15 Minutes to Live

Just kidding! I don’t really have 15 more minutes to live. If I did I wouldn’t be writing on this blog for it. Makes me think why I’m writing on here in the first place…The prompt is from #Trust30. You pledge for the next 30 days to do blog, journal or create something each day over the next 30 days. Each day ┬áthere is a prompt from an original thinker or doer. Each day you get the prompt in your email and you do your thing. Tweet it, talk about it, spread it around.It’s all about doing your thing your way. Just as Ralph Waldo Emerson would have wanted it.Back to the 15 minutes to live. You set a timer for 15 minutes and you write the story that has to be written.I started blankly at this one for a few minutes and then I had it. What would I do with 15 minutes left, 1 year left or any finite amount of time left?Gather friends and family and head outside. That’s all. I don’t need any fancy crap or a big house or expensive toys (those are all fun, don’t get me wrong). But when it comes down to it, if I’m outside with friends and family, I’m happy. That’s all I really need. Once it starts pouring rain, I’d be happy to have an Arc’teryx Gore-tex suit though!If it went past those 30 minutes, I’d tuck into my life list and get those going. I’ve already done a couple this year and a couple are in the works for the next few months. Get’r done!Think about the things you’d do if you only had 1 year left. What is most important to you that you’d have to get it done? Where would you go, what would you do and who would you see?This is going to make you uncomfortable and you’re not allowed to read on until you answer it. Why aren’t you doing those things now?Time is running out.
