I put together my 50 before 50 list earlier this year. Now it’s time for the first check-in six months later.

Until last year, I published monthly accountability blog posts.

In January, I used to write my commitments (I don’t like the word “resolutions). Then, every single month or at least that was the intention, I shared where I was in my progress.

I didn’t write my commitments for 2016. At least, not in the same format I used to. But since I turned 41 last May, I decided to put together an extended accountability list for before my 50th birthday.

Here’s my ultimate 50 before 50 bucket list. Who’s with me? #planning Click To Tweet

When you think of it now, it feels I have all the time in the world, but believe me, it’s not that simple.

My goal today is share with you where I stand in my progress so far.

You know I’m all about making lists.

While those we create on a daily basis to become more productive are excellent, bucket lists also help us achieve more in the long run. Think about it!

Whether it’s a 20 before 20 or a 50 before 50 list like mine, it’s rewarding to be able to check out items from it.
