Life Goal List Check In

Written by Sean

Topics: Sean's Blog

Wow!  I have not blogged in quite awhile other than writing book reviews.  I got bored at the office waiting on a few things during an admin day, so I thought it would be fun to update and go through my list.  This list was created around summer time 2013.  It will be copied from this blog post below.

I crossed 2 things off the list.  Read the Bible cover to cover, and coach a kids soccer team.  Looking back over these, I’m close to a few.  We planted a church, that is about to plant another church.  Life insurance restrictions have been lifted so I can skydive (wife pending).  I realized many of these goals aren’t going to be fulfilled any time soon.  This year I am reading a ton to grow personally, so hopefully that sets me into position to achieve some goals later in life.

Recently I’ve been looking over other people’s lists, and I’m pretty satisfied with mine.  Knocking off many smaller things really isn’t my style.  If I live half this list, I’ll have lived an amazing life.
