12.21.12 Apocalypse: 11 Months to Live

2012 Mayan Prediction

December 21 is the day we all die. According to various interpretations of the ancient Mayan calendar, the day we all perish will be just about the time we start stressing about what well be giving Uncle Bob and Aunt Clara for Christmas.

Never mind that weve had 40 such predictions since 2000; this one is etched in stone dating back centuries and has more than its share of true believers:

  • Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation Into Civilization's End by Lawrence Joseph
  • 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck 
  • The Revolution of 2012: Vol. 1, The Preparation by Andrew Smith 

Now that you know, it might be a great time to plan out a real New Years Resolution for the final year of your life. Have you fulfilled your childhood dreams? Did that one thing you always wanted to do, get done? Did you form a relationship with that one person you always wanted to meet?

When you're lying atop the rubble that use to be your office desk, will your dying breath be, "Gee, I wish I had _________________. (fill in the blank)"

Might you be having trouble figuring out how to figure out what to do with the final year of your life? That's a common problem since were so caught up in the immediate needs of our daily lives. If we've lost our compass to navigate to what truly matters, you might start with this:

While you've known our program as entrepreneurship training, we define entrepreneurship as a sustainable, satisfying lifestyle and one that goes beyond building a successful business. And a successful business isn't just about being profitable, it means being happy with what you're doing, building community, and producing something that people care about.

As one small business consultant once said of our program:

"Urban FIRE is simply the best entrepreneurship program I've ever taken at any price."

Another graduate said:

"If they had used this methodology in school, I would have done 100 times better."
