Cool Bucket List Ideas

Updated February 21, 2017

A bucket list is a collection of things you'd like to accomplish before you die. Though it's been around for years, the concept was made famous by the 2007 movie "The Bucket List" starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. A bucket list can include anything from self-improvement and health to travel and adventure. Have fun and check things off the list as you complete them. Add new things as you think of them -- it's never too late.

Travel will allow you to experience new places and things. Travel goals can include visiting each continent, visiting 100 countries, seeing the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, spending time in your homeland, exploring a jungle or rainforest and visiting any other city or landmark. The possibilities really are endless when it comes to travel.


Adventure goals often go along with travel. Examples of adventures that can be added to your bucket list are skydiving, scuba diving, bungee jumping, running with the bulls, base jumping, running a marathon, completing an Iron Man race, competing in the Olympics, kayaking or white water rafting and learning to surf.


Personal bucket list ideas can include things related to family such as getting married, having children, adopting a child, retracing your family tree and hosting a family reunion. Other personal or self-improvement goals can be writing a book, reading one book a week for an entire year, reading the entire Bible, achieving a healthy weight, running a seven-minute mile and getting 10 per cent body fat.

Learn New Things

Add goals of learning new things to your bucket list. These can include learning a new language, how to dance, how to swim, how to sing, how to play an instrument, how to juggle, how to do martial arts, how to walk a runway, how to golf and how to draw. These things can be difficult or common activities that you haven't got the chance to participate in or learn yet.


Include career goals in your bucket list. Potential goals can be get your dream job, a promotion, working at the same place for 15 years, making more than £65,000 a year, a bonus, owning a business and eventually retiring.
