A palliative care nurse called Bronnie Ware made
a list of the biggest regrets of the dying.
(Her patients were those “who had gone home to die.” She
was with them the last 3-12 weeks of their lives.)
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to
myself, not the life others expected of me.
- I wish I didn’t work so hard (from every male patient).
- I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
- I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Here’s the link to this beautiful piece.
Hi Kim, The above “regrets” are exactly why I joined Send Out Cards. I can express my feelings to others. As a 78 year young (and I do feel young) I am having the time of my life. I heard of you through Jordon Adler’s weekly email. Your Heaps app is right on, a fantastic job of condensing most of what we need to know in one place. Thank you.
I want to educate as many people as possible about this great profession as I can. As a retired electronics engineer and teacher, I don;t work very hard, but I do not consider networking work! Through BNI and learning new ways to reach out to people my business is growing. I started networking many years ago, made a little money, but had a “ME” problem. Thats gone and I am moving on. Oh and the WOW factor in Send Out Cards… the customers ability to share some of themselves wit others.
Thank you for digging the net and sharing this golden nuggets.
Really encouraging, especially the first one,
For my humble opinion it is the KEY for all the others…
