Building A Bucket List

A “bucket list”, is a detailed list of all the things you want to experience, goals that you want to achieve, and dreams you want to fulfill before you finally leave this world.

Why You Should Create a Bucket List?

If you aren’t one to live your days by personal plans and goals it’s very likely that almost every day is spent on mundane matters, work and personal commitments. It also means that while you do the things you are supposed to or need to do, the things that you want to do get sidelined. When you create a bucket list, it acts a reminder of the things that are really important to you and helps encourage you to act on them.

Even when you do create to-do lists and live-by goals, they are typically created within the framework of some or the other social context like health, career or performance. But a bucket list is different. It opens up this context and gives you the opportunity to do all the things you want to do, regardless of how random, big or small they are.

Planning For The Future

It is a way to plan ahead all of the important things that you want for your entire life. When you write a bucket list, it will help you come up with various ideas that are different from standard goals that you set for yourself. This can prove to be a very insightful exercise. It can be fruitful if you follow it through as well. In addition, it will also make you more enthusiastic as you have some idea of what lies ahead.

The point of creating your bucket list is to maximize every single moment of your existence and live life to the fullest.
