Building a Bucket List

Thursday, October 22, 2020

People often feel they aren’t living their life to the fullest. Being busy in your everyday work routine can make it difficult to make time for your interests and ambitions. It is never too late to fulfill your dreams and check off that to-do list. We, at Arbutus Funeral Service, encourage everyone to make a bucket list as soon as possible. We have come up with a brief guide to help you with it:

1. Choose Your List

Bucket lists are made for different reasons according to your preference. It can be the places you want to travel to, cultural festivals worldwide you want to be a part of or artistic endeavors that you want to accomplish. It is important to be clear about what you want to achieve through this- career advances, fitness goals, or just life experiences. This will keep the process organized and have more meaning.

2. Be Realistic

It often becomes difficult to strike things off your bucket list if they aren’t very practical or feasible. So it is important to have reasonable aims to accomplish. Moreover, to ensure you go through with all your plans, you can come up with interesting ways to motivate yourself. You can decide on pursuing certain goals before a certain age. Having quarterly goals and achieving them within that time also helps.

3. Take Inspiration

It is normal to be confused about the variety of things that you can include on the list. Your social circle sometimes knows things about yourself that you don’t. You can talk to your family and friends and ask for their suggestions. They can also give you company while achieving your goals. This makes the process even more engaging.

We, at Arbutus Funeral Service, provide comprehensive funeral arrangements and other required services. For more information on related topics or to associate with us, feel free to contact us or register at
