I have listed some things under ‘bucket list’ and I have new year resolutions.
Interestingly, there’s no overlap and that’s why my thoughts today are on the two.
My vote is for resolutions, though a bucket list has more profound and lifelong implications.
Sometimes I feel that a bucket list is not very positive, as it’s something one would like to do before he hits the bucket. When you don’t want to die anytime soon, the items in the list could be postponed.
But a new year resolution is taken somewhere near to the previous year end or on the new year’s day. As such it starts immediately.
And one has to work on it during a period of one year, after which it can beclosed, renewed or discarded. Then there’s new new year when resolutions are taken.
It’s upto us to be honest and imaginative with the resolutions. Three from my resolution list, for example, are:
1. Get a six-pack.
2. Try and get qualified for world masters swimming competition.
3. Build on the lucky chance and appearance in the movie and try and get more movie roles.
