Intentional Activity List (a.k.a Bucket List)

Reading Time: 4 minutes

After watching Bucket List with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman about three years ago I was really intrigued by the idea of creating a bucket list of things I would like to do. While watching the film I was aroused and really felt that sense of excitement and achievement with them as they ticked things off their list.

I know that for others, the idea of creating bucket seems a bit morbid but I have to say I actually liked thinking of things that would be really great to do. My focus is not on the ‘kicking the bucket’ but on the things I would like to do while I am still full of life and health. Putting the ideas to paper whether or not I think I can currently physically, emotionally, financially or mentally do everything on it and sharing the list with people who could possibly partner up in undertaking some of the craziness on this list excites me. One thing I realised when writing up my ‘Intentional Activity List’ is that it wasn’t just the big things I wanted to capture, but also the little things that are pretty cool but don’t somehow get round to doing. There are a few things that I have already achieved in the last three years which I have marked .

I wish I could say that this list was exhaustive but I as I grow and learn more about different things and the world around me, new adventures unravel themselves and tickle my fancy. However for now this is my list and I will make it a point to review and update it to ensure that everything on it is still relevant and will also share my experiences in ticking some of these activities off the list.
