You have probably heard of the term “near death experience.” This is when you almost die and see your life flash before your eyes. Well, a “near LIFE experience” is a little different. This is when you look back on your life and realize that you always played it safe and didn’t take any chances in life.
If you do a quick search on “biggest regrets,” you will find a many Top 10-style lists. Very rarely will you see a failure on the list of top regrets. Usually, it’s more about what a person didn’t do than things they actually did. Fear of failure stops most people from taking risks; but ultimately, not taking risks can lead to major regrets that you will carry for the rest of your life.
I’m not suggesting that you throw caution to the wind and live recklessly. What I do suggest is learning to evaluate risk instead of just brushing it off. Ask yourself, “What’s the worst that could happen?” and also, “What’s the BEST that can happen?” Usually, the worst is something you can overcome or learn from and the best could change your life for the better.
Don’t end up looking back on your life and realizing that you never really lived. Take some risks and live a little!

Get a glimpse of the future of real estate marketing. 3D technology and smart phones now make it possible for potential buyers to take a virtual tour of a property without having to step foot on site. While this technology isn’t yet mainstream, it’s pretty to cool to observe. If given the opportunity, I wouldn’t mind taking a virtual tour of some million dollar beach house in Hawaii!!
The future seems to be a hot subject these days. Maybe it’s all the Sci-Fi movies coming out. So, while we’re on the subject… Check out the futuristic designs of these solar-powered modular houses that will compete at the Solar Decathalon, which will be held out by DIA in October.
