A few weeks ago I came across an article on LinkedIn that challenged to reader to think about what’s really important to them. Try it for yourself and see whether your current “priorities” match your dreams.

If I had one week left to live:
I would smoke like a chimney, drink like a fish, eat fast food at every meal, and prank call ex-boyfriends. Why deprive myself if I’ll be dead in a week? Oh and say goodbye to the few people who really matter to me.

The seven deadly sins aren’t much fun when you have more time on your hands so I allowed myself more leeway to do the things I really love to do and wouldn’t make my impending death come faster….

If I had a month left to live:
I’d get in a few more good taekwondo and yoga classes, get my affairs in order, and spend time with the few people who really matter to me. 

If I had a year left to live:
As many taekwondo and yoga classes as possible, trips to places in the U.S. I’ve always wanted to visit (Santa Fe, Hawaii, Miami, Napa Valley), check out all the hole in the wall restaurants in my city, drink really good wine, spend time with the few people who really matter to me.

If I had 5 years left to live:
Advance in my black belt studies, get yoga teacher certification, learn Italian or Portuguese, write a book, travel to South America and Europe. Spend time with the few people who really matter to me. Drink really good wine in every country.

If I had a life left to live:
Ahhh here’s the kicker. I’m still figuring this one out. Time for another good taekwondo class…
