BY now everyone and their brother has either seen The Bucket List or heard of it. Two geezers looking at death in the face go on a journey to do all the things they never did when they were younger and had the chance.
Now, it seems, people are making lists left and right with things they would like to do if they:
- had more money than God
- all the time in the world
- and a way to do it all
I’ve actually been to a seminar where the leader talked about writing down the 100 Things to Do Before I Die. Evidently, some famous guy – long dead – made such a list and accomplished almost everything. Some of the things I wouldn’t think were possible in my wildest dreams.
Of course, you have guys like Richard Branson who will do just about anything he wants but Richard does, in fact, have almost as much money as God so he can do just about anything he wants.
I guess at some level its about being fearless. At another level, though, it’s about knowing what you want. That’s the big catch for me. What do I want? Is it true that the more one acquires the more one wants and that, after a certain point, it doesn’t matter anyway? Lots of questions. Very few answers.
So, here you go. Don’t list your top 100. List your top 1 or 2 things that if you could do it or have it you would go for it.
It might give me some ideas.
