Last Friday, I wrote about Creating Categories to organize ideas for my #40Before40 list (click here to read the post).

This week, I posted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram asking for suggestions of items to include on the list. Below is the first round of selections for the final list.

So far I have selected 25 items. I’m planning on having a completed list by May 8 (my birthday), so I’m looking for 15 more items to complete the list.

Which of these ideas do you like or dislike? Do you have any other suggestions that I should consider adding to the list?
