MY BUCKET LIST

Hey, welcome to my bucket list! I wrote the very first version of this list when I was 14 years old. Back then it only had just over a hundred things on it.  But the crazy thing about life is that the longer you live, the more things you want to experience, see, try and learn.  So as I’ve grown, so too has this list.   I estimate it will take approximately a lifetime to complete.

My Personal Rules

1. I can add a new item at any time.

If I hear of a cool place or if someone tells me about an awesome adventure, it goes on the list. Zero hesitation.

 2. I can add an item to the list and immediately cross it off.

Often the best experiences in life happen unexpectedly without advanced planning. If something unanticipated happens, it can immediately go on the list and immediately be crossed off.

 3. I can remove an item at any time.

Life changes. Priorities change. If I see something on this list that no longer interests me in any way, it immediately goes away.

 4. I cannot get upset if I fail to accomplish everything on this list.

This list represents all my ambitions in life. I’m a really ambitious person and I acknowledge to cross everything off this list is an enormous undertaking. This list is to help me reach my goals. It will not stand as a reminder of my failures.
