I’m sure you have lots of lists but the one I’m thinking about is like in the movie The Bucket List. A list of things you want to do, achieve, and accomplish in your life.
What got me thinking about it was this life list at Betty Decoy’s blog. While I don’t want to try 1,000 cheeses (worried about constipation), I’ve had a list in my head and it’s time to let it out.
Why have a list? Writing down what you want to accomplish helps in making it reality. Most of us get caught up in the day to day routine of life and never focus on longer term goals. At least that’s my problem.
So take some time and create your list of life goals. There’s even an e-How article on creating a bucket or life list. Google the term “bucket list” for a lot of examples if you need help getting started.
Here’s the start of my life list, but it is subject to change and I’ll be expanding it as well.
1. Dance at the weddings of my grandkids.
2. Zip line.
3. Travel to Japan, Germany, Australia and Italy.
4. Get a master’s degree
5. Take a 3-week vacation
6. Hike across England.
7. Own a convertible.
8. Celebrate our silver wedding anniversary.
9. Write a book.
10. Be debt-free!
If you’ve created a list (or have one in mind) tell us one thing on your list.
