Description: Have you ever amazed what does Bucket list truly means and how to create a bucket list? Read the post to know how to make a bucket list and best strategies to create a bucket list.
Everyone has marked some goals in his or her life. Therefore, many of us already have a mental bucket list, just without the formal label and now looking to create a bucket list. But before creating a bucket list you must have a clear idea in your mind about the bucket list and how it can play an important role in our lives.
WHAT IS A BUCKET LIST?
There is no specific definition for it. People have defined different terms for this but according to my opinion, a bucket list can be perfectly defined as:
“A bucket list is a collection of goals, dreams, and aspirations that you would like to fulfill within your lifetime.”
There is no one specific prescription, no right or wrong way of filling a bucket list. It simply belongs to a personal journey between you and your aspirations. Your bucket list should be different from others because it is meant to reflect what you most desire in your own life.
WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE A BUCKET LIST?
I think we should always strive towards living a worthwhile and intentional life. If we only dream and wish for things but don’t set goals and plan how to achieve them, we’ll most likely find ourselves caught up in a mundane day-to-day kind of life.
HOW TO CREATE A BUCKET LIST?
Here are some key tips regarding how to create a Bucket List.
- SET THE MOOD
You must be very clear before creating a bucket list. Either the things you are going to include in your list are your own wishes or you simply following others wishes.
- FIND A PLACE TO SAVE IT
You can’t store every wish once in your life. So there must be something where you can store your wishes. Although it purely depends on you which way you choose to save them I will highly recommend “NOZBE ”.
That’s the main part of this. It is natural that all of your dreams or aspirations can’t be big or you can’t ignore your small wishes. Here is a chance to accomplish your all small, medium and large dreams and wishes. Your list should include things you can do or want to do regardless of their length.
For your ease categorize your Bucket list in the following pattern.
Easy Things: it can be your daily wishes or can be accomplished within your town or city with less budget. For example, Movies, Book reading or even you may want to learn how to make pasta?
Medium Things: A bit above level of easy things. For example, climb a mountain, make a Top in your studies this year, start a youtube channel or write a book.
Large Things: The things that seem to be very hard to accomplish at the start but not impossible. For example, adopt a lion, meet the president, win a gold medal, sky drive, etc.
- NAME/EDIT YOUR LIST
Choose a perfect name and theme for each dream so that I can motivate you to achieve it. A name can significantly impact on your ambitions so try to name your every wish as something challenging.
- BE S.M.A.R.T
The most significant thing is the goals you pick need to be S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound).
These were the important factors which can help you in creating a massively good bucket list but this never ends here. Below are some other ways which can play a leading role in creating a bucket list.
- CONSIDER VALUE AND IMPORTANCE
- CONSIDER COST-VERSUS-BENEFIT
- CONSIDER THE NUMBER OF ITEMS
- REMOVE UNREALISTIC ITEMS
- INCLUDE A VARIETY OF GOALS
- STAY ACCOUNTABLE
- BE FLEXIBLE
- REVERSE IT
Concisely go through your list and choose what items to start with. Choose goals that excite you the most and think about what can you do RIGHT NOW (well, right when you finish reading this post) to make it happen. It might be the goal itself if it’s a small one, or it can be something that will get you started (a phone call or an e-mail to someone that can help you).
