A few thoughts on what I would do if I knew this was my last year…and should maybe do anyway!
It’s not often that one change will positively affect your life on multiple levels.
After a two week trial run of Netflix on Friday evenings only, multiple books have already been read, productivity has been heightened, evening snacks eliminated, flab diminished and sleep improved. We are now Netflix free.
Even if we rent a movie online once a week, which will cost twice as much each month as Netflix did, we will each have ~50 hours in that same month to allocate elsewhere. So we’re trading ten or twenty dollars for an extra hundred hours.
There’s an old(er) guy at the coffee shop with whom I often indulge in solve-the-world’s-problems bull sessions.
He knows a lot about a lot of things, but as with any far-ranging morning chat with the boys, topics always come up that some or all of us know nothing about.
Most of us just bluff and offer our comments based on something we think we mighta heard somewhere.
The old guy often says “I really don’t know” and sits silently while we keep spouting off and pooling our ignorance.
But when he speaks, we all listen.
I consider him one of the wisest people I know.
