Made your bucket list yet?

I read about the Bucket List today – starring two actors I really like: Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, (the man most people visualize when they remember “God”). In this movie, two terminally ill people decide to make a list of things they want to do before they finally die or ‘kick the bucket’ and therefore the title.

What a great idea – to make a “Bucket List”!

My Mom always encouraged me, from when I was very young, to make a wishlist. We would then divide it into weekly, monthly and yearly goals. Of course, as I grew older, and understood better (and reality bit, quite hard sometimes), I also began to make 5-yearly goals.We would stick our list on the fridge, because we got to see it everyday. Focus 🙂

Well – much later, when I read and attended all those “how to achieve your goals” related books and training programs, I realized that Mom had already built the foundation.  Oh, yes, Mother was right. Again. Lucky Me.

Funny thing was – we actually checked quite a few things off our list during our “review” – simply because we had goals in sight; and worked towards them. Nice focus. So, today, it is habit for me to work towards something.  I also encourage Vidur, my son to do the same.  I have to admit that I’ve learned a thing or two about focus from this kid, more like a whole new dimension!

I think it is a terrific idea to make that bucket list –  some of the things on my list – in no specific order – are:

  • Renovate home  (work in progress)
  • Write a few books (working on them)
  • Lose weight (working on it)
  • Get a massage (too easy, so God knows when)
  • Get a Kyondo bag (or two)
  • Build a library (real books)  (work in progress)
  • Change my hairstyle – cut it real short (not sure if that will happen, but what the heck!)
  • Establish an account for regular charity contributions (up and running)
  • Travel within India (in progress)
  • Go on a world cruise (hmm…likely to happen)
  • Visit Europe (likely to happen)
  • And so on, and so forth

That list goes on and on, but I don’t want to bore you with my list.

What’s on yours?  Care to share?
