Rank #6: TLB 004 - Die Empty by Todd Henry

Podcast cover
Read more

What do you want to accomplish before you die? Is that a question that we choose to ignore? I know I did for a long time. I guess I thought if I didn’t etch the answer in stone, I’d never die. I know… that logic sux doesn’t it?

I guess the point is that we only have so many days on this ole planet, only so much time to accomplish life and we get to choose how we want to spend this one life we have.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to come to the end with regrets.

Die Empty, by Todd Henry is a great reminder that we should strive to, as the sub title says, “unleash your best work everyday”.
