FAQ's: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a 'Bucket List'?

A: A Bucket List is a list of things that you would like to do before you die, or kick the bucket. Some people refer to it as a 'life list' or simply a 'goal list'. You can list grandiose dreams like 'become a gazillionaire', or even down to earth goals like 'make peace with my brother'. You can make a list at any age and a Bucket list is dynamic, not etched in stone and you can change your mind. There's a power in 'lists' they help free and organise the mind...
