If you knew you would live and healthy until you were 1,000 years old, what plans would you make for your life?
I would continue to spend lots of time with family and friends. I would spend more time at meditation and yoga. I would read a book a day, and walk for an hour a day.
I would spend a year learning how to DJ, and learn how to make excellent mashups. I would play in several bands, improving keyboards/bass/trumpet skills, and picking up a few more instruments as well. I would try to write a hit song, and I would also write an arrangement for a 15-piece jazz band (like I did at UMASS.) I would create a live music club.
I would live in several countries for a year each, and trying to get decent language skills in Haitian Creole, French, Spanish, and maybe Chinese as well.
I’m not sure what “bigger” plans I would make.
What would you do? And given this exercise, what if any plans would you make right now?
