carried by the wind

If I have 100 million tomorrow…

If I woke up tomorrow with 100 million pesos in my bank account, here’s how I would live my life.

By five in the morning, I will rise from bed. I will brush my teeth and drink a glass of water. Then, I will go to my study room to meditate in silence. This 30-minute silence is my me-time.

By six in the morning, I will jog around the village for 45 minutes. If I get to jog with my family, then this would be a joy. If alone, I am sure my brain will get working. Jogging stimulates my creativity.

Then, I will eat breakfast with my family. We don’t have breakfast together, but I love it when we eat together in the morning. The family that eats together stays healthy. I know there is no rhyme there, but I am sure you see the reason.

I will spend my next hour in the garden. Planting is a celebration of a good life. Not everyone does it, and rich people don’t get the rare opportunities to get wisdom from planting. Planting is a reflective experience. I get to examine the life I have and my relationship with people.

My working time is from 10 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon. Four hours of focused work are all I need to stay productive. I continue to deliver speeches, train leaders, and coach executives. I send letters to my 1000 true fans, my tribe.

Then I rest for an hour before I water my plants.

Until 8:30 in the evening, I can spend my day dining out with family and friends, joining an association meeting (maybe once a month), playtime with my family, Netflixing, reading books, journaling, and a mishmash of other things.

From 9 pm to 10.30 pm, I will write books, articles, or action research. Then, when there is nothing more to do, I will sleep. Six hours of sleep is enough for me.

I don’t see myself spending time on Facebook. If I can make 60 productive minutes for every hour, then that’s how I will live my days.

Coming up with a five-year goal is easy. Put some words and numbers together, and we have something to look forward to. One can also dream of big things, just like I have encouraged most of my readers to dream bigger dreams. But I realized that the five-year goal and the big dream are abstract concepts.

If my goal is to have 100 million in my bank account, how would I live my life once realized? I read somewhere that the lives of many lotto winners were thrown off balance because they’re not used to super big wallets. I thought that it might be because they did not know how to live their daily lives.

If I have 100 million pesos tomorrow, this is how I want to live my day.

I want this life, for I don’t need 100 million pesos to live it.
