MadLady’s Bricks on a Path Bucket List

How many friends do you know that can identify set goals without too much thinking? I don’t think I know any off of the top of my head. I believe that most of us move along from one day to the next without much thought about how we are advancing out lives. I’ve been guilty of this many times. Life can get rather hectic and confusing and sometimes we just don’t have time so take steps towards our dreams.

That’s why I created by Bricks on a Path. This is a bucket list of sorts; but really, it’s more like set goals on a path to achieving my dreams. They represent points of real progress to my future and are divided by the different sections of my life. This is the first in a new series: Bricks on the Path. I will teach you how to write a real plan, like the one that this came from. I will go into detail about why it is so important to write down exactly what you are aiming for and how to turn the writing into action.

Do you have a list like this somewhere in your life? 
How much does it help?
