Bonnie Ware is a palliative care nurse that sat with hundreds of people as they died. They all shared their biggest life regrets. Bonnie saw five broad themes emerge:
  1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
  2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard
  3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
  5. I wish that I had let myself be happier
I printed these out and kept them near my computer to see them daily. Bonnie explores these ideas further in her great Ted Talk.
