I Want To Drop Dead After Working 18 Hours Or After The Daytona 500…

I was listening to one of these Joe Rogan podcasts recently and he was talking about how great Mick Jagger still looks.

Mick Jagger is way into his 70’s and still dances on stage for over 2 hours at each of his shows.

And the person he was interviewing, Jeff Garlin, was talking about how he plans on working until the end.

Basically, it was agreed that if you stop working and pursuing your goals, you are gonna die. And die early.

Or if you don’t die early, you are going to spend the last decade or two of your life just waiting to die.

And that is unnecessary.

80 is the new 70 and eventually, 90 should be the new 70.

This past week I did my first track and field race in over 20 years.

I am going to post about it in a week or two with some videos, but basically, I realized that this is the way I need to train for the rest of my life.

Heavy lifting, fast running and challenging myself.

I need to compete, I need to push myself and I need to work hard.

If you have 2 more years of life left, you still should have a decent amount of energy.

Why retire?

Why do you watch so much TV?

Go out there and live.

I also need to travel more.  I just “started” to travel a lot for the last several years, but now that I have a one-year old son, that has slowed down temporarily.

I’ve also decided how I want to die.

Either after a hard 18 hour work-day where I attend 3 meetings, sign up some new clients and hit the gym at lunch.

Or, I want to drop dead at the Daytona 500.

The Daytona 500 has always been on my bucket list, so why not die there at age 80?

Rip my shirt off in the stands, down a giant beer and have a violent heart attack in front of 125,000 people.

Sure beats a nursing home.
