What do you want to do before you die?

I’m calling this Project 20. It’s twenty questions that I’m asking myself, and publishing every day. Welcome to the first edition.

Death doesn’t scare me. I know that one day, it’ll happen — and so I have to accept that. Instead, what scares me is the thought of running out of time to do everything I want to do in the world.

There is no guanantee that I’ll live until 80, or 50, or even 25. For all I know, i may die tomorrow. And so I want to ensure that every day, I’m living the life that I want to live. There’s no point on waiting to do the things I’ve always dreamed of… so might as well do them now.

I’ve written down a so-called “bucket list” of places I want to visit. Here’s my top 10:

  • Dive on the great barrier reef
  • Take a selfie with a Quokka
  • Drive along the Great Ocean Road
  • Swim with Dolphins
  • Visit every state in the USA
  • Explore the Amazon Rainforest
  • Climb a mountain
  • Trans Siberian Railway
  • Circumnavigate the world
  • Travel to 6 continents

Right now, ask yourself the same question: What do you want to do before you die? Make sure your actions map your ambitions, and go and achieve your dreams… before it’s too late…
