A 40 miles per hour sign.

I’m hurtling towards the dreaded big ‘four oh’. It’s not something I’m happy about but, rather than hide away from it – like I normally do with each passing year – I’ve decided to make the most of it. I’ll be doing this by completing a 40 before 40 challenge.

Starting on my 39th birthday in November 2018, I’m aiming to try 40 things that are completely new to me in just 52 weeks.

Why? Well, I like a challenge and, to be honest, I didn’t come up with the idea until I was well beyond 38.

This isn’t just a personal mission, however. I’m also hoping that it will inspire others to get out of their comfort zones and try new experiences that are a big deal yet achievable.

I’m currently working on my 40 before 40 list and will publish it on my 39th birthday. I already have some exciting ones planned so watch this space!

That said, I’m very much open to suggestion so, if you have any ideas for things I could try, please share them on Twitter or Facebook.

Similarly, if you represent a brand and think you could help with any challenges, please email me at tom@diaryofthedad.co.uk.
