A fellow blogger and web extraordinaire Uncommon Chick wrote a post called “40 Things Before 40 List…Time to Get Started!” which is a list of 40 things she would like to accomplish by the time she’s 40 years old. At the end of the post, she challenged others to create a list as well to help them visualize their own goals. Well after days of indecision (and fright! Lol) I finally sat down and thought about some things I would like to do before I turn 40. Here they are below:
HOORAY!! I DID IT!!
Doing this list was not only fun, but it also helped me to realize some new things about myself. Looking over the list, I’m a little surprised by some things that made the list, and even more surprised by things that didn’t. It made me realize that sometimes outside influences can greatly affect what we see as important for ourselves in our lives. When we remove those influences, we’d be surprised as to what we discover is really important to us.
Have you ever created a 40 things by 40 list (or any other age)? Share with me below or tell me about it at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

What a great list. This would have to be my list before I’m 50! LOL Go to Seattle. It’s where I’m from and it’s so amazing! So much to do. I live in MN and the Mall of America is pretty amazing! Right by the airport, too! Ikea pretty much shares the same parking lot. I want to visit all of New England. I love horseback riding and I’d love to have a horse again. Would love to go to the Super Bowl. You’ve never held a garage sale? We love driving cross country. Have done it a number of times. =) I think taking each of your kids to a new city is a cool idea! I love gardening and driving a stick shift is my favorite! I could absolutely improve on your last point! Fun activity! Good for you!
Greetings! Thank you so much and a 50 by 50 list sounds like a great idea! ~Thank you so much for commenting!
This is a great list.
I’ve read that people who make lists of goals accomplish so much.
Good luck to you and enjoy the journey!
Greetings: Yes having a list of your goals is a great way to make sure you stay on task and get more accomplished. I’m looking very forward to the journey. ~Thank you so much for commenting!
I did a list for myself during the summer of things I wanted to accomplish before fall started. It was a big help.
I need to expand my timeline.
