IamA guy who assigned himself a Life Deadline and made the purpose of my life to complete a very specific Bucket List. AMA!
In 2010 I assigned myself a deadline of May 25th 2017 and made the purpose of my life to complete my bucket list. Prior to that I was dealing with clinical depression and was frustrated with the course of my life. It sounds cheesy but after hearing other people's cool stories, I crafted a plan to live my own.
My list (which I call a Life List) has two rules. First, every item must be completed before the deadline. Secondly, I can not add or remove any items from the list.
You can see my Life List here: http://www.lifelisted.com/life-list/
Since starting I have been tackling the list by living in strategically located cities for 6 months at a time. I pay for stuff by writing other people code (Ruby) and doing online marketing freelancing. In pursuit of the list I have been to all seven continents, learned to pickpocket, lost 60 pounds in order return to my high school weight, been to the super bowl, ran a marathon and completed about 100 other items.
I am currently over 80% done with the list and expect to finish it early.
