60 Mindful Minutes

Nov 24, 2017

John P. Strelecky is on a mission to inspire people to think about and start pursuing their Big Five for Life: the five things they want to see, do or experience in their lifetime that would truly define their life as well-lived.

And while he’s living his Big Five every day, he’ll be the first to admit that setting out on a new path, especially one that looks very different from the one you are already one, isn’t easy.

In this conversation John defines the Big Five for Life concept and what it means to think about the museum of your life. We also talk about purpose and the impact fulfilling your goals has on other people.

And of course, he tells us how people start to change or shift when they start to orient themselves towards their purpose and towards their Big Five for Life.


Key Takeaways

  • We don’t have to wait until a tragedy or health crisis happens to take stock of our life and start living our dreams.
  • We make such a positive impact on the people in our lives when we start pursuing our Big Five for Life.
