Personal Development Series: Sebastian Terry

Known worldwide for pursuing an incredible list of 100 Things that he wants to achieve before he dies, Sebastian Terry’s story is surprisingly not about a bucket list. It’s about something more far reaching: permission, choice, growth and connection.

Affected by a curious mind and the death of a close friend, Sebastian experienced a life-changing moment when he asked himself a simple question: “Am I happy?” The answer was “NO“ and so he decided to pen a list of 100 things that he’d always wanted to achieve.

Following his heart and armed with nothing but a list, Sebastian’s incredible story has grown from an entertaining tale of adventure into a global philanthropic movement that engages a growing tribe to not just set meaningful goals, but pull the trigger and achieve them — all whilst helping others do the same.
