This past summer my 11 year old son was on a mission. Sports Illustrated for Kids had a list of “50 Things to do This Summer.” He took this as a personal challenge – not merely as a list of suggestions.
It was amazing how many he mananged to complete – and the more he managed to do, the more the rest of us got sucked in and wanted to help make sure he achieved as many things as possible.
It’s the reason he ended up with – not one, but THREE autographs from his heroes on the San Diego Padres. (Thank you David Eckstein, Chris Donorfia, and Chase Headley!) I’m so glad my boy knows how to dream big.
I am so bad at making goals – and admitting out loud what I hope for – that I should start with making a goal list of how to set goals… But I am going to try. If I don’t know what I want to achieve, then how will I know when I get there?
With bravery and bucket lists in mind, huge congratulations to my Super Blog Buddy, Sue for her upcoming author event tomorrow!
See our side panel for the details – I am so proud of her!
