(37) Seize the Day: Beyond a Bucket List

Updated: Apr 1, 2019

A young woman wanted to make a video, and because she believed in carpe diem (seize the day), she took a deep breath, picked up her camera and walked out the door.

And started a world-wide movement. Her name is Kalima Silverman, and the movement is Big Talk (as in skip

the small talk).

She approached all manner of strangers and asked if she could interview them. No one expected this question: What is the one thing you want to do before you die?

After some stumbling, the answers came out:

I’d take a road trip and tell him I love him.

I’d get on an airplane and go be with my son.

Reconcile with my father and say I love you.

The one thing you would want to do today (if tomorrow was your last) is the one thing that will most lift your life—right now:

*Lift a relationship (that has long been dragging on your life?).

*Or dive into a deeply personal desire that you have never gotten around to: art, dance, music, astronomy?

For a long time, Bronnie Ware worked with the dying. She compiled a list of their five most common regrets. One was: I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

And what is truer than raising your life to the next level? By releasing the negative drag of a relationship and/or fulfilling that deepest desire?


Those who decide to 'go for it' often find themselves stumbling into a daunting wall of cant’s and not right now’s.

If you find yourself facing a wall, know that pushing through can also lift the lives of those around you.

YOU Struggling Against YOU ?

As usual you do too much. And then later? Up too late with "just a few more minutes" of entertainment.

Delaying yet another meal? And then later. Eating/drinking what you know you will regret.

Being excited about a positive change. And then later. Resisting it (and sometimes quitting).
