Do you have a ‘bucket list’? A list of things to do before you die?

If you do, perhaps some of them seem a bit far fetched, or don’t actually motivate or inspire you to do anything differently on a day to day basis?

Well recently I turned…. and age close to 40 is all we’ll say, and it sparked me to undertake an exercise of making a list of ’40 things to do before I’m 40′.  I also talk about the list in a recent podcast episode.

It’s been a very interesting exercise and I encourage anyone at any time in their life to stop and think about those things that you want to do but never have.
