Alright, so it’s not the most fun thing in the world to think about — dying, that is. And yet, I’ve mentioned before how it’s actually a good practice.
You’ve heard of the proverbial “bucket list,” and I guess I thought one up for myself the other day. It’s not very long, nor is it very broad. But, it’s mine. I’ll share it with you now, but I’m also curious what you have on your list.
- Build, and then sell a business for over $1MM
- Visit all 50 states
- Visit a country that nobody would advise going to (Iran, Syria, etc)
- Become recognized as an international idea-machine-consultant-thingy
- Be a keynote speaker in front of thousands of people
- Build something that changes the world. Or at least changes somebody’s world.
- Become a billionaire and give 90+% of it away to various causes.
- Go on a long-distance cruise. None of this Caribbean shit.
- Own a house on a beach. Any beach. Anywhere in the world. As long as you can hear the ocean when the windows are open (and they will always be open!)
- Be on CNBC for some reason. Preferably not because I’m going to jail.
- Meditate under the Bodhi tree on Bodh Gaya
- Teach somebody (preferably multiple somebodies) an invaluable skill that will earn them over $1MM
- Run for political office, win or lose (losing may be the preferred end result!)
