Bucket List – To Do

Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. –W. Clement Stone


I have had many ‘must do’ goals in my life which I did and love that I got the chance to experience this amazing world, but you should never be satisfied or think you are done.  You are done when your life is over.  I have more life to experience.

These are my bucket list or must do list which is always evolving! I created this more formal online list during August 2014 but I had an informal list in my mind since the early 1990s.  The experiences I have completed are listed here, I’ve been very fortunate.

My friends and travels usually inspire new ideas so this list is constantly changing, life is limitless!
