If You Could Do Anything

If you could do anything (humanly possible) right now, with an unlimited budget, what would you be doing? And why that?

What is your ultimate goal in life, your endgame. What do you hope to achieve before you die?

You could die today or tomorrow, but let's assume you've got another 10 plus years to live at least.

Is there something you want to share Reaper..?

I don't know what my ultimate goal is, there are too many possibilities and nothing really stands out. Right now I'd choose to disappear and start life over in another country, I imagine that's quite expensive nowadays if it's even possible at all, because I feel like anywhere whatever I do everything always comes down to stuff that happened in the past and it's holding me back.

I'v never really planned to do anything in advance, but I end up doing what I've always wanted to do in the end; sometimes the route to get there is hard to define.

I've mentioned this recently, but visualisation is probably the one mental exercise that I trust the most, and it's proved its use over the years. I find planning and sticking to a plan almost impossible, and this serves as a good "passive" planning alternative.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

Nope. Just being realistic. Any of us could potentially die at any time. I'd like to think I have at least another 30 years of life left.

No matter how far you go, you can never run away from yourself.

As for me, if I had an unlimited budget I'd move to somewhere with a nicer climate, buy a nice house in the country and a big apartment in the city so I can circulate between the two when desired. I'd also like to travel the world, meet new people and experience different cultures. There's so much to learn and do and I want to do it all before I hit my expiry date.

No but you can surround yourself with people, things, places that bring out a different side of you without getting constantly reminded of the kind of person you could but don't want to be.

I don’t really know, to be honest. I’d probably like to travel but it’s not a huge motivation for me. If I did I’d like to go to a Caribbean island for awhile surround myself with plenty of women, alcohol, and some good drugs. That’s honestly what I would probably do. I’d like to say travel Europe drink fancy coffee with my pinky in the air, and see historical places but that’s probably a lie. I don’t think I’d do that if it came to it

Id probably drive up north and go mushroom hunting and fishing. Id get very bored very fast if I had a disposable income.

Not humanly possible but if I could have one wish granted it would be to make the weakest currency the strongest currency suddenly. Just to see what kind of effect it churns out.

I stopped thinking about ultimate goals when I was in my early twenties, going around trying to achieve X, Y or Z as if it would make my life massively different. These days I just focus on being good at whatever I’m up to at the moment and doing the things I enjoy.

Money I have, it’s health that’s in short supply. I’m planning to go cave diving once I’ve recovered enough.

Tbh I don’t think money would change my lifestyle much, it’s possible to do most things on a budget in fact it’s often more fun.

If I had unlimited budget, I make myself bulletproof to any law. Realistically money =/= power but it's the closest thing to buying your way in I guess.

Will probably pour $$$ on nerds to come up with synthetic body parts to replace the bits I carelessly broke over the years.

I'd love to live long enough to see interstellar travel. Imagine just cruising in some space bubble sipping on an old fashioned while watching an accretion disc of a blackhole.

I'd pour more $$$ on research into maximizing TIME. Short of a cure for aging, I'd want something to help body recovery quicker and minimize time spent doing anything that doesn't interest me.

I don't want to never die but I'd want to never age. If I go, I'd want it to be an accident or just coz I pushed it too far.

I don't really fantasize about it too much as any visceral experience trumps any imagination no matter how conceptually interesting.
