Reverse Bucket List: The List You Need to Discover Clarity and Purpose

Did you know one of the main reasons many of us miss our marks each year is due to a lack of clarity in our goals? Today, I want to introduce you to a unique approach to tackle this issue: The Reverse Bucket List!

The Reverse Bucket List is an introspective exercise that can significantly help us find clarity and prepare our spirit for the upcoming year.

To begin, create a list of this year's accomplishments that filled you with pride and every experience that significantly impacted you.  This list will give you a glimpse of your natural talents and highlight what truly matters to you in both your personal and professional life. Often, we get so caught up in our daily grind that we lose sight of our true calling. This list will help you realize what situations brought you the most joy and fulfillment, and the skills you used the most when facing challenges.

For example, when I did my list, I realized that over the past 20 years, my communication skills have been my go-to asset time and again in every position that I have occupied. This insight helps me focus on projects and goals that use this skill because I already know I have a greater chance of succeeding.

What about you? Perhaps it's your gift for creating detailed, actionable plans, or your talent for networking and forging new relationships. 

The reverse bucket list gives you a glimpse into what truly excites you based on what accomplishments brought you joy and fulfillment.

I always say if I had money, I'd spend my days motivating people, particularly single moms, encouraging them to step out of this boat called "I AM STUCK!!!", and provide them with the necessary financial and personal development resources to go see what else is out there for them. Trust me, as a single mom, I can attest there is more, which is why I don't want people to allow their past and current circumstances to define their future or limit their life's trajectory.

What about you? What challenges do you excel at solving? This can assist you in setting 2024 goals that align with your natural abilities and passions. Wouldn't it be messed up to live a frustrated life due to misalignment because you have been operating in areas where you are not gifted and that don't even matter to you?

Finally, the reverse bucket list can be used as a reminder of your capabilities and strengths. Writing your 2023 accomplishments and then reading them over and over and aloud can empower your mind and give it the boost it needs to start planning 2024 confidently.
