Why Bucket Lists Are A Total Waste Of Time

  1. 1. WHY BUCKET LISTS ARE A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME?
  2. 2. THE BUCKET LIST Up until 2007, with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholas’ movie, The Bucket List, people just had a running list in their heads of things that they wanted to do after they retired, or before they died, or ‘kicked the bucket’.
  3. 3. WHY WAIT TO DO THINGS? This idea of freakin’ waitin’ to do the things one wants to do in life until they’re standing (or close to standing) on the welcome mat of Death’s door…well, it’s ludicrous!
  4. 4. LIFE’S BIGGEST REGRET When nearly all people who reach their deathbed have as their biggest regret that they lived how everyone thought they should rather than the way they truly wanted, why then would good, intelligent, beautiful souls decide to risk waiting to really live?
  5. 5. LET’S FACE IT There are no guarantees on how many tomorrows any of us have. Yet nearly all of us regret that there was more we wanted to have done with our lives .
  6. 6. SO THE BUCKET LIST, DOES IT REALLY WORK?
  7. 7. TRULY LIVE Sure, there might be real time obstacles. But, there are those who overcome these obstacles to really truly L-I-V-E. They had the COURAGE to stand up to those ‘Yeah but’s” playing over and over in their heads.
  8. 8. IS FEAR HOLDING YOU BACK?  Fear of being judged for stepping outside of the norm  Fear of falling short  Fear of not being “enough” against some unknown measuring stick  Fear of being too old/too young
  9. 9. LET’S BE HONEST We ALL have fears, silent ones that plague us, that hold us back, that have us live smaller than who we really are.
  10. 10. DAMN THE TORPEDOESBut what sets us apart from those who just punch in and out of life, is when we decide to Damn the Torpedoes, to just fuckin do it, to get hellbent on figuring out how to do it, whatever that IT is.
  11. 11. OTHER SIDE OF FEAR Rare opportunities, fortunate twists of fate, breathtaking experiences, and legendary, life-changing moments are all found on the other side of FEAR.
  12. 12. EAT AN ELEPHANT Well how do they say that you eat an elephant? Right – one bite at a time. You start small, one step at a time, like in your own backyard, in your normal day
  13. 13. RECLAIM YOUR LIFE IN 3 STEPS 1 Fight Fear With Fear 2 Fly Your Freak Flag 3 Soak Up The Rewards
  14. 14. STEP 1: FIGHT FEAR WITH FEAR
  15. 15. OSTRICH HEAD Are you afraid of your life staying the same? Are you afraid of future regrets of the decisions you make today? Most people try to stuff their fears or hide from them like ostrich head in the sand.
  16. 16. BIGGER, HAIRIER, SCARIER Make it bigger, hairier, scarier, badass-er, than your fears of failing, of being different, of not being enough. When you fear what didn’t happen more than what could happen…then you’ve got some serious jet fuel! Yeah – its kind of a mind screw, but damn, does it work!
  17. 17. STEP 2: FLY YOUR FREAK FLAG
  18. 18. GO WILD it’s time to get out there and find your fun! Look for opportunities to step outside of your norm, your routine, and to do, see, be things different than you did yesterday. Stretch. Go wild.
  19. 19. FIND LIKED-MINDED PEOPLE Find people too that support you on this journey – people that say you ‘CAN’ vs those who say you ‘CAN’T.’
  20. 20. STEP 3: SOAK UP REWARDS
  21. 21. EXPERIENCE THE NEW When you step out of your routine, your comfort zone and find adventures, sure you’ll have fun and more interesting conversations with family and friends, but your biggest reward will be the CONFIDENCE that builds with each new experience
  22. 22. SEE THE POSSIBLE This renewed confidence will help you see the possible in the former ‘impossible.’ You will believe that IT can indeed be done; whatever that IT that has been itchy at you forever.
