Most people will know this term from the recent Hollywood movie, „The bucket list“.
The list refers to everything we want to do before we die.The buket list also gives us some details about a person’s passions. In my experience as a life coach sometimes it also makes sense to set the list before a big change in life. For example – the first child. Why do I do that with my clients? Because I think sometimes in life we think that we will miss something or we forget to do something before we become a mother/father or a husband/wife.
So the worst thing could be to look back and think „I missed something and now its too late“. Yes, “too late“ is some other problem we sometimes make in our head but, for this moment let’s take it seriously.
- On the list for me it is important that there are only realistic things (so we really can do that)
- short-term goals (less than 6 months)
- long-term goals and some goals we will be waiting for in the future.
