I wouldn't say do anything illegal. But I would be like Walt and find something I love, and fucking do it well... That way when I die I can say I ran my race and I ran it good.

As I get older I am learning my only regrets in life are the things I didn't do...

I text message inspirational thoughts to my children each Sunday evening. This is one from August.

Live each day as if it is your last... And plan for tomorrow in case you were wrong! Hinselism 8/23/2015

And this is from a few weeks ago.

I think these little messages have done more to change me than them

Would you quit your job and start traveling the world or otherwise focus on your "bucket list"?

Bucket list for me (and my family), the biggest holdback would be not messing up the kids school.

Two years to live

I think we should not wait to be in a situation that we "know we only have two years to live" to make changes to our current situation. Why would you make those changes then and not now ?

1. Any day can be that day, knowing it or without knowing it.
2. Some changes could be inspired by unwinding a business, which is a different topic

But in a 'going' situation, one should live every day, not wait to introduce changes or postpone 'to live' until better times or until you find out that there is only limited time left....

So my answer is, ideally the changes should be limited to unwinding the situation, a managed 'shut down' or hand over.

Hi

I can see positive effects of fasting here and there

As to the question, I would do all those things I want to do but I don't using cheap excuses to talk myself out of doing them.

And I would focus on well known:

@chr1s, I think this is a good list, but if I were in this position, I think I would first want to give up my regrets.

In fact, I try to do that now....

I always try to picture myself in the future and get into that character thinking about the now moment as it was in the past - would I regret anything. But then I get into excuses and fear which unfortunately still dominates :/

All the best,
Chris

And thus why I created the thread... discussion is good, gets people thinking...

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
