Creating a Life List- Could Do:

In 2018, a year before my sabbatical, I created a document titled “Could Do Sabbatical 2019” – throughout the year, whenever something came to me that I’d like to do someday –making dandelion wine, singing in a women’s chorus, taking a pottery class, trying taiko drumming, etc., I’d just add it to the bottom of the list. On January 1st I sorted the list into categories to see what arose. These categories then became my focus areas (e.g., relationships, adventure, travel, spiritual).

From there, I highlighted a few of the things I think I’d like to take on this year. The list shifted over time. I thought I wanted to learn guitar but after investigating it, realized that I didn’t want to put in the time, and would prefer to bike instead. Life is full of choices, and I realized that this list is for a lifetime, so at the end of 2019 I renamed my list to “Life List-Could do”. It is there as a repository for things that I could do- and I don’t feel obligated to complete them all, but it’s fun to review from time to time. I invite you to try it out and see what happens for you.
