Recovering from a near-death experience brings wisdom to those of us living comfortably. It helps us remember what is possible and what really matters. Today’s guest, Billy Creutz, talks about how to live every minute to the fullest, since you never know how long you have.
Have you ever had a moment(s) when you woke up to the awe of being alive, of living on a planet floating in space?? It is wilder and more profound than we often think about.
Moments of awe can be felt during something exciting, surprising, or even during deep grief and loss. But the feeling usually passes and we go back to the humdrum of daily life and all that needs to get done. It can be easy to take life for granted. I know I often do.
Today’s Man Alive Podcast guest, Billy Creutz, had a brush with death that allowed for a powerful perspective shift. Because it’s hard won, I find it an incredible gift to talk to someone who has gone through this and gleaned wisdom on the other side. Billy was clear that his harrowing experience and weeks in the hospital, wondering whether he would lose his digits, did not immediately reveal an epiphany. But over time he has discovered how to live in a way where more time is spent in rich and meaningful experiences.
Billy is a 20-year Air Force Veteran, a husband of 27 years, a father, an artist and the CEO of Living Every Minute. In our fascinating conversation we discussed…

- How your life benefits when you get rid of transactionality
- Billy’s near death experiences on Japan’s deadliest mountain and his life-changing lessons
