161 ‘Very Different’ Bucket List Suggestions

By | 2011-06-30T04:55:49+00:00 June 30th, 2011|Article|6 Comments

While you are looking through this list, note the ones that would make you the happiest if you were to achieve them. They are the ones you need to really start working towards.

My suggestion is to add an activity to the one that you Bucket List items that you pick. That way, you will become a lot more emotionally involved in the process and you’ll be able to visualize yourself actually achieving the end-step of the Bucket List activity.

For example:

Which beach and with which Learn To Surf company do you want to Learn To Surf?

By adding specificity, it becomes real, doesn’t it? It also forces you to research that Bucket List activity and the steps to achieving it will naturally appear.

Get specific & ENJOY!

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
