The other piece is that I've see too many names I know in the obituaries, reminding me that life is short.
I have two criteria which should be satisfied in the next year - one involving frequent flyer miles and one involving how long I've been working at my company. I need to get somewhat more organized about the financial picture.
What I'm not worried about is how to fill my time. Things I have been googling in my spare time at work include the Florida Trail (kind of a shakedown for the Appalachian Trail) and the Camino del Santiago.
