Make a To-Do List!

And I’m not referring to your average, everyday, chores list. We all agree that finding a good work-life balance is essential in surviving to retirement. But your personal life should not just consist of washing dishes and taking out the trash. Why not make a Bucket List? It is a list of everything you want to do before you… kick the bucket. This will make your life outside of work much more interesting, give you something to look forward to during the week, and inpsire you to try new things. And it’s great conversation starters when networking or interviewing.

Making a Bucket List can seem daunting at first, but there is nothing you are required to do, and no certain length it has to be. It is totally meant to be things to challenge and make YOU happy! They can be places to travel to, books to read, food to try, movies to watch, and physical activities. You don’t have to do things that scare you, but you may want to include opportunities to face your fears. For example, I’m terrified of drowning and open water, so I put a glass bottom boat ride on my bucket list.

To get you started, here are some ideas: read Moby Dick, bungee jump, learn to play pinochle, learn to play the guitar, try out for American Idol, witness Fashion Week, build a treehouse, climb a tree, catch a fish, see Mount Rushmore, learn the constellations, learn to speak Italian, make your own BBQ sauce, fly a kite, see your favorite singer in concert, or bowl a 300.
