Today we’re talking to Sebastian Terry, the founder of “100 Things” and “Kindsum”. Sebastian is inspiring people all over the world to give themselves the permission to define how they want to live their lives. . Sebastian first created a bucket list of 100 things after losing a dear friend at a young age. He reevaluated the way he was living his life and whether he was truly happy..
Sebastian’s priorities shifted and he dedicated his time to his list. A list that lit him up and helped him to get to know himself better, to know what truly made him happy. .Once the world caught on to Sebastian’s magnetic adventure, he started to ask others, #WhatsOnYourList? His book, TV series, and talks around the world are inspiring people to shake off what people think they should do, and follow what makes them truly happy.
He’s also launching a new project designed to bring more happiness into the world, Kindsum, which you can think of as a TaskRabbit for kindness. He’s so incredibly genuine and fun, and we’re so grateful for the opportunity to share his story, his mission, and his big heart.
And if you want to talk about what’s on your list and how #ALMOST30NATION can add more kindness to the world, head over to Facebook and join our Secret Facebook Group.
