My Epic Todo List

This is my one big epic todo list for life. This is where I track the things I want to do, the places I want to visit, the experiences I want to have, and the goals I want to achieve. I've been keeping this list for a few years now but I was recently inspired by Steve over at Nerd Fitness and his Epic Quest of Awesomeness. So inspired that I even borrowed his adjective, although technically he didn't invent the word so I think it's ok.

How the list works

The overall idea of this list is to make my "bucket list" public knowledge. The benefit for me is twofold - first it will make me accountable to others and secondly I may just find people out there who can help me along the way. That's the beauty of the wonderful interwebs.

If you scroll down the bottom you can see the complete, but ever-evolving, list of things I want to do/see/achieve in my life (since 2013 anyway). They are categorised to help me keep track of my progress across different areas as I tend to have a lot of fingers in a lot of different pies. As I tick things off I will update this page and, if it was something totally cool, I may even write about it.
