Do not wait until you’re way too old to enjoy your bucket list
So why do we wait until we are too old to actually enjoy all of the stuff we wish to do? Look around you at all of the older travellers finally doing whatever they needed to do 20 years ago.
Do you think anyone lies all over their death bed thinking I wish I had worked some more? Start right now, grab that notebook and pen, make your list of the next ten things you would like to do if you die this year.
- Travel to a strange state and eat strange food
- Learn a new language and talk like a local
- Go parachuting, flying, skiing, ballooning anything to make you hold your breath
- Go live in another country and experience their lifestyle
- Write your own novel
- Stand next to the Effiel Tower or under the pyramids and feel the power of the ancients
Close your eyes for a second and think of what you will regret not doing if tomorrow was your last day. Did you realize that future is surely the very last day at some point in your life?
As we get older our systems find it harder to walk steep stairways, or trek along jungle trails, or run from bulls. Why wait and miss those chances to truly live your life?
365 is the magic number
Everybody gets the exact same number of days annually to do a thing with. Go buy a dairy with a page for every day and begin writing in every day, an exercise that you’d love to do.
Fill your whole year, 365 days, with activities and events that would become your life’s work. Challenge your friends to do something fascinating every month and also have a prize for the most fantastic experience.
Believe me, when I say you don’t wish to be the forlorn man waiting in a cold carpark to do a thing so simple, he put off for his entire working life. We take life for granted and we need to STOP that and begin doing what we like to do.
“If your life was a book title, what would it say?”
Now’s the perfect time to write the title, get out of the rut and step into your life today.
