I have always liked working back from a deadline. I get more done that way. Instead of planning out 119 days, let's imagine we're already there and take a look back.
If you only had 119 days left to live your life, what would be the most important thing you would want to accomplish?
119 days is basically 4 months. 1/3 of a year. A drop in the bucket of life. Would you set yet another weight loss goal and spend the rest of the year contemplating your naval?
Or would you go for connections instead? Moments of majesty, grace, beauty?
What would you want to be known for? Remembered for?
There are 119 days left in the year. What will you do with that?
