The start of the new year is a great time to write your own 'bucket list'

A little over four years ago, I kicked off a project that’s turned into one of the best and most fun things that I've ever done.

In December 2011, I drafted a 365-item “bucket list” and tried to accomplish as many of the items on the list as possible during the ensuing year. I got off to a slow start in early 2012, but in mid-May 2012 I began to make a conscious effort to scratch off at least one bucket list item a week. By the end of the 2012 calendar year, I’d managed to scratch 42 items off my list.

In January 2013, I expanded my “bucket list” from 365 items to 1,000 items, and between Jan. 1, 2013 and Dec. 31, 2013, I managed to scratch 66 items off my list, a little more than one item a week. In January 2014, I again expanded my list from 1,000 items to 1,111 items, and between Jan. 1, 2014 and Dec. 31, 2014, I managed to mark 83 items off my list. In January 2015, I once again expanded my list from 1,111 items to 1,500 items, and during the 2015 calendar year, I scratched off 62 of my bucket list items.

If you’re reading this and have never tried to write your own “bucket list” you might find that writing one is harder than you would think. As many of you will already likely know, a “bucket list” is a wish list of things you’d like to do before you “kick the bucket.” Many of you will be familiar with this idea thanks to the 2007 comedy, “The Bucket List,” which starred Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.

I’ve always kind of walked around with one of these lists in my head, but I’d never taken the time to actually write down my list until December 2011. Something about the act of writing these goals down makes them seem more concrete and do-able. Setting a weekly deadline for myself in May 2012 also seemed to help me accomplish more of them and really ramped up the project.

Before I go any further, I want to say that this project is not about me, and I don’t do it to write about myself or to brag anything that I’ve done. One of my main goals is to show people in the reading audience that they can also do many of these same types of things, many of which don’t cost a dime. I hope that my “bucket list updates” have and will continue to encouraged others to get off the couch and do some things they’ve always wanted to do. With a little planning and a little effort, you can do a lot of cool, memorable stuff. I’m just a regular guy, so if I can do some of this stuff, so can you.

How many of you out there have bucket lists of your own? What sort of items do you have on your list? How many of your personal bucket list items have you already accomplished? Which were your most memorable? Which were the most difficult to accomplish? Let us know in the comments section below.

In the spirit of the start of another new year, what follows is my new and expanded bucket list. You’ll notice that it’s in alphabetical order, which I did on purpose to keep from duplicating entries. This year, I’ve also expanded the list once again, moving from 1,500 items to 2,000 items. Most of the items were on my list last year, but I also added a few more to replace those that I scratched off the list during the past 12 months. Please feel free to “borrow” any of them that you’d like to do.
