What’s on your daily bucket list?


We all have our heavy duty bucket lists that include skydiving, scuba diving a shipwreck, and other big crazy fun events. What about the small things that you want to do on a daily basis? Those are just as important.

In fact, I’d say they’re MORE important than the big ones because let’s face it, those big ones most likely won’t happen today – and we’re not promised tomorrow. Not to be too morbid, but if you were to pass away in your sleep tonight, would you be satisfied with the way you spent your day? That’s what got me thinking about my list.

Here’s my daily to-do list, because you never know when it’s your last:

1) Laugh from the belly
One of those laughs where you don’t even care what people think of your laugh

2) Eat something healthy

At least one healthy meal a day

3) Spend a moment with someone

Not “spend time with someone”, but actually be there in the moment with them, listening to every word.

4) Spend a moment with myself

Meditate for 5 minutes, take a 10 minute walk, or just ponder this crazy thing called life for a moment.

5) Accomplish something

Big or small, doesn’t matter. Small accomplishments lead to big accomplishments.

    My bucket list: break bad habits, learn more about myself as much as I can,and take the time to learn about others, take the time to be here and now with my friends, learn to listen better what others are trying to tell me, work on spiritual growth, working on going to the gym, treasure the good friends I have in my life, alway practicing on staying focus and centering myself and bringing awarness of my surroundings!

      Wow, that’s a great bucket list Jaime! Do you have a time frame in which you’d like to master these things?

    I love this…a daily bucket list. I don’t have a formal daily list; however, at the top of my to-do’s I have a static list that includes my “me” time – Bible devotion/journal, reading 1 chapter of a book, listening to at least 15 minutes of an amazing positive audio book and of course fitness of some sort. This week I added that I must have a positive word for at least one person a day. I think I was averaging every other day, but it’s so awesome that I want to be cognizant of doing it everyday.

      Wow, that’s a GREAT list! Sometimes these lists seem insurmountable on a daily basis, but if you really break it down you find that it doesn’t take much time or effort at all. It looks like your list can be completed within a few hours, and that’s what you’ve dedicated to your life, growth, and well-being….and THAT. IS. AWESOME!!!

    In my mind, I think the best daily bucket list item for the day is something that scares you, causes you to get outside your comfort zone, confront things you otherwise would have shy’d away from doing… No doubt the perspective of a DBL is powerful – since every day is possibly your last day here, what do you have to lose by doing it? Nothing. I know we can achieve anything we set our mind to – it’s simply a matter of plotting the steps to get from point A to point B. But I think that we often miss getting to point B because we are unwilling to step outside our comfort zones – unwilling to take the risks, and do the things that scare us. That’s one way to look at your daily bucket list item… which should be the most important task of the day!

      I think that’s an awesome way to look at the bucket list actually. When we move outside of our comfort zone, a whole new world opens up. Yes there are new perspectives gained and fears overcome, but there’s also a whole new set of rules, people and things that come into our lives. It makes us grow. Love the comment!
