It won’t cost a penny to produce – only your time.

What is a bucket list?

A bucket list is, by definition, a list of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.

It’s not about things to do before you die, it’s about ensuring you are doing or planning for the things that you want to do right now!

Everyone has a bucket list, even if it is just milling about in your head. And it is unique to each and every one of us…
So, what’s on yours?

Why create a bucket list?

A bucket list is important for one thing and one thing only.
Want to know what it is? It is happiness!

When we cross things off our bucket list the immediate emotion that results is happiness. Achieving a goal makes us all happy. Merely ticking it off our list gives us a great sense of satisfaction. It puts a smile on our face, especially if it’s a real accomplishment.

Even if you frequently live by goals or to-do lists, they are probably framed within a certain social context e.g. your performance, career, health. A bucket list opens up the context. It’s a forum to write down anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to do, whether it’s big, small or random. It’s just like pinpointing all the highlights you want for your whole life.

How long will it take?

How long will it take? Only about 30-60 minutes (more if you get really caught up in it). What do you stand to gain? Significant clarity and focus on what you want from your life. It’s an invaluable exchange.

If you already have your list, take this opportunity to review it. See if there are new items you want to add on. If so, put them on your list. Check if all the items listed are still relevant or important to you. If not, remove them.

Now, take out your pen and paper or open up a text document. Start writing down what comes to mind as you read the following questions…


1. What would you do if you had unlimited time, money and resources?


2. What activities or skills would you like to learn or try out?


3. Are there any special moments you want to witness?


4. Are there any countries, places or locations you really want to visit?


5. What experiences do you want to have or do you want to feel?


6. Where do you wish you could be right now?


7. What are your biggest goals and dreams?


8. What have you always wanted to do but have not done yet?


9. What would you love to do together with friends or family?


10. What would you like to have achieved when you look back over your life?


“By replacing fear of the unknown with curiosity, we open ourselves up to an infinite stream of possibility”

- Alan Watts
