Incredible List

Welcome to the list of incredible aspirations.

Remember the purpose of our journey: to build a better body so that we can do incredible things with our lives.

That’s what it’s all about.

Life is full of exciting opportunities and it is up to us to choose how we’re going to pursue them.

This is my list of incredible things I want to accomplish. It’s designed to challenge me. To push me outside of my comfort zone. To force me to face my fears. And to make me stronger day in and day out.

I’m crossing things off as I accomplish them and adding things on as I go. I’ll keep you updated with all of my experiences through this blog.

This is by no means a static list. It will continue to evolve over time. It will change form and shape as I venture down different paths over the course of my life.

Feel free to follow my journey by subscribing to my free newsletter and start putting together your own incredible list.

  1. I see you’ve already done a tough mudder, Maybe do the Toughest mudder;)
    I’m seriously considering it this year 😉 would also take ‘see new york’ off my list too.
    Excellent list! must formalise my own:

    1. Toughest Mudder is on the list. My buddy and I are discussing the possibility of doing it in 2014. We’ll see what happens 🙂
      It’s always nice to take two things off the list at one time!

  2. In a first time, you definitely have to go skydiving. Why ?? because it is the most powerful sport. Yes I am partial. But believe me it is very different from bungee jump because you are so far from the ground that you don’t have vertigo. No problem with heights.
    It is pure adrenaline in fact.

    See you one day in a drop zone.

    1. Jerome, I always thought bungee jumping would be more frightening than skydiving because you can see the ground. I guess I’ll have to find out when I test the two myself. Cheers!

      1. I have never made an incredible list. Now it occurs to me that I will never do all the things that I want to do if I don’t even recognize all of them. Great List! I will steal some of your ideas!

  3. Kayaking / Hiking / Camping in Alaska with all 3 of my children.

    I did this about 8 years ago (when the oldest was 6) with only me and my husband. It was (as of yet) the most amazing experience of my life. I want to share this with the ones I love the most.

  4. Hi Srdjan

    Thanks for posting this haven’t been on your website in a while and wasn’t expecting this for sure. I’ve got an idea for
    you. You could keep something called a vision board. Basically just get a massive piece of cardboard and then when you find stuff from magazines or newspapers or even if you have ideas of your own that you really don’t have time for in the present just doodle them onto your vision board. Then put it somewhere prominent like above your bed. It’s so easy to lose your ambition to go places and do things and what better way to keep you motivated every single day than to look at it as soon as you wake up

    1. Thanks for the awesome comment Harun! I’ve heard of vision boards before, but never thought about implementing them. I think it’s a great project to take up. I’ll let you know what I come up with. Cheers!

  5. Solving a Rubiks Cube is easy. I’m glad you’re learning to cos its quite fun. Whats your fastest time? Mine is 20 secs but i havent done it in ages and the world record is 5.55 secs lol

      1. the time was possible because i was using a cube that was the best in the world 3 years ago. Oh and im guessing that since you havent crossed out ‘go without internet for a month means you havent done it. How bout disconnecting your internet for the month or go on an adventure for a whole month with only your phone for contacting people and thats it..? I have a suggestion for something you can add to your list: 5-10 two fingers push-up on one hand! Like Bruce Lee!

  6. Srdjan,

    You can compile your blog articles and publish it! You are an amazing writer.
    I’d love to have a copy of your book someday.


  7. Hey nice list, I have been part of your emails for a while but did not go through your website to see this……………..very cool!
    Kinda like the Kick the bucket list….Always take action and GSD-(Get Shit Done)!

    ……………Thank you…..Richard

  8. Brilliant list. I make these sort of list (although mine feels a bit puny comparatively – but then I’m not you lol) Thanks again and keep up the great work 🙂

      1. At the moment my top fitness goals are improving plank time, mastering alternate step skipping and to get back into running. Personal goal at the moment a bit lost but thinking one up ready for my 4th next year 🙂

  9. Hello Im Kaylee, I noticed that one of your aspirations is to go completely Paleo. That is also on my list…but its really hard…I have the willpower to do it, but I have a family who doesnt buy into the whole Paleo mumbo jumbo…as they put it. Being that I have had eating disorders in my past makes it extremely difficult to convince them of anything related to food. I was wondering if you have any suggestions or healthy meal plans that would accommodate for maybe a 80:20 Paleo lifestyle.

    1. Hey Kaylee, I’ve been following an 80:20 Paleo lifestyle myself and similarly find it very difficult to stick to my guns when I go back home to visit. It has taken me some time to get my family to understand why I am no longer eating the foods I once used to eat regularly. If you can’t get your family on board, stop trying to explain it to them and do your best to make your own food decisions. Once they see you are committed, they will begin to come around. It might mean doing a bit of your own grocery shopping at first 🙂

  10. Hey, definitely an interesting list. I’ve added some of yours to my one as well. For the fitness aspirations, do you focus on one goal at a time? And if so what are you currently working on? Cheers.

  11. A long-time follower of yours, I’m not sure why I never ventured to this page before! Most of our lists seem to overlap. I will say you seem to have a drastic lack of ocean-y things. I want to learn to water ski and surf. I also LOVE skin diving and want to get S.C.U.B.A. certified. seeing a live reef is mind-blowing! If you want A thrill, cliff diving is (horrifying) perfect! I did it in Hawaii (into the sea). I found it much more of a profound experience than sky diving!

    1. Erin, thanks for your awesome comment! Haha yeah it does look like I’m lacking some ocean-y items. I definitely need to add surfing on the list (I’ve tried it twice and would love to get better at it). Tell me more about this cliff diving you speak of…

      1. I did it in Hawaii, the Big Island. The feeling of weightlessness as I fell triggered some weird instinctive fear or something right before I hit the water. I never felt that at any other time in my life, even when I went sky diving. It was something I’ll never forget!
