100 Life Goals


My friend Justin Popovic (Success) told me about an activity that he had heard helps people visualize their goals.  It was as simple as writing down 100 life goals you would like to accomplish.  There is no rules, you just have to write down 100 things you want to do.  The thought is, that by writing down your list – you are already well ahead of the majority of people who never write down their goals.  It adds a bit of accountability as well as helps you to actually realize what it is you want to accomplish.

Easy right?

Not so fast – I think everyone who reads this should try this challenge.  It is kind of amazing to realize just how hard it is for us to state clearly what we want.  I personally had to stop and come back to creating this list a couple times – it is much harder than anticipated.
