We should always start with the end in mind. Figure out the end goal and work our way backwards. But what is the end goal of life? I believe life is a question, how we live it is our answer. To find out how we should live life, we can learn a lot from the people who’ve already lived it. There’s a saying that goes, “Every man dies but how many men truly live”. Someone in the world can live a meaningful life. What will you do to make your life more meaningful? For when I die, many will think well of you.

Bonnie Ware wrote a book called “Regrets of the Dying”. She was in palliative care, meaning she took care of people who went home to die. If you do not have time to read the book, at least read this summary. When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five. Firstly, every man dies but how many men truly live shirt, I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
Live a life true to myself
This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it. Every man dies but how many men truly live shirt, remember it.
I wish I hadn’t worked so hard
This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence. By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle.
