Bucket List

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:08 am

C263788 mThe “Bucket List” has been described as the things you want to do before you die. I have an alternate view. I believe many people have those things catalogued as things that have to happen before they live.

In other words, we put off living until we do one or more of the things on our list. That list of things may never happen; in fact, they have a good chance of not happening. So you die without living.

I wonder how many people on their death bed lament that they never went to Hawaii. My guess is few or none.

It seems the real goal is to fill up your bucket with living, not to postpone living.

When “X” has to be in place for you to live, you lessen your chances for living.

I believe the creation of a Bucket List indicates that people are dying to live, but are putting that living off to some future date.

Here’s a novel idea: Live now!

Each moment presents us with the opportunity to live now, but we ignore that invitation hoping that we’ll get a better offer somewhere down the line.

Please continue to make lists of things you would like to do; they are tasty carrots that keep us motivated. Just don’t make the mistake of waiting to live in the process.

Final thought: If you are waiting to live, your bucket has a hole in it.

All the best,

John
