What’s on your Bucket List in 2015?

A Bucket list is a checklist of all the cool stuff you want to experience or accomplish before you die. What do you want to create or experience in 2015 and beyond?

I know death is on my dance card but I am not chasing after it, nor running away.–KD

Popularized by Rob Reiner’s tragic comedy starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, the point of a bucket list is to help you live your life to the fullest.

Following is a list of approximately 50 things I have accomplished from my bucket list. I hope it inspires you to create your own. And then, to share it with your friends. Some of the best items on the list are not just difficult feats but actually require community support.

Your bucket list will not just make you a better conversationalists at parties, but requires personal growth– It’s not just something to brag about, but to work towards. The most satisfying bucket lists are goals that are aligned with your deep values. (Perhaps that’s why I start mine off with Sex.) At the end of my list I have a category called CHANGES which contains all the things that I am no longer interested in doing, perhaps because they are things at some point I “should” do, but now I am only interested in doing that which really lights me up!  It’s your life. It’s your list. Enjoy.
