You now have 6 months. What have you always wanted to do that you’ve never done? What emotional legacy you will leave behind: What do you need to say to the people around you? What physical legacy will you pass on to the world: Something written, something filmed, something painted, something composed? What song will they play at your funeral?
Really, you are supremely lucky. Most people never glimpse when their invisible ticking timeline will end. For most people, the chaos of their lives, journals, computer contents, half –finished projects, To Do lists, debts, bills, possessions will be scattered fragments gathered by loved ones. The people who love you the most will sift through your unfinished life as they process your death. Their conception of you will be changed by what they find amongst your stuff and your completion will be up to them.
You, however, have been given a date, December 31st, if you are brave enough to face it, you can finally bite the bullet and do the things you wanted to do. Follow me on this journey. You have 6 months. What can you do before then?
