#36: Bucket list master and NYT #1 bestselling author Ben Nemtin joins Chris to discuss how to live a fulfilling life rather than a life dictated by the expectations of others. They talk about how to create a meaningful bucket that goes beyond just travel goals, what most people regret at the end of their lives, and how to make big goals less daunting by creating momentum.
Ben Nemtin is the author of NYT #1 bestseller What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? and the author of the brand new book The Bucket List Journal. He's also a creator of the hit MTV series The Buried Life, which documented a mission he and three childhood friends took to pursue the world’s greatest bucket list. He thought the trip would last two weeks - but ever since he hasn’t looked back.
“A bucket list is just a reminder of those things that are important to you” - Ben Nemtin
