Podcast #061 – #LaneHack – Frank Ostaseski – What the Dying Teach the Living

 

Those who find Simple Passive Cashflow seem have a common habit of delay gratification and Type-A personalities. We struggle to find balance from living today (YOLO) or living 50 to 100 years. Decisions and mindsets that are optimized for one end of the spectrum are a detriment to the goals of the other. Frank Ostaseski in his 1.5 hour talk “What the Dying Teach the Living” gives us great insights with his insights of working with those who are in the last leg of life. Personally, I have giving up on trying to be a normal engineer and learn things on my own when I can compress learning curves and learn from the experience of others.
1) Don’t Wait – What are you waiting on? Compress learning curves and get Real Estate coaching 😉
2) Welcome everything, push away nothing – we are free to be open?
3) Bring your whole self to the experience
4) Find a place of rest in the busy of things – don’t wait until you are less busy
5) Cultivate don’t know mind – your ego gets in the way of greatness, question everything.

Rich Cohen wrote that there are four rungs of being remembered after death: “newly dead; dead but remembered; dead and all those who knew you dead; dead and all those who knew those who knew you dead.” In terms of YOU…All that matters is what happens when you’re alive. Your legacy will offer you no pleasure after you’ve passed so live how you dream but know that there are some unconventional paths that you have to take (like buying cashflowing rentals not in your home state). And for myself…fame will do you no favors for me once I die but at least people can use SimplePassiveCashflow.com to get out of the rat race. And if that does not get your going listen to the wisdom of Frank Ostaseski. […]
