064: Top Regrets

Season Two Mar 15, 2021

I recently stumbled upon some research exploring the common regrets of the dying.

(Here's more, if you're interested.)


The findings suggest that we should:

  • Be much kinder to ourselves
  • Worry less about judgment from others
  • Express our feelings openly and more often
  • Connect deeply with friends and loved ones
  • Work way less than we do

How might we design a world where these qualities are encouraged, rewarded, and accessible to far more people?
