Did you know that 76% of deathbed regrets come down to one thing: living life according to someone else’s vision.
We’re often pressured to pursue dreams that aren’t actually ours. The expectation to become a lawyer, doctor, to follow in the family’s business—or a number of other things—can take us on a path purely focused on making other people happier than ourselves.
In this mini-episode, I speak with Ben Nemtin and Chase Jarvis about how to live a life without regrets, and how we can design our lives to fulfill our own dreams through the power of creativity, without getting stuck in the rut of only pleasing the people we love.
Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? and a star of MTV’s highest rated show ever on iTunes and Amazon called The Buried Life. As the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, Ben’s message of radical possibility has been featured on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, FOX, and NBC News. President Obama called Ben and The Buried Life “inspiration for a new generation” and Oprah declared their mission “truly inspiring.”
Chase Jarvis is an award-winning artist, entrepreneur, and one of the most influential photographers of the past decade. He has created campaigns for Apple, Nike, Red Bull and others, was a contributor to the Pulitzer-winning New York Times story Snowfall, and earned an Emmy nomination for his documentary Portrait of a City. He also created Best Camera–the first photo app to share images to social networks, and is the Founder of CreativeLive, where more than 10 million students learn photography, video, design, music, and business from the world’s top creators and entrepreneurs.
