My musings usually come from reading other’s blogs or comments made on my own. Here are a few that were sparked in November: Bucket List Accomplishments After I blogged about dropping things from a bucket list (link here) and saw the comments, I had the urge to look at my “real” bucket list to see … Continue reading November Musings
While I have sometimes called my Seasonal Plans a “bucket list”, they are in reality 3-month action plans. I do have a more traditional bucket list, the things-to-do-before-I-die kind-of-list. There are some things that have been on that list for years. And I’m starting to think I should drop some of them from the list. … Continue reading Updating the Bucket List
Summer Solstice is here with the longest daylight hours of the year. Here at our beach cottage, that means we are often at the beach till early evening, as the sun remains high in the sky! Summer solstice also signals the midpoint of the year (how am I doing on yearly plans?) as well as … Continue reading My Summer Bucket List
Since I completed my Retirement Transition book (more to come on final publication!), I’ve been feeling the need for a new “big project”. Keep in mind, I love (need) a plan! It was suggested I just start writing my next book. And that is a possibility. But I wondered about other things to explore this … Continue reading 19 Possible New Things to Explore in 2019
Not quite a new year’s post, but this is a look back - look forward post. I’ve been using seasonal bucket lists this past year instead of "action plans" and enjoyed the slight modification in thinking. My first seasonal plans were very detailed to-do lists. This autumn, I took a different approach with only 10 … Continue reading Seasonal Bucket Lists
It’s hard to think about Autumn Adventures when the temperature is still 90F (and heat index over 100F). Summer is supposedly over this weekend, but Mother Nature apparently disagrees. Even if it still feels like summer, the calendar says it is time for fall action planning. And I find regular recapping helpful to celebrate what … Continue reading Summer’s Over?
I realized recently I’ve put a lot of effort into planning this year… maybe more than any planner needs to be doing! I have my word of the year (SOAR), a 52 New Things in 2018 goal, and seasonal bucket lists (summer action plan). With all this planning, how successful am I in activating the … Continue reading Mid-Summer Goals Review
I'm learning that my seasonal bucket lists get me moving - the "A" in SOAR being Activating. They are actually an amalgamation of a bucket list, a check list, and an action plan. By putting it out there (in public), I feel compelled to do more of it than if it was just in … Continue reading Continue to SOAR
Participating in the blog-link-up on Seasonal Bucket list has not made spring arrive any sooner this year. In fact, winter is hanging on longer than I can ever remember. However, it is time to consider - has the extended winter kept me from activating my Spring Bucket list? My Spring Theme had 10 New Things … Continue reading Spring Bucket List Update – Am I Soaring?
I was inspired to create a Winter Bucket list by a group of bloggers (thanks Christie Hawkes) who regularly share their seasonal lists. They take a slightly different approach to their bucket list as it’s focused on just the three months of the season and therefore more specific and short term. I was pleasantly surprised … Continue reading Spring Bucket List – to Soar
