Make The Most Out of Life! My Bucket List

Hallo dear friends! After reflecting on whether it’s a good idea or not to share your bucket list and dream goals, it was for me clear that I should share mine!

I want to share with you an original and funny way to build an effective Bucket List!

I’ve discovered this method by watching this Ted lecture by Travis Bell and I thought it was a good idea and needed more exposure!

 

But before, I want you to know what I think about Bucket List (and keep this in mind while reading after!!)

 

/!/ IMPORTANT BUCKET LIST DISCLAIMER /!/

  • For me, traveling is not a simple list to “check”: it’s rather experiences to live, letting the unknown coming in, meet unexpected people, etc… That’s why, this “bucket list” is not something to take to the letter, it’s flexible and give ideas and ambition.

  • But I do not expect to get the pleasure only by being able to say “okay I did it.” but rather, getting the pleasure while living it.

  • Most of the time, we tend to be disappointed when doing the experience because we put too much expectation on it. Hence you should not insist too much or put yourself pressure with it.

  • This bucket list was made to learn about myself, what kind of things I would like to experience in life etc… But I will never consider it “finished” and there are things I forgot of course, or I would like to do.

  • This list is more about giving an orientation, and to remind me of directions I could take for more excitement in life.

  • A list of goals is not a wishlist, but a statement of your intentions. Without deadlines, they have little motivational power and no emergency. It’s better to make your target line challenging but realistic (ambitious goal with an impossible deadline can be demotivating and damaging)

 

BUCKET LIST SUMMARY

Here is the method: with each first letter, you can find different goals you can set for an exciting life!

  • Goal!
  • Done!

  • Meet
  • Your proud achievement

  • Buy a special something
  • Ultimate challenge
  • Conquer a fear
  • Kind act
  • Express myself
  • Take lessons

  • Leave a legacy
  • Idiotic stuff
  • Satisfy a curiosity
  • Travel adventure

Hope you will get inspired!! Let’s get started 😀
