  1. What a fantasticccc post and some amazing goals!! I think its important to always have some hard ones, and some easy ones so you can tick the easier ones off first to get the momentum going. I have my own similar thing to this (just not as epic) where I want to do 25 things before I hit 25 which is less than a year away :) But I'm constantly reviewing the list and working on acheiving each goal as the weeks go on :) Goodluck ticking every single one of these goals off.
