Currently in theaters there’s a movie entitled The Bucket List. A bucket list is a list of all the things you’d like to do before you die. Have you ever made a “bucket list” ? and stop putting off your dreams for “someday”.
How many people do? Those who do, usually do it far to late. It’s not macabre; it’s actually enjoyable and extremely useful.
Take inspiration from the movie “The Bucket List” and ask yourself: If I had one year left to live, what would I be sure to do?
By creating a list of 100 things ( more or less) you want to do before you die or before you “kick the bucket”, you can begin focusing your life on what really matters to you.
So, what should you include on your bucket list? Maybe you want to . . .
- Witness a solar eclipse
- Ride a gondola in Venice.
- Parachute trip
- Do stand-up comedy…
There are several things you can do to make the list more useful.
- Prioritize it. Find the most important things on the list. Find the things you can accomplish readily and with the least amount of effort.
- Make a plan. List the steps necessary to accomplish specific items. (You might do this for all of the items, but just doing it for the most important and easiest will get you started.)
- Act on it.
- Repeat the process.
It’s never too early or too late to create a bucket list. So, whether you’re 10 or 98, use this lens for inspiration and for guidelines on how to get started creating your list of things to do before you die.
