Give yourself credit for what you've done so far and inspiration for what you can try next. Whether you're looking for an excuse to do the little things you've dreamed about, or hoping your zaniest goals are within your reach, 2001 THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE will start you on your way to finding fulfillment every day of your life.
