#47: Dr. BJ Miller - Why Living a Life Of Regret Is Worse Than Death

Hey hey!

Welcome back my Freedom Pact family.
Today on the show, we are joined by Dr Bruce Miller @bjmillermd commonly known as BJ Miller.

I first stumbled upon BJ many years back through his Ted talk which has been viewed more than 5 million times on YouTube.

BJ is a hospice and palliative care physician at the UCSF Medical centre. Dr Miller previously worked as the executive director for the zen hospice project in which he treats hospitalised patients with terminal or life-altering illnesses.

BJ has been featured in many major publications. He’s appeared on Oprah’s super soul Sunday, the New York Times and he’s just releases a book alongside Shoshana Berger called the Beginners guide to the end, which one imagines will go on to be a best seller.

So by this point, you may be thinking what does this have to do with our brand? Like we’re a peak performance podcast? Well, I think this is a hugely important topic to cover. BJ has overseen the deaths of thousands of people, so there’s no other better person to tell us what really matters in life.

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about life and death. We’re going to discuss what really matters in life, what the biggest regrets are that people have at the end, and also how to live a life so you don’t mind when your time comes.

I think this could be one of the most important and captivating pieces of content we’ve produced, and I highly recommend you listen to the full thing.
