What do you want to do before you die?

Forget what seems possible or impossible. What’s the craziest thing you want to do before you die?

Shoot hoops with Obama?

Crash a party at the Playboy Mansion?

Be on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine?

Throw the first pitch at a MLB game?

Go to space?

Ridiculous right?

Wrong.

the ultimate goal

Just talk to the guys from The Buried Life, 4 guys who started with a 100 crazy bucket list goals and a 2 week road trip to cross a couple items off. That turned into a 5 year (and counting) “movement” of doing unbelievable things, starring in their own TV show, and most recently publishing a #1 NY Times Best-seller, both of which are items on the list. They were also just featured in an article on Tim Ferriss’s blog giving some awesome goal setting advice, so I thought I’d share.

Goal Setting Advice from a guy who has accomplished some crazy goals:

1. Stop and think about it. Really think about it.

-What do you really want to do? Think beyond what is expected of you, think of what is important to you.

2. Write it down.

-Dreams have a funny way of staying dreams, but when you write them down, they become more of a project, something that is real.

3. Talk about it.

-Tell as many people as you know, passionately. You never know who’s listening that might help out.

4. Be persistent.

-No just means be more creative, be different.

5. Be ballsy.

-This is my favorite one. Go after your craziest dreams and goals, and until you reach them, never give up.

6. Help others.

-What happened to the guys from the Buried Life happened because they had pure intentions.
