Bucket Lists

So many people are talking about their ‘bucket list’ and what they want to accomplish. I guess I need to catch up with the times and create my own bucket list. But what is a bucket list, and why is it called this? Why isn’t it just called your life goals?

The concept of a bucket list comes from the 2007 movie “The Bucket List” where two terminally ill men take a road trip with a wish list of things they want to accomplish before they ‘kick the bucket’. There is even a site called bucketlist.org where you can read about other people’s bucket list, create your own and track your progress.

I may not have a bucket list, but I do try to create goals for myself at the beginning of the year. And just before I wrote this blog, I signed up for my first half marathon in May. This is one of my goals for 2013 so wish me luck. It’s in print here so I have to follow through with it now. Hey, the start of my bucket list has begun.

What's on your bucket list?
