Forty by Forty


I may just be in love with the idea of goal setting… Maybe.

Years ago when my blog was on blogspot, I created a 30 by 30 list of things I wanted to do before I turned 30. In thinking about this list earlier this year, I decided to write a 40 by 40 list. I created this list a bit differently, though. I only put items on my list that I felt I could make happen with my initiative. Below is my list!
