Life List – Living With Intention

Goals, whether they are insane, serious, terrifying, or ambitious, give focus. They allow me to live with intention and to turn every day into a revolution. I also have this list on a Post-It note on my laptop, but posting it here makes me more accountable. The aim is not to make this a static list – goals change just as people do. The aim is to explore the world and in turn, explore myself.
