Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Life Advice: 'Do One Thing Every Day That You Look Forward To'

Its not too often that a 7'3" basketball legend lets the world in on his sensitive side. In a very personal op-ed recently, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reflected on his illustrious career and life as one of the greatest ever players in the NBA. Specifically, Abdul-Jabbar looked back to when he was 30 years old, having already accomplished many of his professional goals: leading scorer in the NBA, leading rebounder, leading blocker, Most Valuable Player, All-Star.


Abdul-Jabbar is the leading scorer in the history of the NBA, an actor, a best-selling author, a cancer survivor, and he was selected by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2012 to be a U.S. global cultural ambassador—so it's safe to say that following his advice could yield some interesting results. Each day, I would personally love to see something I was excited about on my to-do list.
