Wake up with the sun.
Go out with the night.
This is time meant to explore.
The chemistry between who you are, and who you want to be.
Watch yourself tango with the possibilities.
Leave the banal, and become scholars of the great night.
Pick up maps that change your life.
Learn to say YES, and learn to say No.
Let the unscheduled determine the plan, and the plan be undetermined.
It’s okay to not know what you want, every now and then.
Take risks that you can laugh at later, or enjoy for the rest of your life.
Make last moment decisions, and friends who are crazier than you.
Fall in love with whom you are, and with where you are going.
Life is not a profit or loss statement.
Put your life in a backpack, and make that backpack your life.
Be the perfect tourist. Never settle down.
A year in the Himalayas, six months in the Amazon
Write a book that changes someone’s life.
Invest in people. Invest in experiences.
Read your favorite book thirty seven times?
What’s stopping you?
Learn the art of non-conformity.
We are storytellers. That’s all there is to us.
Be a good one, while you’re at it.
Climb the highest mountain, trench the unchartered waters.
Build a fancy palate.
Jump out of an airplane, if that is your thing.
Attend a concert.
Experience snow, warmth and rain.
Make the whole world your home.
Keep moving, keep evolving.
Don’t merely survive. Live!
A hundred thousand frequent flyer miles.
A hundred thousand new experiences.
The world has more to offer than you think it does.
You have less time than you think you do.
Because this is your life, and the road to your grave is not a straight path.
