What if you only had two years?
In the dream, he scaled back all of his goals to what could be done on that timeline and arranged everything to accomplish them in the time he had left. His wife and his friends helped him. It became a grand adventure that we were all part of.
All of the things that were limiting his dream had to be figured out. He had to make it happen within the constraints of current cash flow and with the talents of the people around him. There was suddenly no more waiting for additional funds, skillsets or for the market to change.
What would you do if you knew you had an expiration date in two years?
Could you accomplish something?
Would you have fun trying?
