What is bucket list?

A bucket list is a list where you include all the things you want to experience and do before you kick the bucket and leave this world.

Things that you want to experience include things that you want to see, listen to, touch, taste and feel in your body, mind and spirit.

Things you want to do include things you want to learn, receive, own, enjoy, give, create and contribute.

The term “bucket list” has been popularized since the movie The Bucket List made a debut in 2007. What is the movie about?

Two elder men of contrasting economic backgrounds became friends during their stays in a hospital after being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. In UK between 2006-2008, only ~ a third of lung cancer patients survive to a year, making the survival of lung cancer is amongst the lowest of all cancers.

This is the story of two previously strangers brought together by the disease. The genius Carter who is a family man, a blue-collar mechanic, and a history lover, started to write a bucket list but soon discarded it upon learning that he has less than a year to live.

Fortunately, the discarded bucket list was discovered by the rich Cole, who is a curmudgeonly cultured loner and civet coffee lover. Cole added more things to do to the list, urged Carter to do everything on the list, and offered to finance the trip.

They jet-set their final months together as a pair of best buddies, doing exciting things (skydiving, riding on a motorbike on the Great Wall of China, sitting on the Great Egyptian Pyramids) and re-discovering life: love, beauty, and kindness.

If you have not watched the movie, please do so. I personally include The Bucket List in the Best Movies List (according to my perspective).

Why do you want to create your own bucket list?
  1. Having a bucket list allows you to live a purpose-driven life.
  2. You can use your bucket list to define your values and design your life.
  3. Whenever you are happy, simply ticking or adding a few things into your bucket list can make you feel grateful.
  4. Having a bucket list is like having a travel map to ensure that you stay true to your inner voice, when you are faced with tremendous distractions.
  5. When you are experiencing challenges and setbacks, simply gazing at your life list give you power.
  6. Your bucket list is a blueprint of milestones, goals and targets. Sometimes someone may motivate you, but it is always healthy to be able to independently self-motivate yourself and your endeavors.

How to create your own bucket list?

"A bucket list should not be full of impulsive stuff that we pick up as we go along through life. It shouldn't be like grabbing a chocolate bar off the display rack." ~ Tatsuya Nakagawa, the author of Overcoming Inventoritis: The Silent Killer of Innovation

Gently interview yourself. Look deeply into your heart. Search inside yourself.

What is the meaning of life? What is the meaning of life to you?

"As each situation in life represents a challenge to man and presents a problem for him to solve, the question of the meaning of life may actually be reversed. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible." ~ Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Emil Frankl

Everyone has a unique meaning and perspectives of life, though many times we can find similarities.

It is true that when our meanings of life align - even if just partially, it is easier for people to make deep connections and engage in relationships, like Carter and Cole did.  

Having similar yet unique meanings of life is just like how we share over 99.9% of DNA, but every human being is unique. Your mission is to discover and develop your own uniqueness, leave your voices and footprints.

The following questions can help you designing your bucket list:
  1. What are your biggest purposes and dreams?
  2. What do your childhood dreams really mean?
  3. What will you do if you have unlimited resources (time, money,relationships)?
  4. What would you like to say to and do for your loved ones?
  5. What are your talents? 
    "Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God." ~ Leo Buscaglia
  6. Whom would you like to meet?
  7. What would you like to learn?
  8. Whom would you like to learn from most?
  9. What places that you want so much to visit?
  10. What have you always wanted to do but have not done yet?
  11. What legacies would you like to leave to the world?
  12. How can achieving your dreams and goals benefit others?
  13. How can you give more joy to others?
  14. If tomorrow is your last day of living, what would you deeply wish to do?
  15. If you were going to leave our planet earth a year from today, what would you do differently?
  16. If you had three years to create something that change your family, your community, or the world, how would you begin?
  17. If you were forbidden from accruing vast material wealth, how would you live your life differently?

Each of us is connected in this universe. Often, some things in your bucket list overlap with others’.

When you are young, you may not have the privileges of experience. Learning from the experience of others through direct interactions, books, blogs, podcasts, talks, videos, talks and conferences can widen your horizon and create more possibilities in your life.

You can read ten thousands of books, travel ten thousands of li, and realize ten thousands of dreams. No limit!

The only limitation is you yourself, if you do not free yourself to take the necessary actions.

Therefore, release yourself. Allow your deepest and most sincere heart tells you what your purposes are.

Clarity on your purposes enables you to focus and act on them.

Like a scientist who pursues his or her curiosity in solving a problem of a question, you stand on the shoulder of giant. You refer to people who have designed their inspiring bucket lists. Some things will resonate with you.

You can do anything, but not everything.

Therefore, you must add only things that are meaningful to you into your bucket list. It is always good to prioritize.

Your bucket list needs not be static. Like life, your bucket list is ideally dynamic.

After you have achieved some things, you can add new things into your bucket list. Sometimes, as you travel in your life journey, you may have some significant or subtle changes in your life's values and attitudes. It is okay to eliminate some things from your bucket list.

Your bucket list can be for your own view only (private) or public. It is up to you, really!

Personally, I enjoy learning about the bucket lists of other people and derive joy from knowing that they dare to dream big and have worked hard to achieve their goals.
