The Bucket List

I think having a bucket list (or you can call it a “before I die” list) is really important. You only have a finite amount of time on earth, and if you don’t have a list of things you’d like to accomplish or do before you die, how do you know what to work towards? We all have things we want to experience or accomplish. Write them down so that you can start planning on how you’re going to tackle them. Some might take you years, even a decade or 2 to accomplish, others might be as quick as later this week.

If you want a little more insight into bucket lists, listen to Rich Mulholland’s quick chat about why you should have a bucket list:

And if you have a few more minutes, watch “Before I die I want to…” TED Talk by Candy Chang. It’s really great.
