Stretch List / Bucket List / Goals List

Bucket List

These lists are called different things; some call them Bucket Lists others call them Goal Lists and I even hear them called Impossible Lists.

Mine is a little different.

I include a thing called Stretches.

I was introduced to stretches a few years ago by my friend Greg (from Siberia).

What is a Stretch?

It’s a challenge… meant to stretch you. To expand your experience and to push your comfort zone so you grow as a person.

Greg and his brothers would give each other challenges (hand written sealed in an envelope) to perform in areas where they thought the other needed to grow or experience.

I thought this was awesome so Greg created a challenge and handed it to me in a sealed envelope. My first challenge was the Free Hugs experiment you see below.

Since then I’ve consciously tried to challenge myself & continue growing. This is my Life Stretch List & I challenge you to get out of any rut you’re in, push your comfort zone & try something new. Get motivated you crazy mofos!
