Make a List..... Change Your Life! 

Recently I was interviewed by an University of Iowa College senior Kendall McCabe.  I met Kendall years ago at KRUI the college radio station in Iowa City where she was a DJ. In the final question of the interview, she asked me if I had any advice for her before her last semester of college.  I said well why don't you make a list of the 25 things you want to do before your graduate, do them, and blog about it along the way...... And she has!

Usually making list of things you want to get done is a very private thing.  As a life coach I make a lot of lists with clients! It's my job to hold the client accountable for crossing the goals off and celebrating with them when they do.  When Kendall put this list up on the internet in blog form she is holding herself accountable for finishing her great project.  She also has created a form in which she has supporters whether they are friends or family cheering her on wanting to see if she finishes what she has started!  

This is such a great exercise for anyone to try!  In Kendall's case what a great way to accomplish something before she heads out into the world as a college graduate!  Good-luck with the list and have an amazing last sememster of college! 

Ps. Thanks for inviting us along for the ride!  We are cheering for you!

Pss. The great thing about Kendall's list is some of the items are big (22. Play at Mission Creek Festival) and some of them are small (13. Play pinball at The Mill).  Check out the whole list here... http://twentyfivethings.tumblr.com/thethings

What a nice suggestion Patrick! Maybe I'll make a list for myself too! It doesn't matter if it's a big deal or not but it's the feeling that you've actually accomplished something that matters the most. It's that feeling of excitement, that you can actually congratulate  yourself for a job well done. For me, that is priceless!

Live Beyond Awesome.

I have a list of things I need to make a list about lol!  I applaud Kendall for putting hers out there for all to see and support her in completing!  You are right - making a list is actually a pretty effective step in getting things done - gets them out of your head and hopefully put in order of priority.

That's a great suggestion!  A mini version of the master dream list.
