I am a true believer in getting your bucket refreshed every once and a while. In 2009, I started with a bucket list of 5 items. In 2011, I bought my Citroen 2CV Dolly (check!). In 2013, I got my Ph.D. in management from Case Western Reserve University at age 46 (Check!). From 2016 to 2021, I was the Chief Value Officer of the Thales Group (check!). In 2021, I got my Krav Maga Black Belt (ouch and check!). Then in 2021 and 2022, I finally got my tattoo after several delays due to COVID (ouch and ouch, check!). And in 2022, I published my 12th book!
Here is a sneak peak at the tattoo!
I have accomplished a lot in just ten years and my bucket list is getting shorter. I feel that I should eventually retire it and stop driving myself crazy. Nevertheless, I still have three items left:
- Attend the 2023 or 2028 Rugby World Cup.
- Walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru.
- Go on a long vacation in New Zealand.
