Yesterday, I wrote about the importance of being mindful of your path; that is, considering all aspects of your life when setting goals, and continuously evaluating those goals as you grow and progress.

Those that neglect to do this can often find themselves in situations where their primary career objective is achieved, but at a cost they didn’t foresee – be it having to live in a town they don’t like, or having almost no free time.

This isn’t a spot you want to be in, so be sure to read the post and start setting goals that span all areas of your life if you haven’t already!

I also talked about the importance of setting specific goals in addition to general lifestyle goals; goals like learning a new language, traveling to a foreign country, or building your own blog.

I chronicle all of these goals in my Impossible List, which is a more active and deliberate take on the bucket list concept.

However, I didn’t just sit down and make up all these awesome goals. I drew inspiration from lots of places. Sometimes I became inspired simply by seeing an awesome time-lapse video and wanting to visit the places in it.

Other times, though, I straight-up stole goals from the bucket lists of other people. In fact, it was the goal lists of two of my heroes – Joel Runyon and Steve Kamb – that inspired me to create my Impossible List. By doing so, I’ve been driven to do some things I probably wouldn’t have otherwise.

That’s why today’s post is simply a list of some of the best bucket lists I’ve found online.While I don’t really like the term “bucket list”, as it implies a fixed list of things you simply hope you’ll do, it’s more ubiquitous than better terms like “Impossible List”, or Steve’s Epic Quest of Awesome – that’s why I’ve used it in the title of this post.

Check out the lists created by these awesome people, and maybe you’ll find a few items that you’d like to add to your own list!
