There’s a book I’ve read and love by John Izzo called The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die - not to be confused with the book, The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware.
John started by asking 15,000 people across the US and Canada to send him their recommendations on who they felt were the “wise elders” in their life - people who had something important to teach us.
