40B440 What happened?

What is 40B440

40b440 was a great idea back when I was a young whippersnapper of  38 and full of youthful exuberance. I, therefore, decided to challenge myself. The idea was I would complete 40 challenges before I was 40 and it seemed like a good idea.

The 40B440 no more

Now at the age of 44, I can confess I did not really make it. By the time I was 40 I had ticked off about 8 maybe 10 of the challenges, and some were around halfway through.

As I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging <add coming back post link> this left me with some options:

  • Do I create a 50B450 and adding the uncompleted challenges into the list? – Clearly, as I did not complete the 40b440 I am not keen on this.
  • Do I  just bin them all? – I am not a defeatist so again not keen on this option.
  • Do I pretend I completed them? – not very scouty.
  • Do I do something else? – this is the option left.

40B440 other option

A BUCKET LIST, was the answer. This was a way I can grow or add to the list removes the pressure of doing them by a set date.

Obviously starting with original 40B440 list, I have reformatted it in to the revised bucket list found here.

I hope that over time I will both complete and add to this bucket list as I experience this thing we call life.
