80+ Quotes from Upgrade: Taking Your Work and Life from Ordinary to Extraordinary by Rana Florida

Instead of developing a real strategy to upgrade and optimize our lives, too many of us just slog through life in a state of “managed dissatisfaction.”

But it’s never too late to envision an entirely different future—or to actively upgrade your life. It’s not about finding more time, money, or resources. Anyone can do it.

This smart and entertaining guide delves deep into each principle, giving you the insights, tools, and inspiration to take your life from ordinary to extraordinary.

I've noticed the wordpress community has more access to different blogs using pages such as tags and freshly pressed. Whereas in blogger, you have a "next blog" button or you have to look through other people's followers.

Now that I'm back at the ripe ol' age of 21, I want to expand my opportunities.

I was inspired by A Beautiful Mess to make a goal list of 21 things to do before I am 22.

  1. Find a permanent volunteer position
  2. Complete 1 book; filled with journaling/scrapbooking
  3. Attend an opera
  4. Learn to sew with a machine
  5. Have someone write a guest post for my blog
  6. Support a protest
  7. Visit a main city in America
  8. Take an online blogging course
  9. Save $200+ in each savings account (I have 3 accounts)
  10. Write or translate a whole blog post in french
  11. Find a great cafe in Toronto
  12. Customize an outfit
  13. Read a self-help/self-improvement book
  14. Buy an original piece of art
  15. Rent movies and watch them all day
  16. Go vegan for at least 1 day each month
  17. Pay off my credit card debt
  18. Find my signature scent
  19. Watch a musical
  20. Participate in summerlicious
  21. Attend a TED talk

If you want some inspiration, here are some blogs that have to-do lists:

Hulk is Hungry, Dumb Funnery, My Stage My Choreography His Vision, 2 Boys n' Me, Alexandra Doffing, New Jersey Photographer Rich Green and you can check out more to-do lists here.
