Day 100 – Before You Die!

Was looking at things that are related to the number 100 and there seems to be a lot of lists, 100 best books/movies, etc.. But the major one seems to be the list of 100 things to do before you die, inspired by the movie The Bucket List. The list below is from Grant Thorpe, a motivational coach, and they wouldn’t exactly be my goals but its a good place to start looking at what is personally important to achieve. I was also thinking if someone 100 years ago had written a list what similar things would be on it to people nowadays and the same with people in 100 years time if they saw our lists! What would we have in common and what goals are specific to this time that we’re living in? Anyway have a look at Grant’s list and write your own!
