Who Do You Want to Be Before You Die?
When you mention a bucket list, many people think about the movie of the same name starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. The characters they play are critically ill, and as such they create a "to do" list of things to accomplish before they kick the bucket. The idea depicted in the film generated an interest in the public in preparing their own personal bucket list, including on them such items as activities to engage in or things to acquire during one's lifetime.
The No-Regrets Bucket List suggests there is also a need to create a bucket list for living, one that establishes the criteria for who we want to be during our lifetime, and how we can live a more authentic and purpose-driven life. This tool can aid the preparer in creating a more meaningful life, as opposed to winding up with regrets for the life they actually lived.
This book provides a sampling of bucket list ideas, and it encourages the reader to develop their personal list. Whether one chooses to create a bucket list or not, the book is filled with common-sense, realistic and inspirational ideas for living a meaningful life.

Reads Like a Meditation. I love the way Marion breaks the chapters into bite size pieces so that I am able to read it a bit at a time. She has a way of connecting with the reader. I enjoy reading the quotes and then reflect on how it relates to my life. I am able to let go of the past and focus on where I want to go in the future. This book is great for those who are starting out on their journey of self-discovery and for those who have been on the road for a while, this book makes a great refresher, a wonderful place to sit and relax a bit. So whether you are at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of your day, The No-Regrets Bucket List is a great read, leaving you with hope and inspiration.
Our book club read two of Ms. Witte’s prior books, so when The No-Regrets Bucket List came out, we were curious about it, as is seemed like a diversion from her previous works. We found it to be very much in line with the message of Courage of the Soul and Little Madhouse on the Prairie. This work is about becoming the person you were meant to be, and creating the legacy you want to leave behind. As we started discussing this book, we realized most of the women in our club have created bucket lists, to one extent or another, and they revolve around places to go, things to acquire or goals to reach. Marion’s concept of a bucket list is quite different – it is about deciding who you want to be in life – and taking the necessary action to achieve your desired result. The book contains a variety of ideas for determining who you want at the end of your life and suggestions for achieving that goal. The author even included blank tombstones at the end of the book so you can write your own epitaph! There are also an incredible number of wonderful quotations associated with each topic. The author is clear that you don’t have to create a bucket list in order to accomplish your life’s objectives, although it can be a helpful tool, reminder and guide in doing so. One of our favorite sayings in this book is -We are all going to be but a memory someday – so let’s make it a good one.
