Top 100

Top 100

Carrie and Jonathan’s Top 100

There’s been a lot of talk lately about a “bucket list”. This is the list of things you want to do in life before you “kick the bucket” (otherwise known as dying).

The Top 100 is NOT our bucket list. These are more like our top 100 things we’re striving for in life at the moment.

Life, as it sometimes does, has plans to teach us things that we can choose to let crush us, or we can choose to let grow us.

Either way, having a list of things you want to BE, DO, and HAVE, are what pull you through all the difficult times.  They keep you in line with where you want to go and stop you from getting stuck along the way.

Some of these are the kinds of things you can cross off of a list… but many of them are not.

Each of our lists was originally created in 2003.

You’ll see some items have been crossed off.

But this top 100 is a living, moving, working document, and many of these things require daily attention, for life.

Example: “I have a strong marriage.”

This is not the kind of item you should be crossing off once you feel you’ve accomplished it.

So, the “Top 100” below are like affirmations for our life goals. They are also reminders.

100 things can be too much to focus on every day.  So we post these around wherever we’re living, so that we can help ourselves and each other.

(At times, we’ve even had laminated copies hanging in our shower!)

We see these lists (and each other’s), very frequently.  This keeps our minds reminded of what we are working towards, and cues our minds in those directions. (Jonathan’s is set as his homepage.)

We hope that seeing our lists inspire you to create your own. Keep it in front of you daily, so you can know and be reminded of why you are doing the things you are doing in your life.
