The Bucket List
If you're chasing after the bucket list idea, you’re going to ask yourself what’s the point? A bucket shouldn't be full of impulsive stuff that we pick up as we go along through life. It shouldn't be filled with stuff that others talk and dream about unless it genuinely resonates with your dreams. Chasing others dreams would be similar to having a hole in your bucket.
The most gratifying things to go into the bucket for most of us are those that are part of a larger context. For instance, visiting the Great Wall of China would more than likely be a more meaningful experience. Acquiring that larger context or framework is something that can and should take careful and thoughtful consideration. It often takes hard thought and hard work to develop.
