Headshotsmirk

In Episode 13, I share the earth shattering news that….You are going to die!

I explain why your life hangs by a thin fucking thread and how incorporating this “deathbed” mentality into your mindset can put an end to procrastination.

I start the episode with a blunt disclaimer that I am no guru or role model. I’m just a regular guy struggling to improve my life and fighting for my own Second Half Comeback. I’ve been thinking about this “thin thread” lesson for several years now and still struggle to incorporate it into my daily life on a consistent basis. Full disclosure: I lived this lesson. I believe and understand that my life hangs by a thin fucking thread and I still struggle with procrastination, fear, uncertainty and just general laziness. This doesn’t make the lesson less valuable. It just means that redesigning your life can be difficult and we need to figure out a way to incorporate this mindset along with other key lessons into a well rounded game plan for executing our own Second Half Comeback. So honestly, I feel like this is one of those episodes and lessons that just needs to be heard. Please just take a listen and then take a few minutes to ponder the message and what it means for your life.

If I had to sum up the message as a few takeaway bullet points, It would look like this:

  • You are going to die!
  • You think you have time but your life hangs by a thin fucking thread.
  • This is actually good news: As Steve Jobs Said…

 

‚ÄúRemembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.”

  • If you were lying on your death bed right now, what would be your biggest regrets?
  • Make these things a priority in your life immediately and daily.
  • Stop waiting, Start doing!

That’s It! Listen to the episode. Take the lesson to heart. Be thankful for everyday that your still breathing.
