How long do you still have to live? Do you know? Does anyone know?
What do you still want to accomplish in your lifetime here on Earth? Build an Orphanage, giveaway a Million bucks, sell vinyls on the street corner?
Each and every person has different goals that they are set out to accomplish. They want to make X amount of money to by X amount of clothes, cars, houses, boats and stuff that don’t really matter to anyone, but themselves.
Now a lot of people don’t really have goals set up. They haven’t taken time to sit back and write up a list of To Do’s because they think that they won’t be able to complete them. They feel that they need to be making millions in order to reach their dreams.
Who ever said that you’re just going to start making a lot of money? NO ONE! You need to work your way up, blood, sweat and tears are part of it. Now the problem most of you have though is that because you feel inadequate to complete your goals/dreams you feel that it isn’t necessary to setup a list of goals and dreams.
You couldn’t be more wrong though. Now I’m aware that you most probably need to be guided and helped into setting up your goals lists as you aren’t sure exactly how to prioritize them, but that’s an article for another day.
Today I want to simplify your process of setting up goals. I want you to setup a bucket list. A what?
Bucket List Definition: a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying.
I want you to sit down for a half hour and write out all the things you want to do before you die. Like what you might wonder.
Well have a look at my bucket list.
It consists of simple categories (yes this bucket list isn’t close to being complete) that make up the list. You can add in whatever categories you like and add items to those categories to complete.
Whilst setting up your bucket list you will notice that a lot of the added items are part of your dreams and goals that you might have. So now you are busy setting up a goal list within the bucket list…pretty decent right?
So the great thing about setting up a bucket list is that you will be automatically setting goals for yourself and by ticking off some things on your bucket list you will realize that it brings so much satisfaction to see something completed that it will excite you to finish more on your list.
Have fun with it.
