A bucket list is full of dreams, goals and experiences that have not happened yet. You don’t need to justify, explain or mimic anyone else’s bucket list. Your list may have things you will never do because of money, technology, or health. Just thinking or dreaming about a list can be satisfaction enough – it might feed into a wild side or prove you have a creative and imaginative mind. Let me run you through a few things to get your bucket list juices going. You deserve to enjoy yourself and have fun.
I would like to ask you one question today:
What’s on your bucket list?
Is it full of fun, unaccomplished tasks, unfulfilled desires? Usually a bucket list is full of dreams, goals and experiences that have not happened yet.
I would like to invite you to take time out of your ‘to do” mindset and consider your bucket list.
Have you seen the movie The Bucket list starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman? You can see the trailer here. It is a great movie of two men who ‘collide and conquer’ as they live out their remaining desires and unaccomplished tasks. The language is strong but it is a great comedy and fun culture as both guys are so different. It is a must watch! I think you will be able to watch it for free too.
2. You don’t need to justify, explain or mimic anyone else’s bucket list.
This is uniquely about you. Your list may have things you will never do because of money, technology, or health. It doesn’t matter – it’s your list. Just thinking or dreaming about a list can be satisfaction enough – it might feed into a wild side or prove you have a creative and imaginative mind!
3. Let me run you through a list of a few things to get your bucket list juices going.
Again, no need to copy me or any of these ideas that I have seen on other lists. But use these as a launching pad to build your own bucket list.
Meet someone you look up to or always dreamed of meeting.
Reach a specific fitness goal of feet – like running a marathon or trying a triathlon.
Buy your dream house, car, boat, motorbike, or serious toy. By the way, mine is a 1967 orange mustang with black leather interior, just saying…
Do something on the wild side.
Be extremely generous to a worthy person or cause.
Try a new job or profession – even if its only part time. Or volunteer in a new venture.
Ask a special friend who you rarely spend time with to do a bucket list activity with you.
4. Finally, just let this be an enjoyable exercise with people who are meaningful to you and see if you can find a new way to have fun and enjoy life.
Remember, you’re worth it. You deserve to enjoy yourself and have fun.

Getting To Yes by Roger Fisher
Like it or not, you are a negotiator. You might be finalizing a deal with a new client, working through a legal matter, or trying to get your kids to clean up after dinner.
No matter what you are doing, you can learn a better way to negotiate from the book Getting To Yes. It’s called principled negotiation and it was developed at the Harvard Negotiation Project.
Persuasion by Robert Cialdini
For nearly three years, author Robert Cialdini did research about what practices encouraged people to say “yes.” What he found was surprising.
The best persuaders become the best through pre-suasion, the process of arranging for recipients to be receptive to a message before they encounter it.
Talent Is Overrated by Geoff Colvin
What do the best performers in their field have in common?Natural ability is the most obvious answer. But it’s not right.
The true answer is what each of them have in common was their fanatic devotion to something Geoff Colvin would call “deliberate practice.”
Every week I will provide you some more information on what a life plan is and how you can check out this incredible opportunity – thanks for your visit!
