That Bucket List Conversation

800 800 Patrick McCrann

If it’s not fun, why do it?

This framework has helped me make countless decisions as an athlete.  Yes, getting better requires work. But not all work has to feel like, well, work.

Just outside the boundaries of the sport you love, there are adventures that inspire the adventurous aspect of your personality. Putting bucket list events on the calendar provides motivation and a much-needed breather from the grind that can be every day training.

And not all bucket list events are created equal. Bigger isn’t better. Harder isn’t better. Friends, however, always make it more fun! Here’s how you can tap into the end-of-the-year mojo to make your upcoming season one that captures the imagination.

Speak Your Challenge to Life
Set a Go/No-Go Date to Commit
