The Bucket List
When Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson’s Bucket List graced Hollywood, a lot of people I know made their own set of goals. This flick about two terminally ill men escaped from a cancer ward. They headed off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die.
I remember I also made my own, too excited to tick off a few items that created a significant impact on my life. More than pushing me to look forward to something, a bucket list reminds me of life’s meaning and purpose. All the more that it gives me that sense of direction in life. And with a clear mental picture of what I would like to aim, I am motivated to achieve that goal. A bucket list makes not a monotonous regime but fills my days towards a ‘purpose-driven life.’
