A New Monthly Life List (August 2014): Fun, Free and in Your Neighborhood

It is monthly life list time again! This month you will find a whole new assortment of local, free and helpful activities that you can start doing today in order to add more adventure to your life and start building bucket list momentum. This month try to challenge yourself to do one more item than you did on the last list. It is a great way to build momentum! (Hat tip to Kate L for the suggestion!)

If this is your first time seeing one of these monthly lists, now is your chance to try out the Life List lifestyle without having to fully commit yourself. Find a friend, set aside some time and use this mission as an excuse to go adventuring! If you get a good story out of completing any of these items, come back to this post and share your experiences with the community. We want to hear from you!

Monthly Life List: August 2014

The following is a life list that is meant to be fun, free and something that you can do locally. The only guideline is you should aim to finish as many items as possible by the deadline (see below!).

  • Learn to say “thank you” in a new language
  • Eat a childhood meal with a friend
  • Hold or get the door for someone
  • Share your dreams with someone who doesn’t expect it
  • Promote someone else’s idea
  • Choose to be happy for an entire day
  • Admit your faith and beliefs to someone you trust
  • Go for a 5k walk
  • Ask a complete stranger a non-trivial question
  • Be on time for 48 hours consecutively

The Deadline

No Life List would be complete without a deadline. This monthly life list’s deadline is:

August 31st 2014

    This goes to show that you never know when you’ll have an impact on someone – my comment about increasing the number of monthly list items I complete was a spur-of-the-moment thought as I was writing!

    Now, I’m off to start living up to my new standard ( )!

    These lists are really lovely, Danny. Anything that reminds us to expand the joy in our lives by focusing on the small details is alright by me.
