Step 2. Cleaning all unimportant things
Only the following types of wishes go to my Life List:
The list is not a plan of actions or steps necessary for achieving a goal. It is very important for the desire to fire your interest up, inspire you and toss you a challenge. In that case life becomes meaningful.
There are no mediocre wishes that can be characterized by "Let it just be here" or "I do not know why, but it is necessary" in the list.To the question "Why?", each wish MUST say "Because I really, really, really want it" for an answer. And that's all. That is enough for the wish to be in my Life List.
The very core of a wish is important. I try to formulate wishes as accurately as possible. The more precise they are, the easier it is to fulfill them. I note them down like actions, after the completion of which each point may be closed out from the list.
Although in my Life List for 2009
there were wishes that cannot be called very specific, like "To find true love," but at least I had a clear understanding what this love meant to me personally and what I was ready to do to find such love.Wishes with deadlines
Usually a bucket list is associated with a list of things one wants to do before his/her death. For me it is a little too vague for I do not know when I die. That is the reason why I write down everything I want to try in my life.
And then I assess how realistic it is to do this in ten years. I usually delete one or two points, leaving the rest unchanged."Eco-friendly" wishes and the ones that has to do with me only
Wishes like "To stop famine" or "May Trump leave the throne" are not included in my list.
If someone wants the same thing as I do, we can gladly combine our forces and dream about it together. But if not, I make this wish come true on my own without imposing it to anybody.
Also, I write down only those wishes that mean no harm to others and may not be fulfilled at anyone's expense. Therefore, the wish "To invade the world" failed at my filter.
