My Bucket List

Figuring out my bucket list was tougher than I expected! The 2nd step in Christina Lohman’s book 6 Steps to Savvy is to come up with your own bucket list. It’s very important, but easier said than done! Right off the bat, I could only think of 19 things. It took some serious brainstorming (and letting my dreams get bigger) to get comfortable with the 50 goals my list, and I also added rough dates for when I’d like to accomplish these by. I can’t say that this list will happen exactly the way its written or that things won’t change. (One of my goals was to meet Steve Jobs. RIP Steve) I know I need to be flexible in life and to continuously reevaluate my progress and goals. I would also love to have many of these happen earlier than I mention here, but the first step is to define what you’re aiming for in life.

The most important thing is to have defined, written, and actionable goals that excite you and ignite your passions. When you do this, your subconscious mind (the 90-98% of your brain processing that you are usually unaware of) will align with your goals and that’s why this activity is so imperative to accomplishing them.
