Making a Bucket List

May 20, 2016

This blog is a little off topic from my usual posts, but something that has been on my mind very much lately, and I thought I would share it because it may (hopefully) inspire you. I’m 32, I don’t consider myself old, but I don’t consider myself young either. At this stage in my life, I’m not really thinking about “kicking the bucket” (that’s where the name “Bucket List” comes from), but I am starting to wonder if I’ll ever accomplish my goals and dreams.

The first thing to consider when creating a bucket list is discerning between a goal and a dream. A goal is something attainable through hard work, perseverance, dedication, and focus. A goal is “SMART” – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound. A goal has reasonable grounds with pragmatic steps. A dream, on the other hand, falls into the “I wish” category. It’s something we would love the opportunity to have/do, but the likelihood or reasonability doesn’t exist. For example: A goal could be to save money to go on a Caribbean vacation. A dream would be to own your personal island. (I suppose for some people out there, this is realistic, but for most of us, not so much.)

Here’s my Bucket List. I have compiled a mix of my goals and dreams, because why not. I haven’t included anything I’ve already accomplished, because those have already been scratched off the list.  I’m hoping by sharing this list with you, you could gain a better insight into who I am and who I would like to be.

  1. Own my own home
  2. Own a brick-and-mortar store for our products
  3. Travel to Europe (I’ve been to Russia and South Korea, would love to see more)
  4. Retire on a rescue-ranch to save abused and abandoned animals
  5. Pay off my student loans
  6. Become an assistant principal
  7. Have our business be so successful that we need to take it over full-time
  8. Learn how to change a flat tire
  9. Become a PhotoShop master
  10. Publish a novel
  11. Run a full 5K in under 30 minutes

Have you thought about what you want or what you would wish for? It’s important for your future and well-being to visualize yourself completing and accomplishing your goals. You have it in you to do anything you truly want to do; just ask yourself if it really is what you want.
