Bucket list/ Kick the bucket


A bucket list is a list of all the things you would like to accomplish/ achieve before you “Kick the bucket”, which is another way of saying, “to die”.

1. I would like to see the Great Wall of China, visit Iguaçu Falls and dive on the Great Barrier Reef before I kick the bucket. These are just a few of many places on my bucket list I’d like to visit.

2.  When you create a bucket list, you acknowledge that you will not live forever and that our time on this earth is limited. As a result you will begin to put things into perspective and use your time better.

3. If you keep putting off your dreams for “someday”, a bucket list will help you to get more focused.

4. In the movie, “The Bucket List”, starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, “Two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die” - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0825232/. The movie is both heartwarming and funny.



5. Do you need a lot of money to achieve the things on your bucket list… or maybe a lot of time? What is stopping you from achieving all of the things on your list? Is your bucket list achievable/ realistic? Do we need to be realistic?

6. What things would you like to learn before you kick the bucket?

7. Do you have a set of plans to achieve some of the things on your bucket list, or are you just waiting for the perfect moment to somehow come along?

8. How many of the things on your bucket list relate to what you would like people to remember you for, as opposed to things you would like to personally experience?

9. Towards the end of his career, Frank Sinatra sang, “I did it my way.” What would you like to be able to look back and say when you reach the end of your life? Is there any connection to the things on your bucket list?

10. If you would like some ideas for your bucket list, here is a list of 1000 interesting things to consider doing before you die: http://www.squidoo.com/100things
