teaching my princess with no hand eye coordination to play tennis or ride a bike. Maybe those other goals just get put on hold for awhile.... :)
This is a great blog and I'm now a subscriber. Noticed you're headed to bloggercon. Cool. I'll have to talk to Ben; he's been calling me.
When we became "location independent" and decided that we weren't going to stay local, we had the whole world to choose from for our first adventure. So for all the folks who have asked us, "why Costa Rica?" here are some of the factors that figured into the equation.
Cost of Living & Amenities
Buffalo, NY (where we're from) may not have a great reputation, but it's a very inexpensive place to live. Real estate is insanely cheap, there are excellent public schools to be had, traffic is minimal, food is great, there's quite a lot of theatre, arts, music, and technology if you know where to look. We were looking to lower our cost of living even from Buffalo standards, but also feel safe and have decent amenities like good schools (we're not quite ready to homeschool/unschool our 2 wee beasties), decent roads, and reliable Internet connection--which we both need for our work. Costa Rica has all that.
Where we're going to be 'landing' is Playa Coco, about 30 minutes from the newly updated Liberia airport. Jet Blue flies direct from JFK to Liberia, so the whole flight will take about the same as if we were to fly to California.
