As a 1st activity for all of us, especially all our new arrivals, I’d like to suggest a Life List activity. Some people call Life Lists “Bucket Lists.” The idea is to take a bit of time and really think through what you’d like to accomplish. It’s nice to do it for several time frames, like:

  • The 5 Months of Medici University @LEA23
  • 2015
  • 5 Years
  • Lifetime

Making Your List

One great way to develop your Life List is to freely brainstorm. Just write down anything that comes to mind. After that you can go through all the things you’ve thought about and see if they lead to other things you’re interested in. Some might seem unimportant and you can cross them off. After you’ve got a rough list that you like, you can assign items to different time frames: this I’d like to accomplish during Spring Semester at MU, that is more of a 5-year goal.

If you look online you can find lots of Life Lists and Bucket Lists, but before you spend too much time thinking about other people’s dreams, it’s a good idea to try to scribble out some of the things that are really important to you.

Sharing Your List

Your list doesn’t have to be public. It can be private. If you do choose to share it, you can compare your list to your classmates lists, discuss ideas, and help with resources and support.

Places to post your list:

Wherever you do post your list, be sure to leave a link to your post in the comments below so we can all share & discuss.

Discussing Your List

It might be impossible for everyone to meetup for F2F (avatar-2-avatar) discussion. But we’ll set some times that you might meetup. No worries if you can’t make an F2F meetup, just post your link below, and let’s all be sure to look and comment on each other’s lists.
