Phil Keoghan and "No Opportunity Wasted"
After a near-death experience, Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan decided to live every day as if it were his last. His motto became "Do it all before you die," and this became the inspiration for his book, N.O.W.: No Opportunity Wasted, and his show by the same name.

Each week on No Opportunity Wasted, one person is given just three days and $3,000 to make their biggest dream a reality. Phil says it's incredible what people can accomplish. "Most people's big excuses are they don't have enough time and they don't have enough money," he says. "We wanted to show people that it really isn't about that at all. We take away all excuses by making sure that their cat's looked after and there are no problems [with their bosses]. The slogan of the show, or the catch of the show, is that imagination is your currency.

"The whole point of No Opportunity Wasted is to get people inspired, to get them to think, 'What do I have and what can I do?'" Phil says. "If you don't know what you want out of life, then how can you possibly go and live the biggest possible life that you can?"

Are you living the life of your dreams? If you were to take your last breath at 3 p.m. tomorrow, what would you regret not doing?
