Ah the bucket list. The idea came up over a decade ago, and it’s meant to be inspiring and lofty, and so many people have adopted the practice of keeping a bucket list for those things they would like to do in their lifetime.

In this episode, I’m going to share where I think the Bucket List trend falls short, and what I feel is a better approach to making these all these dreams you have come to life.

Bucket List with Paula Jenkins


Here’s what I’ll be sharing in this episode:

  • How Bucket Lists got their start
  • What the term “Bucket List” means, and where the saying came from
  • Why I like “Life List” better as a term
  • Why your list might not be working as well as you’d like, and how to change that
  • Creating an Inspiring, Actionable, and Joy-filled Bucket List
  • How to set an intention for your Bucket List (what the point of the list?)
  • How to leverage mindfulness in determining what goes on your list
  • What to do if you begin to feel overwhelmed by the amount of things on your list (and question where half of them came from)
  • How to begin living your Bucket List, and seeing the goals you’ve put into play come to life.
