Bucket List: 30 by 30

At the beginning of the month, I turned the wise age of twenty-six. It’s really nothing special, twenty-six. It feels a lot like twenty-five. I recently realized how much older twenty-seven sounds though! I am not getting any younger. So I decided I needed a specific bucket list for the next four years. Below you will find thirty things I want to do before I hit that big 3-0. Some of these should be easy, some will take time. Some are serious, some are super silly. But they all mean something to me. It all goes back to self-discipline, which is something I think and write about a lot.

We should take the time to plan and save for the things we want to do and accomplish. Stop thinking and start doing.

I really need to start taking my own advice…. Let’s do this.

  1. Get a tattoo
  2. Pay off my credit card
  3. Have consistent revenue as a blogger and freelancer

  5. 1000+ Blog followers

  12. Go to L.A.

  14. Visit Minnesota

  16. Become a regular volunteer at a theater or venue
  17. Get a new camera
  18. Write and Record my own song
  19. Record and master my own album of covers
  20. Upgrade my Blog to have more design/function control
  21. Be something awesome for Halloween
  22. Get a larger apartment
  23. Run a 5K

Start Bucket Listing Today!

As a blogger you quickly become a list maker…if you weren’t already one. I’ve always been a collector, a compiler, a gatherer.

Today I’ve created a list of bucket lists. Yes, that’s right. A list of lists.

Everyone has that never-ending to-do list of things they want to try, places they want to go, things they want to learn. And now I dare you to rally those ideas and thoughts. Corral the to-dos and to-don’ts. Lay it all on the table. And make your list(s).

It can be a….

  • Standard Life Bucket List (Include it all!)
  • University Pride Bucket List
  • Travel Bucket List
  • 30 things by 30 years old Bucket List
  • Season Specific Bucket List
  • This Month Bucket List
  • Sporting Event Bucket List
  • City Specific Bucket List
  • Country Specific Bucket List
  • Skills/Knowledge Bucket List
  • Must See in Concert Bucket List
  • Books to Read Bucket List
  • Movies to See Bucket List

The list of lists can go on and on!

Becoming ultimate is about doing. It’s about giving, learning, growing, and just plain living. Take hold of opportunities and run with them. Clench your fists and say yes to a challenge! I recommend the “Life Bucket List” to all. The “big list,” the “ultimate list.” This includes everything, but particularly your long term goals.

The rest of the lists include short term, very achievable goals. Perhaps one you can accomplish this week, or today! The short term items will act as stepping stones or benchmarks to your long term items. If you achieve everything on your “this month” list think of how much progress you’re making on the big list!

Of course, if you’re anything like me this list will keep growing as you experience new things. But you’ll only become that much more interesting.

Below are some possible list making tools and bucket list examples:

Make your list and try to check one thing off by the end of the week! It can be simple! But make it about something YOU want to do. We’re not talking about chores or errands! Do something for yourself.

Please share!! I will do the same.
