Well, 2017 is behind us and we are into 2018! As always, time flies and New Year’s rolls around faster than we expect it to.
I started my bucket list eight years ago with #86 Go for a Polar Bear Swim and have been working away at it ever since. New Year’s is a time that we associate with new beginnings. For some it is a diet, a work out plan or a new hobby. For me it was my bucket list, which continually reminds me to never stop searching for the next adventure.
In 2018, I’m sure a lot of you will challenge yourself to a new beginning such as the examples I have listed above. For some of us, simply managing to write “2018” instead of “2017” on documents for the next month can count as a life goal.
But if you’re looking for something that is going to take you past 2018 and 2019 and 2020… try writing out your bucket list. Bucket lists are not for everyone but I encourage you to at least check on my page, Launch Pad, which is designed to help you get started on your bucket list journey. It is full of examples of bucket list items and also has great resources, such as a formatted bucket list template and a bucket list starter guide to help you answer those questions about how to begin.
If you have had a look through these resources and still have questions, send me and email at DavidMacleod@bucketlaunch.com. I would be happy to answer your questions and would enjoy seeing you begin your journey.
I often describe my bucket list as a road map through life. When I am planning an adventure, I look at my bucket list to see what I can incorporate. The items I have on my list have been responsible for taking me to new cities and countries around the world. Each adventure is filled with new experiences that teach me something.
If this sounds like something you want to experience for yourself, the time to start is now!
