Building A Bucket List

By: Tom Gallagher
Monday, October 7, 2019

Many people consider building a bucket list. This is a list of various things that you want to do, dreams that you want to achieve, and goals that you want to reach before you breathe your last. Many people wonder whether it is essential to build a bucket list. Here are some aspects to take into consideration:

  • Most of us carry on with our lives in a very monotonous way. We get caught up in personal and work commitments. We never think twice about what we really might want to do or the different things that we want to experience.

    There is a big difference between doing the things that you are supposed to do and the ones that you want to. When you create a bucket list, you focus on the latter. Having a list in front of you is one way to keep yourself enthused about reaching those goals, learning, seeing or experiencing new things.
     
  • It's important to know that a bucket list is very different from a list of live-by goals or to-do lists. These lists are always built within specific frameworks or in the context of other aspects such as career, health or performance, etc.

    A bucket list is entirely different, and it gives you the impetus to go ahead and do the things that you really want to do. Sometimes, these could be very insignificant things, but which hold meaning to you and they are what you should be adding to your bucket list.
     
  • A bucket list allows you to look at your life from a different perspective. It can also prove to be an insightful exercise and keep you to encourage to work towards doing the things on your bucket list.
