2014 Bucket List

It’s been said that “40 is the new 30”. Well in the year I turn 40 I’ve decided on 30 things to accomplish on my 2014 Bucket List. This is my third consecutive year creating an annual Bucket List and by far my most aggressive. The biggest goal is to attend the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and watch a USA match; a lofty goal considering I don’t yet have game tickets or flights yet.

It’s Go! Time. Let’s make 2014 the best year possible:

1.       Be more positive, more optimistic

2.       Try something new (a new food, a new sport, a new activity)

3.       Cut out all soda for 4 months

4.       Get down to 200 lbs

5.       Play in a sports league

6.       Run the Dirty Dash

7.       Get off automatic mode and go manual with my Nikon

8.       Capture a “Wow!” picture

9.       Finish the family room in the basement

10.   Fly kites with the kids

11.   Go camping with the family

12.   2 Getaways with my wife

13.   Go to the beach

14.   Go Ice Fishing

19.   Attend 2014 World Cup US Men’s National game

20.   Attend USA Sevens Rugby Tournament in Las Vegas

22.   25 Blog Posts, including 4 video posts

23.   Register a domain name

  1. Looks like a great list! Can’t believe we are getting that old! The BIG 40 this year is a little intimidating! When you are ready to cross of number 30, let me know and we can do lunch!

    You have accomplished one of the most important steps in actually reaching your goals and that is to WRITE THEM DOWN! Here is a link to a great article about that very topic. Enjoy!


    1. Jeff, it’s been way too long. Let’s find a time to grab lunch; I believe we only work 5 minutes apart.
      Thanks for the article link. Great tips.
