Think about it you never know when you are going to die even then you take your life for granted. There are lots of things that can happen to you.
While it can be difficult to figure out what matters most to us even when considering that we might die tomorrow, perhaps it’s easier to notice what matters least. If you knew you’d die tomorrow, what would’t you do? What activities would you definitely not include in your last 24 hours? Web surfing? TV? Email?Work? What people would you not spend even a moment of your last 24 hours with?
Make a list of all things that you thought of doing when the thought of dying come to your mind.
What do you want do?
- Sleep under the stars.
- Walk on beach with a loved one
- Read a book
- Laugh more
- Go to Paris
- Live in a foreign country
- Complete a Ironman
- Sleep on beach with nothing to do
- Make new friends
- Catch a fish with hand
- Learn a new language
- Watch rain
- Become a minimalist
- Travel the world
- Learn to fly a plan
- Complete a childhood dream
- Go to Disney land
This are some of things that I can think of make your own list at least 100 things you should keep a piece of paper and take that piece of paper everywhere you go.
Keep thinking of things that you want to do in your life. Keep writing it feel like you have get everything on paper do not edit your list before it is above 100. Just keep writing what ever come to your mind.
Now what are things that you don’t have on your list but do everyday even then you don’t have to do them like
- Watching TV
- Listen to other people talk about there problems
- Surrounded by negative people
- Worrying about things that might not happen
- Getting depressed
- Not feeling good about yourself
- Living in the future
You will make a list of all this things also that you do not want to do but do them anyways.
It may be hard to imagine that you can die anytime but we all know that it is the truth. So please give your self a favorite and do what you love to every day. Even if you cannot devote a lot of time to that activity you give 1 hour or 30 min.
Always remember that you can die any day so live your life today.
So how can we do more of the things that we love?
To do more of things that we love we first have to know what you love. If you have followed the above instructions then you have two list one of things that you want to do and another of things that you don’t like to do.
Now what you have do is underline the things on the list that you have of things that you do not like that you can eliminate now.
For example watching too much TV and take anything from the list that you want to do replace it like meditation.
So for next 21 days you will meditate when you would normally watch TV.
After 21 days of doing that it doesn’t matter if you fail to do it one or more time in those 21 day give yourself a break. When you learn something new you are going to fail some time so don’t be so hard on yourself and except that it is not a perfect world and you are not perfect.
