What is a Bucket List?

A bucket list is a list of things that one wants to do before they die. It is a personal wishlist of sorts. The term "bucket list" is believed to have been coined by the 2007 movie "The Bucket List" starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, who played characters who were terminally ill and decided to complete all the things they wanted to do before they died.

Quick Tips for Creating your own Bucket List

1. Write it down - Write down your bucket list, either on a piece of paper or an electronic device and, keep it in a safe place. Writing your goals will increase your ability to achieve them and bring you to some level of commitment.

2. Mix it up - Include a mix of items on your list from different areas of life and make sure to add in some items that can be easily achieved. Setting small goals can keep you motivated to keep going.

3. Make it personal - Don't just copy and paste Bucket List items. Lists are best used as a source of inspiration which may resonate with you, or not, so write your list in a personal way that fits your unique desires.

4. Make it engaging with action words - Start the items on your list with an action verb that truly defines what YOU will be doing - it denotes an action on your part. Words like “Create”, “Travel”, and “Become” are good examples.

5. Stay motivated - Refer to your bucket list on regular basis, preferably at least once a month. it will help you to stay motivated on your path that you have chosen and lead you to your goal.

6. Keep it up-to-date - Be on the constant lookout for new ideas and make changes along the way. Add something new when you get inspired, or remove an item that no longer appeals to you. A good bucket list is always a work in progress - both you and your desires evolve.

7. Track your progress - Keep track of your goals and set up a solid action plan. Tracking your progress will help you stay on track and see the big picture on regular basis.

8. Share and inspire - Share your bucket list with family and friends, and inspire them to create their own lists as well. Sharing is a great way to make yourself more accountable and follow through your own words.

9. Most importantly, enjoy the journey!
