I'm going to be 40 soon. I mean, not soon-soon, like next week or anything. But soon enough.
Specifically, I will turn 40 in
- 1291 days; or
- 3 years, 6 months, 14 days; or
- 42 months, 14 days; or
- 922 weekdays; or
- 3.54 years.
After writing a post a few days ago about setting reasonable goals, I started to wonder how I could blow that completely out of proportion and turn a simple to do list into a completely stress-inducing endeavor.
And that's how I came up with the idea of making one of those 40 By 40 lists. You know what I'm talking about, a list of 40 things I'd like to accomplish by the time I turn 40. As you can see, I have some time, but really not that much when I think about getting 40 things done.
I have about a dozen or so things on it so far. I want to make sure it's a good list, filled with things that matter to me. I want it to help me grow as a person and feed my spirit.
I am hoping to publish the list in the next couple days and then start working towards the goals. I will check in with you all on them so you'll know if I'm living up to the goals I set. Some will be concrete and measurable and some that I have in mind won't be so clear cut. Some are going to be vague for now until I figure out exactly what they mean.
I'm excited about this project because it involves two of my favorite things: making lists and stressing out about things on my lists. OK, I don't really enjoy stressing (though some people reading this would argue vehemently that I do!), but I do enjoy a good challenge.
I hope you'll follow along with me on this little adventure!
