the inventor side of you is from your dad and this this kind of speaker and and Inspire or that you are is from your mom who was in academics. How important is legacy to you. I've heard you real off some things on this call that blew my mind right? Like I didn't even know some of the things you've done in your close friend, and I'm sure there's a myriad of more accomplishment how important Legacy for you in this kind of relationship with time because the reason I ask is part of my 30s and 20s that you reference. I realize now I didn't really know (expletive). I really believed in rainbows men. You know, I really did like I really thought there was something else and then so many things have happened in our world the last few years and I've gotten older where I start looking at things and go (expletive) that didn't mean anything right none of that meant anything so then you have to To take an inventory start to say well, you know what? I'm gonna take advantage of my time here and what am I leaving behind? Like what is important when I when I'm when I'm no longer here obviously relationships, like you said 70% of these successful men said They wish they spent more time with their children. So obviously relationship strong family relationships that will go on and people will talk about the love that this family had think we all can do that money or no money, then you start Thinking about what your accomplishments are, right you have so many and there's so many more in front of you. I mean, have you climbed Mount Everest? Not
the actual Mountain. Yeah, I
mean it's crazy know most people hang up if you ask a question like that. So what is legacy to you? You
know, I don't really think of it in terms of Legacy. I think more in terms of regrets and there's three kinds of regrets. So the first kind of regret is the regret that you can fix. So I have a bad relationship with my dad. Let's just say I can call them up and I can fix that right? So I regret that but you can fix it. The other kind of regret is a regret that you can't fix like I broke up with my girlfriend in high school. I wish I didn't do we can't fix that. You can't go back. She's married. You're married like it just it's a regret you're gonna have Live
and the Third Kind of regrets are regrets that you can prevent. So let's just say for example, I always wanted to climb Mount Everest as you just said, you know, well if you know that and you know that if you don't do it when you're 70, you're going to look back and be like (expletive), I wish I did it. Well, you can prevent it Go and climb it, you know, so the way I look at Legacy is I look at it more in that third bucket of regret where what are the things that when my time is called I want to look back and be like man. I wish I did this differently or I wish I would have done this while I was still healthy enough to do it or able and capable enough to do it. So I really try to focus on you know, what do I love to do? Who do I love to do it with and how do I put more of that on my plate? So that's sort of how I'm going into the future specifically as it relates to Legacy.
