100 Life Goals

100 Things in life I want to achieve

After reading my last post “26 Life Lessons To Learn by 26” my friend proposed that I do this list of 100 life goals. After some research I realized I have no idea who actually started it, since there seems to be at least a few people who run entire websites on this concept. I took help from the Fully Lived and Antwon Davis‘ websites to understand the concept and to help me create a categorized list of life goals that I can use as a reference later on when I need a reminder or when I’m (hopefully) ticking things off the list. So why am I doing this and why should you?

100 Things in life I want to achieve

Too many times we forget to write down the things we want to do and achieve in life and they only exist abstractly in our minds. We’re all human and therefore we tend to both lose focus and plainly forget. And you know what? I think you should do this list of 100 life goals too! It will help you see the things you want in life as concrete things and it’s like sort of making a contract with yourself. You promise yourself that you will work a little every day to achieve your life goals and no matter if it takes a year (wow, congratulations!) or a life time, you have something to work towards. Goals makes life way more interesting and also makes life worth living. As a last thing I will say that don’t treat this as something that have to be set in stone – things change, people change, lives change, you change, and that is okay. Use it as inspiration in your daily life, use it to remember what your goals are and to figure out what you want from your life. Good luck with your list! ❤️

End note: It was a bit harder than I thought to come up with 100 life goals, but in the end I had to cut out a few and prioritize the important goals in the end. My tip to finish this list is to take a few days at least to think about it (I took nearly two weeks) and then start categorizing them. Write down the ones that are the most obvious to you and then start writing the ones you have to think about. Try and be as specific as possible, because it is easier to know when you achieved something if the goal is clear.

Let me know in the comments if you achieved something in life that was a goal of yours and tell me how it felt!
