Bucket List Examples To Add To Your List Of Personal Goals

Bucket List Examples To Add To Your List Of Personal Goals

You may be familiar with the 2007 movie The Bucket List (Starring Morgan Freeman & Jack Nicholson).
Two incurably ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of things they want to do before they die.

The Bucket List

The Bucket List is a 2007 American comedy-drama film.
Rob Reiner directed it.
As I get older, the topic of the film still resonates with me.
I have a bucket list. It helps me focus achieving certain things in life.

Why should you want to create your own bucket list?Mainly to motivate you to get out of your “lazy” chair and go for your dreams.

The odds are that you’ll spend most of your time caught up in a myriad of day-to-day activities.
If you don’t live your life guided by personal goals and plans, that is what usually happens.
So a bucket list is a master list of goals for your life.

To make your bucket list, it might come in handy to think what you would like to achieve, what you would like to experience and what you’d want to take part in and skills you’d like to develop.

Use a Bucket list To Write An Awesome List Of Personal Goals

It’s good to have a plan for your life and to set specific goals.
Making a Bucket List filled with all your dreams, ideas and things you want to achieve is a fun and stimulating activity.
Think back about what you have achieved over the last half year and what goals you have set up for yourself for the next six months.
Nothing feels better than to have one of your dreams realized and then being able to mark it as done on your bucket list.

I hope you find this bucket lists examples overview handy.

If you search the web for “Bucket List” you will find it has been the subject of many Q & A sessions.
It is certainly a topic that people think about once in a while.

  • What would I do if I had only this amount of time left?
  • What would I like my legacy to be?
  • How would I like to be remembered?

The answers given in these Q & A sessions are often very different from each other.
Although there are also several similarities.
I find it fascinating to see how people differ and how much they have in common.
