50 things before I’m 50

50 things before I’m 50

Having been inspired by one of my wonderful Clients @juliet-mcdermott for her brilliant idea, I have decided to compose my list of 50 things to achieve before I’m 50. It was actually quite tough thinking of 50 things (it has taken me three months!) because I am very lucky enough to have done a lot of things in my life already. Doing this exercise was fascinating! It really focussed the mind to the possibilities in life and what is important to you. They don’t have to be big goals, they can be tiny and achieved quickly, but it does force you to be honest with yourself! Of course, I have budget constraints to take into account as well – I did have to remove ‘own a private jet!’ 😉 Plus things that are very unlikely like ‘win the lottery’ or ‘fly to the moon’. 

I have exactly 7 years left to complete this list! Some are quite big and expensive so it may take me a little while to save up! Since starting this list, I have already completed a few of them though – including getting a tattoo, something I have been thinking about for 10 years now!! 

Whatever age you are, you can give this a go too! Like with any goal though, try to keep it SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timely!

Here are mine, in the order that I thought of them. Please note the last one! You can all help me to achieve this!! 😉 If you can help me achieve any of the others then please give me a shout!
