We have all heard about the movie The Bucket List: Two terminally ill men(Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman) escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die.

I fell in love with Tim McGraw’s song “Live like you were Dying“, who wouldn’t he is HOT…. but back to my point.  There are a lot of people saying, telling, knowing that we should all be living like were dying.  Like every second is your last one….

BUT do we?!?!?!?  I know there are many many seconds in the day where I am just trying to make it through

About a year and half a go, maybe even two years, I learned about Yanik Silver’s How to Create Your Own Ultimate Life List, great little workbook that starts you on the path to thinking about just what you want to do in a few different areas.   Keep in mind, lists grow and change just like you do, don’t worry about making changes and updates as you need to!  Most importantly have fun AND think bigger!

There are more things but this is what I have for now… now it is time to get my butt in gear to get some of them done!    There is definitely two major sections for me… do some MAJOR traveling and then work on the Retreat Center.

The Traveling section starts with “Debt Free” and “Money in savings”, as well as creating a “Location Independent Income”, then I start the traveling!  I am definitely going to be talking about this more as I start getting stuff together and working out the details.  It should be a fun adventure!  I would love to hear from you, if you have gone down this path already and have some advice to give… pop over to my Facebook page
