What is a Bucket List?

A bucket list is a collection of goals, dreams and aspirations that you would like to accomplish within your lifetime. The basic meaning of a bucket list is to keep track of your goals and to take steps to achieving these goals in order to maximize the incredible experiences in your life. 

Due to the bucket list meaning and definition, some people have some strong emotions about the term, mostly because it is a reminder of their own mortality. But, a bucket list is really about living life to the fullest with all the hours you have left on Earth.  Other terms you can use are:

  • Dream List
  • Life’s Aspiration List
  • My Lifetime Goals
  • Things to Conquer
  • My Life’s Must Dos
