A friend had always planned on buying a yacht when he retired. However, this year he was diagnosed with cancer which, thankfully, was treatable and he’s now recovered.
The illness has forced him to rethink his life and he’s decided to buy the boat now, rather than waiting for retirement. He’s right, too. So often, we put off things we want to do until that magical ‘retirement’. The problem is, we may not live that long and, even if we do, we may be too old to do some of the things we have always dreamed of.
So if there is something you want to do, don’t wait – do it now.
It may not be anything as exotic as buying a yacht. You might have always dreamed of writing a book, travelling to a certain country, climbing a mountain, owning a sports car, keeping bees… The list is endless.
Sit down and make a list of all the things you want to do in your life – a bucket list, if you wish. Then, go through it and pick three things that you would like to achieve over the next 12 months. Now, make a plan of how you are going to achieve those things and take massive steps over the next 90 days to kickstart your way towards hitting your goals.
