52 weeks of purposeful living

Clear-Sense-Of-PurposeAntoine de Saint-Exupéry said, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

I believe this captures the essence of my new project, bucketology.

Like so many people, I was plodding through life. I felt uninspired, unchallenged and straight-up bored with my routine. Instinctively, I knew I had amazing power inside of me – I just couldn’t figure out how to access it.

Until recently, that is.

Here’s my detailed plan for living a more purposeful life in 2014 (subject to change).
