This website has two goals
Goal #1 – Help you create your bucket list
Goal #2 – Help you learn how to live out your bucket list
Some quick backstory and the problem with bucket lists...
When I was 14-years-old I wrote the very first version of my bucket list. I thought that I would spend the rest of my life crossing everything off one by one.
Then I became an adult.
Turns out, when you get older, life gets busy. Things like careers, relationships, paying the rent, all began to take up my time, energy, and money.
When I would revisit my bucket list, it appeared like a collection of wants that were incompatible with the life I was living.
It was then that I realized a bucket list was just that – a list. It was never meant to be a framework to guide me through life. If I was serious about making an effort to actually live out my list, I had to rethink what a bucket list was and more importantly how to use it.
Redefining the bucket list
My breakthrough came when I started using different words to talk about my bucket list. I stopped saying that I “have a bucket list” and started saying I’m “living my bucket list.”
Having vs. Living a bucket list...
HAVING a bucket list can…
❌ Prevent you from living in the moment
❌ Halt personal growth + development
❌ Lead to in-action rather than taking action
❌ Turn you into a self-absorbed person
❌ Make you feel like a failure
LIVING a bucket list can…
✅ Allow you to appreciate all the moments
✅ Actively encourage you to take a role in your personal growth
✅ Reinforce the principles of the person you want to be
✅ Make you feel like a daily success
✅ Assist in identifying how you can best give back to the world.
✅ Help you do more, be more, and live more
Who are you?
Probably an awesome person.
I know what it’s like to be in your 20s trying to figure out what you want to do with your life and having no clue where to begin. So I’m writing this for the people who can relate to that feeling. Regardless of your age, you are looking to live a life that matters in the end. And that makes you my kind of person.
