The Bucket List: How to craft the life of your dreams

Rules to writing your Bucket List:

1. Get clear on what you really want. Write that shit down. Declare it.

2. Play BIG. No point putting small, easy, safe options on your list; you gotta live large and dream large, homie.

3. Change it as often as you need to. Add things, remove things, whatever you gotta do. You're going to change, so expect your goals and dreams to evolve too.

4. Be open to ANY opportunity to tick something off your list. Courage is a necessary element of the bucket list.

5. Don't give a damn about what other people think of your list. It's all about you, dude: ignore the haters and naysayers.
