This is the list of things I’ll do, hence “the Do list.” Actually, I’m not too good at following through on this stuff. But this list helps me prep. I’ll keep it updated as I plan more or complete things. For now…

What will I do?


  1. Run 26.2 miles (a marathon) in under five hours, barefoot
  2. Polyphasic sleep (on the Uberman schedule) for 30 days straight
  3. Get a book I write published through a traditional publisher (not self-published)
  4. Accumulate $20k in a Roth IRA by the time I’m 27 (in tax year 2016)
  5. Visit all 50 states before I turn 30 years old
  6. Take a road trip to the northwest of the United States with my brothers
  7. Give up a birthday (or Christmas) to raise money for charity: water
  8. Buy a house in Louisville
  9. Marry an amazing woman
  10. Adopt at least one child
