As we age, experience is more important than things. Research shows that, post pandemic, that is now more true than ever. There has been a global realignment of our priorities. Experiences, especially family connection and travel, now dominate the top 10 sources of inspiration.
Marc Middleton recently had the chance to chat with a father and son from their home in Birmingham, England. Kevin Johnson is in his 60s and is a frontline worker for the National Health Service. Early on in the pandemic he became severely infected with COVID-19. He was quarantined at home, and made it through thanks in large part to his son Ned, who moved in and became his around-the-clock caregiver.
Kevin and Ned are both big Formula 1 race fans and when a man in the U.S., unable to be with his father who was battling Covid in Ireland, heard their story, he gifted them a once-in-a lifetime experience through a company called QuintEvents. They arranged for both to live their dream at the British Grand Prix including a close encounter with their favorite driver, Lewis Hamilton.
Check out their story, and hear the “What’s Next!” team share their bucket list dreams too.
