100 Things To Do Before You Die

After the recent death of Dave Freeman, co-author of “100 Things to Do Before You Die,” after hitting his head in a fall at home on Aug 17th, 2008, I thought this might be of relevance to you.

(CNN) — Cindy Haynes was 42 when she made her decision. All of her life she had been a wife and a mom. Now her kids were growing up; her divorce was being finalized, and she had just landed her first real job.

“I decided that there were two groups of people in life,” Haynes said. “Those people who went out and did and do, and those who dream about it and never really accomplish anything. I decided to be a doer.”

Now 47, Haynes has backpacked through Europe — three times. She’s been to the top of Machu Picchu in Peru. She’s gone to China, New York City and a Yankees game. She has sung at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool where the Beatles first met their manager, and she’s seen the Iditarod sled dog race in Alaska.

“I don’t want to get to my dying breath and wish I had done something,” Haynes said. “I want to get to my dying breath and say ‘I did it. I overcame it. I became it.’ No regrets.”

“I’ve learned that when you put your dreams and goals on paper and actually plan to accomplish them, you can actually make them a reality,” said Eric Shoen, a 31-year-old from Rochester, New York.
