Setting goals has always been one of my favourite things to do. Getting them done, that's the hard part. That's why I wanted to hold myself accountable by sharing my 50x50 list here for anyone to see and check up on me. What is my 50x50 list? It is simply the 50 goals I want to accomplish by the time I turn 50 years old. I kicked off this ambitious list on September 29, 2019, the day I turned 40, giving myself a full decade to cross each and every one of these goals off my list, one by one. This page is dedicated to that list, with each accomplished goal (or in the process) highlighted in blue and linked to my blog, The Overhaul. Please feel free to follow along and take on your own challenge! Note: You may notice that some of the spots are blank ... that's because I know there will be new goals I will want to accomplish as I go, and so I will fill those in when I figure those out!
