ACTIVITY 1 – BUCKET LIST

CLE 9 is about helping you figure out WHO you want to be and how to get there. This includes thinking about graduation, education and career options, health decisions and financial decisions. The question you have to ask is “how do we plan our life when we are not sure what you want?”

Some of you may have very clear goals in mind while others may not. We are going to start our planning program by brainstorming what we want to accomplish in our lives. We will do this with a “bucket list”,  a list of things you want to do before you ‘kick the bucket’.

What 100 experiences would you like to have before you die?

  • – What would you like to do for a living?
  • – Who would you like to meet?
  • – Where you you like to travel?
  • – Where would you like to live?
  • – Are there things you would like to own?
  • – Do you want to have a family? Big? Small?
  • – What else?

List the things that you would put on your bucket-list in the linked “BucketListTemplate“, save the list with the naming structure “LastName-FirstInitial-CLE-BucketList” and email your completed list to Mr. Follett (mfollett@sd35.bc.ca) with the subject “CLE9 Assignment 1” by Thursday, September 19, 2019.

Think about ANYTHING you personally want to have, be or do

  • How do you picture yourself and your surroundings when you are 40, 60, 80?
  • Who do you want to be when you are 40, 60, 80?
  • Where in the world do you want to be when you are 40, 60, 80?
  • What kind of world do you want to live in when you are 40, 60, 80?
  • Home – where are you living?
  • Education – courses, reading, conferences
  • Health & Fitness – exercise, nutrition, medical, sports, martial arts
  • Relationships – family, spouse, parents, children, siblings, friends
  • Fun Time – vacations, trips, sports, reunions, special events, hobbies
  • How do you see your work or career life when you are 40, 60, 80?
  • Projects, partnerships, products, services, office, mentors, partners, clients, colleagues
  • Income, savings, what you own, retirement (financial independence), financial significance
  • Community & Your place in the world—How do you see the WORLD and you in it when you are 40, 60, 80?
  • How do you fit in with your community? Local, provincial, national, global?
  • What contributions do you make? – charitable, volunteer, service mentor?
  • What will your world look like? – sustainable, multicultural, clean, safe?

Not everything has to be big, but it needs to be personal. The most important thing is to know that right now there are no limitations. This is a personal list you may or may not choose to share with your classmates. There are no right or wrong answers, but it will be something to reflect back on later in the year.

Please email your completed list to Mr. Follett (mfollett@sd35.bc.ca) with the subject “CLE9 Assignment 1” and your attachment (properly named!) by Thursday, September 19, 2019.

(As with all our assignments, there will be a reflection to complete shortly as well, but we’ll get to that shortly.)
