What would you do?

Mark and I have been talking a lot about life changes and dreams for the future, and aptly enough, my table topics question at tonight’s Toastmasters meeting was about what I would try if I could do it fearlessly.  I think perhaps she was getting at the popular question, ‘what would you do if you knew you could not fail?’

Here are a few things I would love to do, given ample resources and guaranteed success:

  • Make people over.  Really I’d like to just endlessly style myself, but doing it for other people (with THEIR money) would be more practical and more rewarding.
  • Be a photographer for National Geographic.
  • Spend two months finding and documenting new insect species in an exotic location.
  • Photograph Earth from space.
  • Bike and backpack my way across every continent.  Well, Antarctica might be a very short visit, but I consider it a necessary evil in the name of completeness.

Okay, I lied -- what I'd really like to do is clone an army of moss monkeys and use them to take over the world.

So how about you?
