Hello, and thanks for stopping by!
What is bucketology?
Many people have traditional bucket lists comprised of personal goals to be accomplished over a period of months, if not years. While defining one’s goals is essential to personal happiness, I believe there is an inherent flaw with this approach. That is, most bucket lists are geared toward someday.
Let’s face it: some people are blessed to be able to hop a trans-Atlantic flight to Paris on a Friday afternoon. For the rest of us, our bucket lists are goals we will accomplish, someday (maybe), provided we have enough: 1.) time, and 2.) money.
So, what’s the solution?
Fill your bucket… NOW!
Listen, I understand the excitement of traveling abroad. (I even have my own wanderlust-infused BIG LIST.) But why should you spend your life waiting for that rainy day, when there are challenges and experiences waiting for you just outside your front door?
The answer is simple: you can enjoy just as much, if not more, personal fulfillment by creating a 52-week bucket list of items you can reasonably accomplish today.
Take my 52-week challenge
Henry Miller once said, “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” In other words, your personal growth and development has more to do with your perspective than your passport.
If you, like me, are interested in cultivating a deeper sense of purpose in your life, perhaps you will find something of value within these pages. Want advice on how to chart and navigate your own 52-week voyage? Feel free to contact me at randyshoward<at>hotmail<dot>com.
