50 Things I have learned in 50 years – Day 11

Over the next 50 days, I will be going over the 50 things that I have learned to make my life awesome. I know people are always doing these but so few of them have a PhD and 25+ years of experience working with human beings on what they want and changing the things they don’t like. Here is my list which will culminate on my 50th birthday.


I know you’re thinking, ‘What do you suggest for someone of advanced age?’ Which brings me to #11.

Start doing what’s on your bucket list…..I prefer a fuck it list.

Are you noticing a theme? A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die. The very thought of a list to do before you die sounds morbid and a little like a pre-emptive make-a-wish. Look, we know the end game here. Yes, we are willing to try the alien tech to live forever but for now, if I want to do something, I am going to do it. There is no guarantee of tomorrow so what’s with a bullshit list? Fuck it! Do it!

Come back for the next 39 days and see what else I have learned.
