My Bucket List

Things To Do Before I sleep forever

“Every man dies – Not every man really lives.” ~ William Ross

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ~ Joe Lewis

“Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.” ~ James Dane

The objective of creating a bucket list isn’t to get into a race against time or to create aversion towards death. The whole point of a bucket list is to maximize every moment of our existence and live life to the fullest. It’s just a reminder of all the goals we want to achieve during our physical existence.

This is my Bucket List – things I want to do before my journey on this beautiful planet get to its physical end. There is too much to put down in this list, but will start with following (in alphabetical order)

I’ve recently found that sharing bucket list with other gives you additional motivation and accountability to follow through. Sometimes friends and readers can offer advice, help, or partnership on some goals. If you’d like to assist, advice, suggest, help, or partner with me in crossing anything off the above list, please leave your comment below.
PS  : – 

If you don’t have a bucket list, I recommend you to create one. How much time it will take? Probably half or an hour, :). What do you gain? Significant clarity and focus on what you want from your life. It’s an invaluable experience and inspiration to live life to its fullest. !

Don’t just read my bucket list though – Create your own too and live life to its fullest.
