My Ultimate 50 Fabulous Things To Do Before 50 Second Check-In

My Ultimate 50 Fabulous Things To Do Before 50 Second Check-In

Check the second check-in of my 50 things before 50. Learn about my updates, progress and get inspiration to achieve more whatever your age.

Can you believe that one year has already passed since I shared my 50 before 50 list with you?

Time flies!

And if we aren’t careful, we don’t accomplish anything.

That was one of the reasons for me to create this list in first place.

I dream BIG!

That’s how I’ve always been and how I’ll always be.

I prefer it this way.

If time passes anyways, why not making the most out of it?

But when you have big plans, you must also understand you won’t be able to accomplish them with the blink of an eye.

To achieve meaningful things you need time, work, dedication, and consistency.

Just saying you want something but not moving a finger to get them makes no sense.

In fact, most of the times it has the opposite effect. They create:

  • frustration
  • negativity
  • self-doubt
  • stress
  • overwhelm

My list may not be the fanciest of all, but each and every item is truly meaningful to me.

Here it is with the updates from last semester.

If you want to be successful, you have to be consistent. Check my 50-before-50 list on the blog for inspiration and accountability.

Be more inspired and energetic with a bucket list. Check my progress and more on the blog!


Every time I come here and share my stats with you, I feel refreshed.

Even if I had crossed just one item this time, there would still be progress and that’s what matters the most.

Next year, I’ll probably set due dates for most of the remaining items, but for 2017, I’ll let it happen.

You can do it too

No matter your age, you shouldn’t use excuses such as being too young or too old to achieve big goals.

As we get older, we have more responsibilities. We must manage our time mindfully to accomplish anything meaningful.

Yet, it’s possible.

Don’t give up on yourself!

Do you have a list like this one too?

If yes, please, share the link in the comments, I’d love to follow your progress too!
