Shocked by the death of a close friend in his mid-twenties, Sebastian experienced a moment in his life where he asked himself a simple question; ‘Am I happy?’.

For over a decade Sebastian has been chasing down the goals on his list and teaching others how to do the same.

From marrying a stranger in Vegas (Goal #2) and delivering a baby (#23), to living on a deserted island for 1 week (#63) and even helping a quadriplegic man complete a half marathon by pushing him (#26), Sebastian’s story has been turned into a best-selling book, 100 Things, an ESPN documentary 100 things to do before you die, and a reality TV show 100 Things and a renowned keynote that has inspired millions of people around the world.

The impact of time and experience has helped shape Sebastian’s journey from the pursuit of fun and exciting life goals to the realization that these strategies transfer to the mechanics of organizational health.
