Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine the end-of-life experience?

Designed for people who are on a career break, an age crisis, making the most of their final years, looking to connect with people outside their comfort zone, searching for meaning, and seizing a second chance at life.
  • Inspired by the 3 Most Important Questions goal-setting exercise by Vishen Lakhiani, the author of The Code of the Extraordinary Mind.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Conduct a small social survey to match friends and network acquaintances based on their dream experience.

Survey specialists, social media strategists, marketers, developers and digital content producers.

I think this can be a great idea, its like the movie bucketlist.  Often people feel more apt to do something when there are others willing to be there with them.  This can help people get out of their comfort zone, and make some new and interesting connections.  

I wonder if there is also a way to bring the bucket-list to the people they love so that they can spend time with them.

I also wonder if this can help people with estranged relationships find ways to reconnect to the people they miss.

I agree, Michael. I think this idea has interesting potential.

I see it as Pinterest (posting aspirational items/experiences that then might lead to action) with a twist. The twist comes into play through the platform encouraging users to connect with fellow community members to execute their shared wish/goal/bucket-list item together. Maybe, once the bucket-list item is completed, each person could publish a journal entry or photo album to the platform about their experience. 

This bucket-list idea would be a great way to encourage individuals to reduce regrets as they age and take advantage of the time they have.
