Topping Everyone’s Bucket List Is….

A few weeks ago I teamed up with skinnyscoop.com to do a Bucket list contest. Now the results from the competition are in! The winner of the contest has been notified but the fun doesn’t stop there.  I wanted to share the top ten items from everyone’s list:

Bucket List Results

So what do you think? Are these items on your bucket list too? To help your goals become a reality I recommend starting with a vision board.

It’s helpful to think about what you want from the upcoming year and specific goals you have in mind. I included Venice on my vision board last year and I got to go there in March. So start planning to make your bucket list dreams come to life in 2015!

Procrastination Planner Pinterest Giveaway

List Maker’s Hall of Fame: Bucket Lists

Paula's Bucket List Making a bucket list is one of the easiest lists to make. You know yourself better than anyone and it’s fun to day dream and work towards that goal one day. As my favorite lady Oprah says “you become what you believe.” So once you put it down on paper — you are one step closer to your goal. It’s one of the first lists I tell non-list makers to put together.

I’m sharing my bucket list today in hopes that you will share yours too! I’m introducing a new contest called the “List Maker’s Hall of Fame!” Once a month I will announce a new list category. Then a winner will be chosen at random and you will be featured on ListProducer.com and all of my social media outlets. I may ask you a question or two about your list as well once you win, 🙂
