Daily Coping 5 May 2020

I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.

Today’s tip is to make a bucket list of things to do before you die.

Before The Bucket List, I heard Ted Leonsis talk about his 101 things to do before he died on the radio. I used to have my own list, but I think it’s lost on a server somewhere in the basement. One day I’ll see if I can get it back. In the meantime, I’m making a new list with my wife, because we have chosen to spend our lives together and our goals are shared.

Today, I’m listing a few items on the bucket list. This isn’t complete, nor is it ordered.

  • Visit Tokyo
  • See Mt. Fuji in person
  • Ski in Japan
  • Ski in New Zealand
  • Visit China and see the Great Wall
  • Hike Mt. Kilmanjaro
  • Visit South Africa
  • Own an electric car
  • Build a chair by hand
  • Drive through the Florida Keys
  • Work for a charity full time (kinda did this)
  • Hike Machu Picchu

I have more, but this is a good list to start with.

    How about, “catch a Nippon Professional Baseball league game”? (That’s on my bucket list!) 🙂

    LOL, if I could, be nice, but would be a lower priority than skiing or Mt Fuji

    I’ve only pulled off 1.5 of the items on this list. Narita airport doesn’t count as Tokyo but close. But I can vouch that the Florida Keys drive is bucket-list-worthy. Done it twice, and once with the now-wife. Spectacular.
