It's time for you. Can't just stops. Big Ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and dreams. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. If I only had six months to live, what would become my number one priority? I think quite a few episodes ago we had the if I only had a week to live question or a day to live or something, and here I am back with the six months to live question. And so what gives you know, hey, you're repeating questions. No, no, I think this is a very different question than if I only had a week to live. Six months is kind of that. Six months feels like...

...a long time, but yet it's not a long time. And so if somebody told me, you know, many times things are coming up that are going to happen in six months, and to me that feels like, you know, that feels way far away and I don't worry about it a whole lot. So if I only had six months to live, maybe I would look at that and think like wow, that's a long time. I've guess. If no, I probably wouldn't think that, but I would think like hey, I have time. Maybe that's what I would think. Hey, I have time. I don't need to do all of this right at once. I can do these things. So this this kind of gets to the lower priority things, but still quite a high priority. Right. If I only have a week to live, that's just the ultimate high priority things. That really helps you focus in on those. But six months, HMM, that feels like some time right, like I can sit back and maybe get to some of the things that are not super high priority but are still very...

...important to me and help me filter through some of those. And why do I care about any of this? Well, will probably because we're not doing it right. If you told me I had six months to live, suddenly I'm going to get a little more focused and I'm going to get zeroed in on what's important and I'm probably, quite honestly, just Gott I'm going to stop doing this podcast right that's not at the top of my list if I have six months to live. So what is? I probably need to be spending more time with family, out in nature, you know, traveling, things like that. You know that probably makes my six month list, but not my one month list. You know I'm going to want to travel somewhere, see something, do something, as opposed to just sitting around talking to people, just sitting around. I kind of downplay that, but yeah, I have other things that I'm going to want to get to first before that... month deadline, and that's what this question is about. What are those things that are important to you, but not ultimately important, but that you really want to add into your life? See You tomorrow.
