We had our highest number of new subscribers ever this
week! Thanks to all of you who pass CTJ on to your
friends, families, coworkers and networkers. Subscriber
numbers increased by almost 10% this week! Theresa
Ward is the winner of Jan Garrett’s wonderful CD, Gypsy
Midwife. She subscribed an email list that she’s a member
of to CTJ. An idea I hadn’t thought of. And a good one!
Please get permission from the list before you subscribe it.
Theresa had forwarded several issues of CTJ to the list
before suggesting the subscription. A great idea!

Things To Do Before You Die
A fellow coach, Rachelle Disbennett-Lee*, asks all her
clients to make a list of 100 things they will do before they
die. This is a fabulous idea! I started my list last December
It resides on the desktop of my computer, and it’s up to 54
items. I open the file almost every day and read through
the list. One of the items is already checked off!
Some people’s lists start now and contain only things they
haven’t done. Others’ lists include things they wanted to
do and have done along with those things they have yet
to accomplish. Either method is great. The point is to start
Do you have a list of things you want to do before you
die? If so, what can you add to it? If not, start one today.
Keep your list in a place where it’s easy to see and add to.
I’ve added five new items to my list just while writing
this issue of CTJ! You can see it at
The items don’t need to be consequential or important or
challenging. They can be, and they don’t need to be. Write
them so they are specific, measurable and start with a
verb. That gives them power, and there won’t be any
question about when you achieve them.
Start your list today!
If you really feel something in your heart, sooner or later
you’re going to be exactly what you want to be.

There is no end to the adventures we can have if we seek
them with our eyes open.
Dreams come a size too big so that we can grow into
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by
the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.
