Whatever graduates are planning to do -- whether it’s entering college, attending graduate school, going to work, or some other path -- there are a number of experiences that they should consider tackling as part of their personal growth and evolution into adulthood. A great gift for members of the Class of 2019 and beyond, The Graduate’s Bucket List serves as a practical starting point to help students take steps to build a life of personal accomplishment, and navigate through life’s various challenges.

“The exercises in this book are meant to inspire ideas about the experiences that make life fulfilling. Many of these items are things you may have thought about but never tried. Each chapter includes the impact each item can have on your life, practical tips for getting started, and some things to consider as you incorporate it into your own bucket list,” says Taylor.

Among the exercises Taylor suggests for recent graduates:

  1. Learn to Solve a Rubik’s Cube: This is more than just a conversation starter or an interesting party trick. In this chapter, you’ll learn some surprising benefits that come from learning to solve one of the world’s most famous puzzles.
  2. Get Published: Seeing your work in print is a powerful feeling. In this chapter, you’ll learn why writing can add to your sense of fulfillment and how to get started in today’s digital publishing environment.
  3. Complete a One-Year Pyramid Save: Saving money is important, but it’s not always fun. In this chapter, you’ll learn five simple ways to break up the monotony of building your savings and challenge yourself with this long-term goal.

“This list was compiled from my own experiences and those of friends, family, and mentors. While some of these items may speak to you more than others, I encourage you to review them all and spend some time considering how they might impact your life. If you’ve already accomplished some of these items, use the inspiration in this book to develop your own ideas,” added Taylor.

The book is priced at $14.99 and available for purchase on Amazon. An e-version will soon be available for $7.99.
