50 by 50

This is my own personal challenge inspired by a friend who was under taking his own 40@40 challenge. My challenge is to complete 50 of my bucket list goals by the age of 50. I invite you to come up with your own in a similar way. I have listed down way more than 50 goals so the challenge is not to complete all of them but as many as I can and at least 50.

I started this challenge in March 2022 when I was 43 so I was giving myself just under 7 years to get 50 of these goals checked off. You’ll notice some are really big goals, other are small fun ones easy to complete and the rest are somewhere in the middle.

Think up your own challenge, it could be 30 by 30, 20 by 70 or whatever gets you motivated and focused on taking some action to complete your goals.

As I complete my goals I will number the ones completed so anyone that’s interested can see how much progress I have made.
