Jon’s Bucket List

Inspired by Celestine Chua’s public bucket list, I’ve decided to create one of my own. This transparency will not only inspire me to pursue the goals on this list with greater motivation, but will allow you to get a better sense of who I am through my goals and accomplishments. I encourage you to subscribe to my newsletter if you want me to update you as I accomplish the items on my bucket list. And if any of these ideas appeal to you, pursue them as well! I aim to motivate :).

    Thanks for keeping me accountable, Hipp! Relocating at the end of 2012 took a lot of me, but I’m back on track!

    Just updated the bucket list: learning to code has successfully been accomplished. Onward!

I'm Jon Guerrera, a life hacker at heart, and the man behind the scenes here at Living For Improvement. This blog documents all of my successes, failures, and lessons learned as I hack my way to happiness and fulfillment.
