One Thing on my Bucket List


For 9 months now, I've had only one thing on my bucket list

Only one, because I wanted to focus on it.  I wanted to make sure it came true

From the great Mark Twain,...

"Behold, the fool saith, Put not all thine eggs in the one basket - which is but a matter of saying, Scatter your money and your attention; but the wise man saith, Put all your eggs in the one basket and - WATCH THAT BASKET!"

So I watched my basket very closely.  And now it's coming true

A 9 night adventure in the desert with no place to buy anything.  65,000+ kindred artistic souls all exploring / surviving / living together in a place where no other animal would be foolish enough to call home.  Just a bunch of crazy burners.  Sounds like heaven


I'm heading back to Burning Man.  My third trip.  And it's still impossible to describe


It's not easy, none of it.  It's too hot in the day, too cold at night and the fine dust gets into everything.  It's a trip that takes a long time to plan and prepare for.  Mentally, physically, financially

So that's why it's the only thing on my bucket list! 

A bucket list of 10 items usually ends up with 1 or 2 awesome, life changing events (that never get done or even started) and a bunch of 'nice to do someday' items.  Checking one of them off does little to feed your soul, but it does serve to distract and pacify you!

Don't settle for easy wins!  


So just pick one thing

One awesome thing to focus on

And start devoting your life to it.  Not your work life.  Not your social life.  Not your family life.  Your real, true life

The life you've been waiting to start

There is one regret of the dying that is common across all demographics.  People on their deathbed most regretted that they did not live a life true to themselves and instead did what others expected of them

Don't be that person!

The vast majority of people have no big dream to focus on.  They are a boat adrift with no destination

Any shot without a target is sure to succeed

In hitting nothing

In getting you nowhere

Hold one dream, one goal only in your heart

Succeeding in that one thing will be worth much more than completing 2 or 3 random goals!
