1A. I think he spent his life trying to do everything on his “life list” because he is a man of his word. He makes a promise at the rite of passage and commits to it. He is a man who wants to make the best out of everything and live life to the fullest. John Goddard sets all these goals so he can be satisfied with his life.
B. My life would be nothing like John’s life is. I would not be in that good of shape that I could bike 10 kilometers everyday and do 100 situps every morning. I would also be living at home near my family not still travelling around the world with little ties to the family.
C. I would like to do a lot more than 10 things before I get to forty so I’ll pick my top 10.
- Graduate high school
- Get into post-secondary school
- Get married
- Have children
- Fly on a plane
- Get license
- Play Jr. B tigers hockey
- Live a life that I am satisfied with
I believe I could do everyone one of them realistically. None of them are too far fetched.
D. If I had to choose between a life far-off adventure by myself or stay in one place with friends and family I would easily stay in one place. I like being with my friends and family. Being with them makes me very happy and I love every second of it. We always take our friends and family for granted we don’t realize how much they mean to us and how much they shape our identity until they are gone. The travel part sounds fun but why do that alone when you can do a yearly trip with all your friends and family.
E. I think the easiest goal listed is learn jujitsu. Learning it doesn’t mean you have to master the art. It means learn the basics. Read the works of all those authors for example Shakespeare alone wrote 154 books. That would take such a long time.
