- Making a
Life List means writing down everything you would really
like to do, see, experience, learn, and accomplish in your
life. Having a written visual list in front of you is the
beginning step in crafting your life the way you
envision it. Your personalized Life List portrays your
passions, your interests – it turns into your map or guide or
what I call, your PASSPORT to Everyday Adventures.

Adventures is stamped with your stimulating specific
objectives to a purpose-driven life.
really do help turn your life into an exciting adventure.
Creating a Life List dramatically boosts your
motivation level as you start to believe – "YES, I CAN AND
WILL ACCOMPLISH THESE GOALS THROUGHOUT MY LIFE."
There is great power in the written word. Energy and optimism
can explode with the enthusiasm to get started in a process to
accomplish these things one at a time. Your direction in life
becomes so much clearer.
your personal life objectives written down, your life
compass is pointing to full steam ahead!
- And of
course, our interests do change throughout our lifetime and
some of the things we may have put on our list a few years
back may now seem lame to us. This is natural as our knowledge
and our world experience expands and interests change.
Probably as an adult, the goal we wrote as a young kid on our
Life List about flying like Superman might not seem
terribly important to us now. Creating a college fund for our
new baby daughter, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, or learning
scrapbooking might replace the Superman dream.
- It's great
to make a list at any age. Here are a few real examples of
what a 7 year old boy wrote on his Life List.
- Read a
200+ page book
- Go water
something that goes in public.
- Never get
an ear infection until I'm ten.
- Eat wild
- Visit any
hall of fame for any sport
- Be in the
wear long sleeves to school on the first day
- Visit a
place on the equator
- Be a dad
- All Life
Lists are unique to the author. There are no right or
wrong goals. They are in essence, a reflection of who we are,
what kind of person we would like to be, and what small or
gigantic achievements we will strive to accomplish in the
near, distant, and far future.
