Bucket lists can be done for different reasons—to set goals, dreams to strive for or fun things to do. If you look at having a bucket list to help you set future goals, then you need to ask yourself what do you want to accomplish. To make a certain income per year? To see the world? To give back to the community? Something you want to obtain in your career?
Before you make your list think about these things to help with what to put down:
1. If you only had one day to live, what would you do?
2. Who would you like to spend time with the most? Friends? Family?
3. Who would you like to meet in person and talk to?
4. Where would you like to visit?
5. Is there something you would like to do—like learn a new language or scuba dive?
6. What has been your dream as a child? Young adult? A parent?
7. If you had all the time and money you wanted, what would you do?
8. What are your achievements? What else do you want to achieve?
9. How do you want to be remembered?
10. What will give your life its greatest meaning?
These are just some questions you can think about before you sit down and make your list. I don't have a bucket list, but I do have goals—all in my mind. If I stop and think of what I want to do with the time left to me both serious and fun, I could make a bucket list. A list gives you something to work for.
So let me see what should be number one on my bucket list?
It could be anything you want—from visiting Australia to writing a bestseller to working in a mission in South America—because it is YOUR list.
