15 Things A Guy Should Do While Alive

January 16, 2016
There are over a thousand things to do in a lifetime really. But there are some really important things you should do no matter where you live. We made a list to make it easy for you.

1. Spend money on that outfit you so much want

We know you have a “perfect outfit” idea in your head. From the shoes, pants to the shirt, blazer or suit, wrist watch, hat etc. Make sure you definitely buy that whole outfit while you are alive. Don’t be only well dressed in the coffin.

2. Skip work to go skydiving

These two go together so perfectly. It is going to be a day of thrills. Skipping work, and being over three thousand feet in the air. The adrenaline is second to none!

3. Go to a gun range

As a kid you surely did gunshot motions with your bare hands, right? Don’t let it stop there. Go to an actual gun range and fire some rounds, then frame your target sheet. Perfect!

4. Try to meet your hero/role model

You sure do have to meet someone you have always tried to emulate or be like. Make moves to meet them, trust us this is going to be amazing, well except your role model is dead.

5. Get married

Oh yes we went there! Get married settle down with someone you really love and be merry, have kids and be examples for other couples. We purposely did not put this at the end because: Life does not end after marriage.

6. Come up with an idea that is unconventional

Be brilliant. Your brain is a power tool and using it is really encouraged. You may not be an Einstein but come up with an idea you can call your own and flourish.

7. Open the door for a lady repeatedly

You know how it is said that “real men open doors for ladies”? Yeah, you should do that repeatedly you’d earn that badge of honor for opening doors.

8. Give someone an expensive and needed gift

This is hard sometimes, but a well thought out gift that is usually not averagely priced will be super appreciated. You sure want to be that person that “was the suerhero”, at least once in a lifetime. Don’t go broke sha.

9. Make a million

This is a life goal. Make a million whatever currency it is in. You have to do this in a lifetime or even move it up to the next level…billion.

10. Get ripped and fit for the fun of it

Its really good to stay healthy. And you know what else? Getting ripped! You have to do this also, it takes time but you know in your head you had/have them packs.

11. Do a photoshoot or be in one

Before you die you have to be photographed professionally. You know this, we all know this. (You need nice pictures to be in your burial program booklet when you die).

12. Get a memorable award

Nothing as good as being honored with an award for an achievement. It is really fulfilling. Make sure you do something that is worth being mentioned or being awarded. Even if it is “employee of the month”.

13. Do something sexually fun/memorable with your partner

Well this one does not need a lot of explaining *winks*

14. Car race

At a point in a man’s life, he must race – Martin Luther King Jr. You see you have to tick this pr put this n your bucket lists definitely. It is an amazing experience! Well go karting is also racing.

15. Earn money doing what you love

THis is probably the ultimate. You don’t want to be stuck in a job or career you despise. Get out and pursue/do what you love. NB: It is never too late.
