You would never believe it. I was totally caught off guard the other day… watching the Sonic the Hedgehog movie (with my kids, of course).
In what seemed like a kids movie with cheap laughs, came a more meaningful scene and the conversation of having a Bucket List. Intentionally giving thought to the things you would want to experience or accomplish before the end of your life. A powerful concept for kids to grasp that can give them significance and perspective.
This past week on LINK with Loveworks, we had the opportunity to sit down with Mike Hoang, a young, serial entrepreneur, and listen to his passionate stories that surround his bucket list. Look at this inspiring list!
– Become an MMA fighter
– Climb a mountain
– Visit Vietnam
– Backpack across Europe
– Buy his first house before30
– Live in a tiny house
– Become financially independent in 30’s
– Speak in front of 500 people —> spoiler alert: he now speaks in front of crowds 15,000+
If you haven’t seen the 2007 movie The Bucket List, starring (Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholsan, it’s a great watch. Because you see the transformation of two men to embrace living intentionally and learning what is really important in life.
The pandemic has brought a “reset” into a lot of our lives. It has shown us what is important. What we can live without and what is important for living. I cannot think of a better time to dust off your bucket list, or start one for the first time.
We like to say at Loveworks that you are never too young to be a dream and never too old to do your dream.
So, how do you start? I’ll make it as easy as 1, 2 & 3
- Find a journal, legal pad or notes page in your phone and set your timer for 20 minutes.
- Pretend that you have a year to live and an unlimited amount of money. What would you do?
- Circle one thing on your bucket list that you will commit to working towards this summer.
- What is one small action you can take tomorrow to work towards the item you circled on your bucket list?
It is never too early to begin a bucket list, don’t wait for that someday that may never come – Annette White
