100 Life Goals

A few weeks ago, we talked about creating goals with your spouse. We gave a list of seven steps to do so here. We are now posting our goals for two reasons: 

1) To help you with ideas 

2) So that the whole world (or the six people who read our posts) can hold us accountable!

Some of these may make no sense to you but that is okay...your goals probably wouldn't make sense to us either! The point is not to make sense to everyone else but to put your goals down on paper (or virtual paper).

The title for this post is "100 Life Goals" but I am not even sure how many goals we have here--could be more, might be less. Okay, here we go:

    I know this isn't what you were looking for in terms of comments so take this as...satire....

    -Se Habla Espanol...How would your dad feel about this???
    J/K and LOL.
    -Please include WE WIN on the charities list!
    -Josh and I are going to Greece with you all ;)

    Because I know the Mabons(both of you have very determined personalities) will accomplish whatever you put your minds to, I figured I would phrase it as when...not if... you all reach those goals...don't forget about a playa...

  2. [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Anji Mabon, Anji Mabon. Anji Mabon said: Happily Wed Wednesday: 100 Life Goals! http://ow.ly/3lTu8 [...]

  3. I think we'll keep you in mind. Our daughter did participate in your wedding, so it will be kind of hard to forget about you guys. Thanks for the comment.

  4. LOL. It's really sad that my dad is from Puerto Rico but I cannot hold a conversation in Spanish...too, too sad!

    We will definitely include We Win...we love you guys!

    Yes, please DO come with us to Greece...maybe Josh can show us around! :)

  5. You guys have some very ambitious goals, which is ok because with God you can do it all. This post has inspired me to dream bigger and create life goals for myself as well. Thank you very much. God bless.

  6. Great, life goals can be done on a small or big scale. As long as you're doing something, the most important thing about life goals is to get started. Please do me a favor, once you have them written down will you come back here and share them with us. We love to see what others want to accomplish in life, it gives us new ideas of things we can strive to do. I hope to hear back from you, good luck with your life goals.
