Your Last Project

You’ve heard the exercise: “If you only had 1 week left to live, how would you spend it?”

I’ve always found that an instructive thought experiment – and also a little vague.

Here’s a refinement: what if you only had 1 project left to work on?

  • Which project would you choose?
  • How would you go about it?
  • What would be your criteria for success?

My guess is: the answers to these questions will be different than the way you’ve been approaching your projects up until now.

My question is: will that continue to be the case?

What if you approached every project (business, personal, or any other category) as if it were your last?

  • Wonderful thoughts! If I had one week to live, I’d spend it with my family. Also I might do a lot of video so that my family and fans can remember me.
