I wrote this post for another blogger as a guest writer and I thought it would be nice to share with my own blog’s readers. If you’ve been around Three 31 long enough, you know that I have a bucket list for 2012, including resolutions that I strive to achieve each month. If you do not have a bucket list, or resolution list or a set of goals, I encourage you to create one. =)
A bucket list includes all the goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill, and life experiences you want to have. It serves as a reminder of what’s important ~ your goals and dreams ~ and inspires you to accomplish them. A bucket list has UNLIMITED potential. It includes anything and everything, crazy or wacky, big or small.
If you already have a bucket (or resolution … or goal) list, leave a comment and share the link. I love reading lists that others have made. I’m constantly revising my own based on the ideas from someone else. Remember, a bucket list is a LIVING document. It’s going to change as goals are accomplished or revised.
Since 2010, I’ve created an annual RESOLUTIONS LIST of things I want to do throughout the year. I have also created a list called 99 Things that I want to accomplish.
To create a bucket list, get a sheet of paper (or open a new text document on your computer) and a writing utensil. Personally, I like to write so pen-and-paper are my preference, but you might be a digital kind of person. When you’re ready, answer these questions:
Write or type as fast as you can. Don’t worry about spelling or neatness, this is a simple list-making task that you can edit and revise later. Don’t stop until you have at least 100 items. If you get stuck, you’re probably limiting yourself. UNLEASH YOUR IMAGINATION!!!! Your bucket list is anything and everything you want to achieve, do, see, feel and experience in life.
Once you have your list, GET BUSY!!!!!!! Put your list in a place where you’ll see it every day. Share your list with others. This will not only keep YOU accountable, but it might inspire them to create a list of their own.
Finally, keep your list CURRENT. If you complete a task, cross it out. Read your list regularly to add, remove, or edit tasks.

I look forward to reading YOUR bucket list!!!!
