This is a classic List Manifesto or Bucket List.

I like the way Sebastian Terry knew he wanted 100 things (that’s a good round number) and then he left a few spots blank to fill in later. This is a great way to plan that allows for flexibility.


The Sebastian Terry book is a great read – a swashbuckling adventure. I blogged about it here. 

Compare this to Dave Bruno’s 100 Things – a very different approach to creating a manifesto.
