Life’s little moments of success can pass us by so easily. If we don’t track the things we’re proud of, we lose track of how far we’ve come. Steve Kamb’s Epic Quest of Awesome inspired me to build my own. I keep track of achievements, and after five significant ones, I level up. This page is where I track what I’ve done so far, and I’ve also got a list of things I’d like to do next. Join me and let’s see how things go, and I hope I can help inspire you to take your life to the next level, too.
Life comes in bursts, and just a few frantic months after Level 6, I knocked off four more tasks. The last one in this list is going to hold me back for a few more months though.
It took almost a year to claw my way up to this level – well, not really. It’s more like I lost sight of my questing for a while as my work duties expanded, so I didn’t make as much big-picture progress on stuff for a year.
I did a lot of traveling in a six month time span, and was able to knock off a few goals quickly:
I sat down to update this page in December and realized I’d already leveled up! I’d forgotten to update this page with some fun personal achievements.
In this level, I also returned to Amsterdam & Stockholm, two of my favorite European cities, but I don’t count returning visits as achievements.
Here’s some of the things I’m most proud of up til I started keeping track on January 1, 2012. I giggle when I think of this as Level 1, because I’ve achieved so many tasks that I really cherish, but I gotta start counting somewhere.
