In case you haven’t heard, a “bucket list” is a list of all the things you hope to do, see and experience in your lifetime. Studies have shown that writing down your goals is a great way to help ensure you realize them, so writing down your bucket list can also help ensure that you actually see, do and accomplish all that you want to. But a bucket list isn’t about writing down impossible dreams—it’s about writing down those goals and aspirations that you can actually achieve.
Considering Your Personal Limitations
When creating a realistic bucket list, you have to first think about your personal limitations. These could be physical, time limits and financial restrictions. The limitations don’t mean you can’t necessarily accomplish one of the goals, just that you need to consider making alternative arrangements in order to do so. For example, if you have limited funds, then you may think the idea of traveling around the world is ludicrous and thus might leave it off your bucket list. However, if you fly during the off-season, fly into smaller airports, and book rooms in inexpensive inns or do house swaps, you could still make it happen.
Your bucket list doesn’t have to be all fancy and death defying filled with travel, skydiving and bungee jumping madness. Your bucket list can contain simple accomplishments that keep you close to home, such as a list of books you want to read, a language you want to learn or some foods you want to try. Bucket lists aren’t just about dramatic, giant gestures—they’re also about everyday experiences you can have right in your own community that will enrich your life daily.
You can also consider partnering up with a friend or family member who has a bucket list. This allows both of you to not only accomplish the items on your own list, but on each other’s also. The really great thing here is that it will introduce you to fun experiences and activities you never would have thought of on your own.
