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, Michaela recently turned…. and age close to 40 is all we’ll say, and it sparked her to undertake an exercise of making a list of ’40 things to do before she’s 40′. A lot of it inspired by the silly questions we ask each other at the top of the show.

These are things that will need to be ticked off in the next….ummmm, while. Let’s just say it’s less than 5 years but more than 6 months…

Anyway, it’s been a very interesting exercise and in this episode Warrick and Michaela discuss some of the things on their lists, why it’s a good idea to have one and even share their lists below!
