“Only put off until tomorrow what you are will to die having left undone” – Pablo Picasso
Do you have things that you’ve filed away in the “someday maybe” pile? Do some of them come up in your mind again and again…but you just don’t have the time, the money, or the space in your life? Don’t worry…this is natural. Most people have a fairly long list of fulfilling projects and soul-nourishing fantasy trips… but they have to wait until XYZ is complete.
Unfortunately, XYZ never gets complete. There is always something that will demand your attention if you let it. The car needs to be fixed, the kids need braces, emails need to be read and the house would just fall apart if you weren’t there to tend to it…right?
As I’m sure you know by now, life moves pretty fast, and every day things change. You only have so much time, and then it’s gone…seeming to have sneaked up on us.
In order to die having truly lived, start LIVING today. Write out a list of the things that matter most to you, go after them, and check them off as they are accomplished. Don’t let the distractions of life get in the way of what you really want to do.
And do it quick, before you lose another minute…
What is ONE thing that you HAVE to do before you die?
