9 Questions to Kindle Your Defining Moment, Pt. 1

Over the next nine days, I am going to ask a series of questions designed to help you discover your passion. Answer them here as a comment, if you’d like, or if you write your answers on your own blog, but be sure to post a link so others can see. I got us started with question number one, “What are the 50 things in life you most enjoy doing?”

Don’t try to be all fancy with your answers, either! If you’re a parasailor, awesome! If you like scrapbooking, cool! Maybe you’re like me and you like board games – good for you! It’s your life, so tell us about it!

What are the 50 things in life you most enjoy doing? (Don’t stop until you have at least 50 things listed).
