They say life starts at 40.

Oh well…

They also say a fool at 40 is a fool forever.

The kind of life that will start for you at 40 will be determined by the things you’ve done before 40.

At 40, some people look back with fulfillment and encouragement to continue living while some look back with regret and pain of wasted years.

“A fool at 40 is a fool forever”

That means there are some boxes you ought to have ticked before 40.

However, I’m not one who believes that you should do something because others are doing it. I’m a firm believer of mapping out your life according to your preferences, and not what people think.

So, this list of 40 things you should do before you turn 40 isn’t me telling you what you should do. It’s just a list of suggestions or something to inspire you to make your own list.

Here’s a list of 40 things to do before 40:

1. Discover your passion
