If you follow me on Twitter, chances are you've seen me mention Go Mighty. From their website, "Go Mighty is a place to outline your goals and dreams, track your progress toward checking them off, and find inspiration to challenge your personal status quo." It's more than a life list, it's a support system. It's pretty darn awesome, and something you will definitely hearing more about in this place.
Now, let's back track a little. What is a life list, exactly? A life list is essentially a more optimistic take on a bucket list. It's a combination of goals, both large an small that you would like to accomplish and experience. It's putting those "one day I should..." or "tomorrow I will..." or "wouldn't it be amazing if..." down on paper. A life list gives your dreams a voice. And by sharing those dreams you'd be surprised how much support you'll find. This isn't a list to beat yourself up over, it's a chance to grow. Maybe a year from now some of those goals will change, priorities will shift, and that's okay! The list is just the beginning.
I've been keeping a life list for at least five years now, and maybe even a little longer. It's been a game changer for me. Putting pen to paper has helped me see where my priorities are, it's helped me do things I never would have thought I was capable of. I very much recommend it. And that brings me to this: Do you have a life list? Are you sharing your stories on Go Mighty? Because I want to see. I want us to be able to inspire each other, to cheer each other on. I want 2013 to be a year of change, of growth, and I want that for you too. I'm tired of my personal status quo, aren't you?
