Bucket List ideas For Living Your Best Life

A bucket list is a collection of experiences or achievements that you would like to accomplish within your lifetime. Creating a bucket list is a great way to brainstorm and keep a record of your life goals.

We all have goals or things on our to-do lists. But they usually relate to a specific social context (e.g. performance, career, health). A bucket list is much more broad than that. It’s a list of everything you’ve ever wanted to experience or achieve; big, small, purposeful or random.

Creating a your Bucket List

Your bucket list is personal to you. The best way to come up with what you want to include is by asking yourself these questions:

  • If you were to die tomorrow, what would you spend the last day doing?
  • What would you do if you had unlimited time and money?
  • What have you always wanted to do but have not done yet?
  • Where would you like to visit?
  • What are your biggest goals and dreams?

It’s up to you where you record your list. You could blog about it, write it down, bury it in your garden or have it on your phone. Whatever your plan is, here are some ideas to help you create your bucket list.
