I created this list on Friday, July 30th, 2011 after reading an article similar to the one found here . In the exercise I completed, I had 15 minutes to create a list of 100 things to do before I die. I actually followed the directions and this was what I came up with. 15 minutes does not give you a lot of time to think, nor did I have the guidance from the article I just found for you guys. Regardless, it became the first step in leading the life I wanted to live. If you’re at the point where you’re realizing you’re not the astronaut movie star you thought you would be, I highly recommend doing this.
