When you’re on your deathbed, what do you need to have experienced in order to feel you’ve lived a good and fulfilling life?

This kind of reverse-time thinking is my favourite kind. I’ve taken some daring chances because I looked ahead, wanting to be able to say someday that I had done that thing. My whole career is based on decisions I made this way, actually.

Man, I love what Lauren has to say about pretty much everything. Read her whole post about examining priorities; it’s worth every moment you spend with it: The One Question You Must Ask (or, The World’s Shortest Bucket List).
