6 Months to Live?

I met Jacqueline Boone at the PINK conference in San Francisco. One of the things that I did there was ask everyone the question, “What would you do if you only had 6 months to live?” Ironically, most people I meet say, “I would travel the world!”

It might be because the people who are drawn to me are jetsetters, but I think that there is something more profound than that. Perhaps, at the end of our lives, the one regret we might have is that we did not go on that dream trip to (fill in the blank) or that we did not take the time to see the world.

So, when I got an email from Jacqueline telling me that my question started her on the journey, “What would you do if you only had 6 months to live?” blog. I was inspired to share her experiment. She calls it “An Experiment in Living.” She asks, “What could you do in 6 months?”

It is so inspiring to see young women like Jacqueline pursuing a passion and chronicling it. So, I ask you….

What would YOU do if you only had 6 months to live?

Me? I would fly first class around the world visiting all the incredible places that I have not seen I would take a camera and interview as many wonderful people that I could, I would learn about their culture and what they value. Then, I would share it with the world. And, hopefully, through me living my passionate life, I will inspire others to do so as well.

Because, as Buddha says, “World peace, through individual happiness.”
