Last year, I started a “33 Before 33” list that contained a list of 33 goals I wanted to hit before my 33rd birthday. Although I didn’t hit all of my goals in my 33rd year, this was a lot of fun and I am adding a 34th goal to my list this year. I am a very goal oriented person and undoubtably achieved a few of those items because of the public list.
The following are my 34 goals to complete by the time I turn 34. I’ve added some new goals and carried over some goals over from last year’s list. But the rules are the same and this list will change throughout the year. And without further ado, I am excited to present: My 34 Before 34!
