The Start of The List

I never liked using the words “Resolutions” or “Goals” when describing things I want to get done for the year. Using these words makes me feel that there is no obligation to actually do them rather they’re just things that I’ll like to get done. Unsurprisingly, by the end of the year I don’t accomplish all of the things on my list.

So this year, I’m going to start calling the things on my 2015 To-Do list “Challenges”. I always love a good challenge. When there’s a difficult obstacle in my way I get a joy from training hard and pushing beyond my limits to accomplish them. I have compiled a list of stuff of 25 things I absolutely must complete by the end of this year.

I’m looking forward to crossing these things off my list.

If you are reading this, comment something that you feel you must absolutely accomplish by the end of this year. I would love to know what your challenges for this year are and what you’re planning on doing to complete them.
