Feature Friday: Top 5 Regrets of the Dying

Today I’m featuring an article a few friends posted on Facebook, dealing with many of the self-styled life’s recurring themes: taking risks, living out our dreams, etc.

The article is written by Bronnie Ware, who’d worked in palliative care for a number of years. In that time, she realized that many of her patients echoed similar regrets about their lives as they faced the end. Like the ideas in a Steve Jobs speech I’ve referenced before, the sentiments of the palliative patients reflect the clarity that comes from facing death. Though I think many of us would agree that we know we should be living with this attitude, it’s still inspiring to hear the encouragement from another perspective.

Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware on her blog, Inspiration and Chai. She has also turned the thoughts from this particular article into a book that you can find on her site!

Happy Friday!

  2. Do not start trading until you have a good understanding of how the stock market functions.
    Take a few weeks to read about trading, join a seminar or
    take a class to learn how to invest your money smartly and manage
    your stocks like a professional. Think of your education as an
    investment.

  3. When starting out in the stock market, your best bet is to invest in a few high
    quality and popular stocks. You don’t need to include 20 or 30 different stocks in your portfolio. Rather, start to get a feel of how the market works by only selecting a few promising options at one time.
