40 by Fourty: A Personal Challenge

I turned thirty-five a few months ago and figured now that I'm officially all grown up, I better start figuring ways to maximize the last half of my thirties. Why not push the limits a little?

This list is a compilation of goals that I've set for myself. Think I can pull this off? Am I missing something I need to add on?
