Do You Have a Bucket List?

| June 13, 2017

Recently one of the coaching groups I take part in sent an email encouraging me too take the time to write out a bucket list. To put my thoughts on the right track, they provided a sample of “101 Things to Do before You Die.” I found it awe inspiring to read the thoughts of others. I believe that we tend to create our future and goals only around the things we already know which may cause us to become trapped in our current patterns. There were many intriguing ideas on this list that had simply never crossed my mind. For that reason, I would like to share it with you in hopes that you are able to add something unexpected to your list, too!
