  1. What is the message of the talk?
  2. Do you feel you often waste your time on things that don’t matter?
  3. Do you feel you appreciate all the little moments of joy we have every day?
  4. Do you have a bucket list?
  5. Do you agree that quality beats quantity when it comes to experiences?
  6. Is the idea of having a bucket list overrated?
  7. Would you like to change your life so as to have fewer regrets in the future?



to brace = to prepare somebody/yourself for something difficult or unpleasant that is going to happen

He says, «Brace for impact.»

a bucket list = A list of things to do before you die

We have this bucket list, we have these things we want to do in life, and I thought about all the people I wanted to reach out to that I didn’t, all the fences I wanted to mend, all the experiences I wanted to have and I never did.

to eliminate = to remove or get rid of something/somebody

And after, as I reflected on that, I decided to eliminate negative energy from my life.

to frame = to express something in a particular way

And that sadness really framed in one thought, which is, I only wish for one thing.
You’ll have to be careful how you frame the question.

to bawl = to cry loudly, especially in an unpleasant and annoying way

And I’m bawling, I’m crying, like a little kid.
