Here’s another “how to” list by Thomas P. Hardy. I can’t list all 50 ways to live on your own terms [go here for article] but again many involve lifelong learning.
Do something every day that terrifies you (love this one)
Remove all non-essentials from your life (start with your closet)
Have no more than 3 items on your to-do list every day (I’m still at 6)
Listen to podcasts at 2x normal speed–you’ll learn faster
What do you think? Can you add others?
