But it doesn't stop me from copying her mighty life list. (Or, more accurately, copying her life list idea. I couldn't just copy her list. Hers includes "Meet Ms. Whinfrey," which, as we already discussed, ew.)
My list includes lofty items like #29 (take a year-long road trip) and #47 (step foot on all seven continents) and more simple - but equally drool-worthy - desires like #36 (sleep through the night). Every item is measurable, because I actually was paying attention in all those business meetings (definable, measurable goals). So, for example, "read more" became #s 17 and 18: read 100 fiction books and read 100 nonfiction books, respectively. Otherwise, how would I ever know when to mark "read more" as complete? The list currently contains 59 items, a strange number to select for an ending point. Which is because it's not an ending point, it just means I got sleepy last night and stopped listing. But that's okay. It's an evolving list. I'll add things. I'll mark things off. I'll replace things like "read 100 books" with "read 100 more books." And I reserve the write to eliminate things, should they become less important to me over time (Antarctica, I'm looking at you).
