The Buried Life & one year of Personal Training….

I’m coming up to my one year anniversary of PT sessions soon, working with Brad, making slow progress towards some pretty lofty goals in my personal training regime.  I’ve asked him to provide me some feedback on how he thinks I’m doing.  One of the things I’ve learned this year while on my leadership journey is to ask for feedback without taking it as criticism.  It is what it is.  Take it, use it, drop it, move on.  It is someone else’s opinion of the situation.  It can make a difference, or make no sense.  Whatever someone tells you, listen.

Something else I was looking at today – the website for the new MTV show, The Buried Life.  It looks like it’s going to be a pretty cool show.  Four guys ask the simple question: What do you want to do before you die?  So, in light of that, I started my “100 wishes” Wishlist…..

Here’s the first 20 or so…in no particular order (other than to number them):

  1. write an Oscar winning movie
  2. win the Nicholl Fellowship (Oscar award)
  3. do an Amazon adventure
  4. get married
  5. have children
  6. write a book
  7. own a property in Ireland and live there part time
  8. produce a leadership seminar
  9. go dog sledding
  10. visit Newfoundland
  11. take the train across Canada
  12. visit my sponsor child, Yennifer
  13. write full time
  14. create a clothing line
  15. become a personal trainer
  16. meet Stephen King
  17. shadow Bryan Murray
  18. live in an old house
  19. take my mom on a trip somewhere
  20. hang out in LA for a month
  21. take singing lessons
  22. take acting lessons
  23. volunteer overseas

So, what do you want to do before you die?

(p.s. I’m currently working on a screenplay adaptation of my friend rob mclennan’s novel – “white“….who knows where that will go!)

(p.s.s. A big hooray for my friend Kim who became a mom (to Delaney) for the first time today – one of the things on her list!)
