The Challenge List
I thought long and hard about taking the easy route on this post and just calling it a bucket list like everyone else does.
But you know what, I don't just want my personal list to be chock full of things that I could achieve by maxing out my credit card or taking out a loan. After all anyone can visit Hawaii if they really want to.
After rattling on about the importance of setting goals recently, I decided that I wanted my list to be made up of things which would require some effort on my part.
That way I will ,hopefully, feel a sense of genuine achievement with each one I am able to cross off.
To make life easier for myself (plus to make this a little more interesting for you!) I have broken my challenges into categories and will be crossing them off and adding to them on what I hope will be a regular basis.
If I achieve something particularly awesome or interesting I might even write a post about it...won't that be fun!
