100 Exciting Things I Want to Do Before I Die

I invite you to think about 100 things to do before you die.
100 Exciting Things I Want to Do Before I Die

Living without a vision is a waste of time (or at least it's more boring than having exciting stuff to do).

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 an inspiring chat I had with Helene Schmit in Hubud, a co-working space in Ubud, a little jungle town in Bali, Indonesia.

Before I met Helene, 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

Helene 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.
