Match the Bucket List form to your Lifestyle
Spreadsheet and online Bucket lists are not the best ways for computer challenged people to create and manage their goals. A bucket list can be managed better on paper, journals or organized collections in the home. One key to completing bucket list ideas is by making a list in formats that are parallel to your interests and lifestyle. Personal lesson plans can work for teachers and musicians may be able to write a song about their bucket list ideas. Matching the bucket list to your lifestyle will encourage more action because there will be daily reminders of those life goals.
Schedule Daily Actions to Complete your Bucket List Ideas
Bucket list ideas can be like New Year’s Resolutions once you procrastinate on life goals that were planned. Write out your bucket list ideas on a wall, desk or online calendar to complete on a daily basis. If your goals are general, plan them out as small actions toward one larger goal. Purchasing big ticket items or going on vacation may require you to save a certain amount of money first. Start at the end, saving money and work your way up to afford that vacation trip instead of writing “Visit Ireland” under a random Tuesday listing on your calendar. If you plan to learn another language, try learning foreign versions of your favorite songs instead of immediately splurging on Rosetta stone software.
A Spanish version of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” single may be quicker to grasp on one week than the entire dialect spoken throughout The Dominican Republic. Smaller actions lead to completing bucket list ideas over time for men and women who work at these plans consistently. Wall calendars are not the only option for writing down and keeping track of actions toward completing bucket list ideas. You can print out an online calendar and attach it to a wall, door or refrigerator. A portable organizer like the Palm Pilot is also another way to stay on schedule with daily actions for bucket list ideas.
Create Bucket List Refrigerator Magnets
There are many commercial printers who will make custom magnets that can be used to complete bucket list ideas. You can also purchase photo magnet kits from craft or art supply stores and make your own. Make one small magnet for each goal on your bucket list and add these magnets to your refrigerator. Remove every completed goal on the refrigerator, as you move through them to complete your bucket list ideas. Add new ideas or actions to be taken toward bigger bucket list items by making extra refrigerator magnets.
