Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
I was doing some web surfing last night and stumbled upon this family’s plan for the next 6 + years. The Meretniemi family, a young couple and their 3 kids from Finland, are planning on circumnavigating the world on a sailboat for the next 75 months. They plan to visit 75 countries and their adventure is planned to start by mid 2016.
What I love about their plan is the spirit of adventure, thinking outside the box and really living life under their own terms. Shouldn’t we all look at life from a similar perspective where we actually follow our dreams? And from a business perspective, shouldn’t we all work every day towards accumulating the means that will permit us to fulfill our dreams and not just making it through retirement?
My hat is off to both these parents. Congratulations and Godspeed!
