100 Things To Do List

Those who know me will know I make, constantly update, and try and follow my 100 things to do list. I have told people bits, but I don't think I have ever actually put the list up anywhere.

I call it a '100 things to do list', as I don't yet have a better name. I will not call it a bucket list, and there will be more than 100 things eventually. Things are placed in at random positions, so there may be numbers missing.

Items on the list are things that either I want to achieve, grown up thinking I couldn't achieve or wanted to achieve, things that I find meaningful, things that when I think about or hear of make me feel good, but most of all, it must be possible, and if all were completed and I die, I would feel I lived a full life.

In my lifetime I aim to complete them all. Occasionally things may change number, but should never be deleted (unless now deemed impossible due to things beyond my control).
