Mount Whitney Summit

Mt Whitney Summit — August 2008

There are days when I feel accomplished, and there are days when I feel down. Sometimes life seems to get a little boring, and the days begin to pass in the blink of an eye. So I’ve decided to write this post in an effort to keep myself inspired and to remind myself not to let my life get too boring as I quickly approach my 31st year. There are some things that I’ve accomplished that I can look back upon to remind myself that I am living, and there things I want to do to make sure I keep living. On days when life gets frustrating and starts to seem pretty boring, I remind myself of these things that I’ve done and can continue to be proud of. And along with that, I have to keep reminding myself of all the things out there that I want to do!

So here is my list… And now it’s your turn.

What are your accomplishments and goals? How do you stay motivated?

Done and/or accomplished:

Things I want to do: (Not limited to just this list 🙂 )

  • Finish a marathon or longer race
  • Take an overnight hiking/backpacking trip
  • Ride my bike up the Pacific Coast
  • TRAVEL more (Asia, Africa, more of Europe, South America, anywhere really)
  • Walk from San Diego to Oregon along the PCH
  • Live in a van or RV for at least a month
  • Hike some or all of the Appalachian Trail
  • Become self employed
  • Hike Mt Kilimanjaro

    Mt Whitney looks stunning – congrats on that conquest! As for travel, asia is mindblowing. If you can, try and make some time to see more out of the way places like Laos and (to a degree) Cambodia instead of just hanging around Thailand.

    It's not that expensive or, really, as far out of your reach to go as you might imagine. And well worth the planning.
