One of the most frustrating experiences that I have ever had in my life, was knowing that I wasn't in control of it. Knowing that because I have not aimed my bow high, forcefully, into the direction that I wanted my arrow to travel has caused this, has lead me to so many low-points of my life.

When you get caught up in the whirlwind of life challenges, tasks, and responsibilities. It seems almost impossible that you will ever achieve what you set out to in the first place. One day you feel like you're on track to dominating your first set of tasks and goals, the next day you can't even figure out how to tie your shoes. It can be that debilitating.

So one of the best ways to accomplish a goal, is to stay on track, and the best way to do that, is to create a list. If you want to get anywhere in life. You simply have to take the first step, but you cannot take a step if you're unsure of what direction you want to head in.

To make it more evident, and clear, i've come up with a life list of my own, to start heading in the direction I want.

What is a Life List?

A life list is a compilation of everything you want to accomplish in your life, almost like a bucket list. This is somewhat of a living document, which I use to keep track of my life list, as well as maybe even provide you with some inspiration for yours. So you will see occasional updates from time to time.
