こんにちは、Synchronicityのしょーたろです。

起業してから多くの方々と話をする中で「失敗することよりも、やらなかったことを後悔する人生を送りたくない」という声をよく聞きます。

なので「死ぬまでにしたいことをリストにして、人生でやりたいことを叶えていきましょう」というメッセージを発信していますが、ある人から「死ぬまでにしたいことって英語で何と言うの?」と聞かれました。

死ぬまでにしたいことを英語に直訳すると “Things I want to do” とか “Things I desire to do” となりますが、実はもっとカッコいい英語表現があるんです。

それが “Bucket List”

 

Bucket List = 死ぬまでにしたいこと?

Bucket とは文字通りバケツという意味を持つ英単語です。

なぜBucket Listが死ぬまでにしたいことっていう意味になるのかというと、これは “Kick the Bucket” という言葉から派生しています。 首吊り自殺をする時にはバケツなどの台に乗り、首にロープをかけ、その後バケツを蹴って首を吊ることから、”Kick the Bucket” が “死ぬ” という意味で使われ、そのバケツに入れるリストが “死ぬまでにしたいこと” という意味で使われるようになりました。

少し暗い話になってしまいましたが、これから死ぬまでにしたいことを英語で言う時には、是非 “Bucket List” という英語表現を使ってみましょう!

 

死ぬまでにしたいことリストを英語で作ってみました!

「死ぬまでにしたいことをリストにして、人生でやりたいことを叶えましょう!」と言っている立場上、「死ぬまでにしたいことの英語はBucket Listです」では終われません。

ということで早速、僕の死ぬまでにしたいことリストを英語で作ってみました!
