Fresh from Leo’s zenhabits this morning is this insightful post about Bucket Lists.
here’s what happens when you make a bucket list:
You put this huge burden on yourself to get the list accomplished. As if we don’t already have enough on our to-do lists already!
If you don’t do well at pursuing the things on the list, you feel guilty or underaccomplished.
If you do well at pursuing the list, you are probably pursuing less-than-meaningful activities. They’re usually just there because they sounded cool to do.
As always Leo has some great suggestions for an alternative approach.
