Do you dream of leading a different kind of life?

years ago, I was roughly 60 seconds from being hit by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel


Do you dream of leading a different kind of life? Most of us do, at one point or another in our lives.

The minute you begin to do what you really want to do, it’s really a different kind of life. – Buckminster Fuller

So there we have it. To lead a different kind of life, we just need to do it. If it were only that easy.

Note: Out for a run, a one-minute difference saved me from being hit from behind. A few years after, I began an LLC.

  1. Jeff, you were one minute in front of this guy? How insane! And I believe, beyond any doubt, that stuff like this happens to us EVERY day but we won’t know about it ’til the “end of the story”.

  2. Tell me about it Natalie. What I didn’t share (to keep it shorter), is that I crossed this place four minutes before and hit the half way point in the run and was following the same rput back. So in reality I missed it twice, 60 seconds and 4 minutes. Doubly blessed.
