The peak season for Goal setting...Submitted by Bart Wisniowski - Hacktrepeneur and blurnalist on January 3rd, 2017
As predicted, we’re seeing a huge increase in activity on Bucketlist.org from our members signing on to create goals and resolutions for the new year.
To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, from Dec 31 - Jan 3 our traffic has increased roughly by 300%+ over a typical 4 day stretch sometime August.
We’re seeing a lot of activity, but here’s a few fun ideas that caught my eye in the last few days:
- Dine at the Cereal Killer Cafe Camden (looks like this place has any cereal you can think of)
- Jump of a 10 meter diving board
- Create a polaroid wall
- Meet someone from the Games of Thrones Cast
- Finish the Goodreads reading challenge 2017 (basically read 2017 books by end of 2017!! That would be incredible!)
- Learn a new Language
- Travel (basically any country/landmark you can think of has been added to bucket lists in the last week)
- Do a memory jar for a year
- ….. And all the popular ones you can think of like traveling to places, losing weight, falling in love, getting married, having kids, etc…)
It’s inspiring to see all the new goals and Bucket List items people are coming up with. Activity like this makes it clear that people don’t want to settle in their lives.
They want to keep pushing, growing, learning, and improving. The desire to constantly renew and change your outlook is universal.
If completed, the majority of our most popular goals, like the ones above, present a turning point and a new path forward for the achiever.
For instance, the experience of planning and training to complete a marathon will enrich the lives of those who have worked hard to acquire those skills long after the race is finished, in many other ways.
That’s what makes the Bucket List experience so great- watching people hit goals, and become new, improved people in the process.
So what are your goals and resolutions? How will the energy and effort you put into achieving them serve you and change your life well after the goal has been reached?
It’s time to get busy writing down what you want in 2017 and beyond.
Don’t limit yourself! As you continue knocking things off your Bucket List, you will become a different person, with more skills, talents, and resources than before.
Get the momentum started to become the best version of yourself possible.
