Well, I asked for it. My re­quest for sug­ges­tions for 45 things to ac­com­plish be­fore my 45th birth­day her­alded some great ideas.

I added many to what I had al­ready con­sid­ered, and have whit­tled it down to 45 things some that scare the day­lights out of me, some that I’m re­ally ex­cited to try, and some that prom­ise to add a fair bit of fun and ex­cite­ment into my life.

One thing I have been sur­prised by has been the en­thu­si­asm which other peo­ple have greeted my plan. I may even be guilty of trig­ger­ing sim­i­lar goal-set­ting ex­er­cises in other peo­ple, which is kind of spe­cial.

While it’s a light-hearted and rea­son­ably guilt-free ex­er­cise (I’m not go­ing to be des­ti­tute if I don’t com­plete every­thing), it has spurred me on to greater and more ex­cit­ing things.

I don’t want to wait un­til I’m on my death bed be­fore I start tick­ing off my bucket list. That started last week, when I knocked one thing off my list – per­form­ing in front of an au­di­ence.

Now, what next?
