Life Goals

May 28, 2015

One underlying motivation behind the building of this website was the desire to create the life I truly, deep-down, always wanted to lead.

One filled with family, adventure, and experiences.

One that gave me fulfillment, reward and, ultimately, allowed me to live how I wanted too, and work when and how it best suited me;

I wanted to challenge what I felt was impossible, open myself up to opportunity and achievement, whilst also putting my skills and experiences to use and giving something back along the way.

I decided that it was time to take action and if I didn’t do it TODAY, then I never would.

The below list is a culmination of a lot of deep thinking and introspection, coupled with considerable inspiration from a variety of sources. Three of which, in particular, I would like to call out here:


  • Joel Runyon and his “Impossible” website – a true inspiration to us all on what is possible if we truly put our mind to it


  • – A awesome website, one I return to regularly if I’m ever in need of boost of motivation or inspiration


  • Chris Winfield –  a recent addition to my reading list, however, it is already had unbelievable impact of my working behaviour, mindset and productivity


My bucket list, life plan, list of impossibles, call it what you will – but here it is:
