Building A Bucket List

A bucket list is a great way to organize your life and goals. It helps people focus, work towards their dreams in a realistic manner, and reach their goals. At Darte Funeral Home, we believe these lists are particularly beneficial for individuals facing terminal illness or those in the twilight years of their lives. It gives them clear targets and helps them feel more motivated. Here are some tips on how to create great bucket lists:

1. Try Multiple Bucket Lists

You can organize your lists into various categories like finance, travel, hobbies or skills, and life goals. Some people even keep an ‘impossible’ list of targets they don’t think they can reach. Multiple lists allow more room for less important bucket list items and increase satisfaction as well. For example, you may not have been able to tick off a destination on your travel list but you met your big savings target on the list.

2. Realistic Goals

Make sure all of your bucket list items are as realistic as they can be. You should be able to accomplish all of the items with reasonable effort or investment. For example, writing a successful novel series is a laudable goal, but would it be a realistic dream for you? Do you have the time to invest in it? Put some thought in the bucket list items to keep the hope and motivation alive.

3. Experiment

Maintain a list of experiences or hobbies that you would love to experiment with. Many people add adventurous activities like skydiving or coral reef diving to their bucket list because they want to experience something new. a
