The meme continues today.

It started with Jayme Soulati, then with Gini Dietrich and then with Michèle Simpson. I also saw Jason Konopinski and Hajra Kvetches share their list.

So, in no particular order, here are the 20 things I want to do before I die:

  1. Start up a non-profit organization
  2. Start up my own company
  3. Become a CEO
  4. Backpack across Europe
  5. Have kids
  6. Complete an ironman, preferably the one in Hawaii
  7. Tour Niagara on the lake, preferably on my bike
  8. See the Great Wall of China
  9. Climb a big mountain, either Mount Everest or Mount Kilimanjaro
  10. Open up my own bakery or antique shop
  11. Write a book
  12. Get a PhD
  13. Teach at the university or college level
  14. Complete the Camino de Santiago
  15. Complete one of the big marathons, either New York or Boston
  16. Travel to Africa
  17. See the pyramids in Egypt
  18. Re-learn Chinese by travelling to Beijing
  19. Learn a fifth language (I already speak English, French, Spanish and very beginner Chinese)
  20. Get married to my sweet heart (we are almost there)

What about you? What do you want to do before you die?

  1. I so love this inspiration being carried forth to peeps I’ve now had the pleasure of meeting! Thank you so very much for pushing this forward! Your list is classic; following the pathway of we others in learning, travel and love. Thanks, Kristine!

  2. Wow! Bakery or antique shop, I didn’t know that!! Do you need a helper? LOL
    Great list btw….I can see you doing all these things too!

  3. No thank you Jayme for starting this little inspiration. It has force so much of us to physically write down our dreams. Now that they are written down, it seems almost permanent. I have hope that I will complete my list 🙂
