Before You Die…

This week I’m on a business trip. But I’m not so busy that I can’t go on some adventures I’ll talk about in the next week or so. In the meantime, here’s a photo of a chalkboard I saw installed at one of the places I visited.

What would you write on the board if you were there?

  1. …ride a hot air balloon.
    …drink coffee from the rooftop of a Vietnamese hotel (again).
    …learn to do bicycle climbs like Landa.
    …read the complete adventures of the Three Musketeers (not just the two that make it into films)
    …fall hopelessly in love with someone who would do the same with me.
    …write the perfect sentence.
    …take an Alaskan cruise.
    …go zip lining.

    Wait…did you only want one? Could anyone stop at just one?

    1. These are really great and I love the full entry version as well. I like to think of myself as a climber but definitely not relative to others – only relative to myself. Imagine if I were *that* strong a climber! And drinking coffee from a rooftop in Vietnam? That sounds like a great story!

      As for how many you could share – you definitely aren’t limited to only one. After all, I’m not the one who chooses just how many of these anyone gets to do. 🙂

    1. I know – me too! As I think about it I also find myself asking myself the question “What’s stopping me?” Because, as you say, you can’t predict how long you’ll live. If you can do it now, now is the time to do it. You may not be given another chance.

  2. I have heard several time if you know tomorrow you are going to die, what you do before that? — Actually I had thought not to do anything just relax and spend time with myself
    But again you ask it different way that ….”before die ”
    If I know and get enough time before die, I will just prefer to fill in the gap because I know this is the most important work, I want to do before I die

    1. Don’t feel sad! You’ll notice I didn’t answer either. There are lots of things I want to do but am also content with what I have done. I do want to help more people but specifically how is to be figured out.

  3. I think my dad had great wish to talk to all the beloved ones before die and his wish granted by almighty. He died the next day of the ‘Dashara’
    . On Dashara'( before one day) he called all the loved ones and talk very happily enthusiastically. He was not used to call and talk but only very needed time. I was in Mumbai that time I felt unusual and something strange would going to happen and unfortunately I was correct. Very peacefully he bow his head before his father-in-law for forever….Exactly what he wanted …

    1. Yes. I could see that. As I commented elsewhere I am not entirely sure what I want to do beyond “make a difference” but that is a vague and completely unmeasurable thing. Clearly I need to work on this question.
