John Goddard's Life List

At 15 years of age, John Goddard overheard his grandmother saying " If only I had done more when I was young" and decided he was not going to say those words and regret over things he could have done. So he sat down and wrote in detail 127 things he wanted to do and committed it to memory.

He had accomplished 109 of it. He had climbed 12 of the highest mountains, conducted 14 major expeditions into remote regions, traversed 15 of the worlds most treacherous rivers, visited 120 countries, studied 260 primitive tribes.

That is not all, he had also learn to speak French, Spanish and Arabic, explored coral reef  much much more that. You can visit his website and check out his accomplishments here.

Few of us are ever going to have 127 goals and commit to memory, but the story of John Goddard in an inspiring one. It is a story about goal setting and living one's life to the fullest.
