The syllabus of life

I had this thought recently about creating a syllabus for life, a list of things to learn, and read and do. It’s more work than a bucket list, perhaps, and there will be many tests, but it’s good work if you can get it. 

  • Know yourself.
  • Learn to love yourself. 
  • Exercise.
  • Eat well and develop a healthy relationship with food. 
  • Find and respect your boundaries and limits. 
  • Volunteer.
  • Learn another language.
  • Travel outside your comfort zone. 
  • Keep learning.
  • When starting something new, remember you will suck at it. Push through the suck.
  • Consider your spiritual life. 
  • Know that you are enough. 

What’s on your syllabus of life?
