40 Before 40


Lately, I've been seeing lots of lists like this. It got me thinking of all the things I'd like to accomplish before I turn 40. I really like the idea of listing long-term goals in this way. For starters, it's nice to have everything jotted down in one spot. Plus, I like the simplicity of revisiting the list whenever motivation strikes. It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day. A list like this keeps goals in plain sight which will (hopefully) make them more achievable :)
