Gandhi said, “Live like you’re going to die tomorrow”. Does that work for you?
There are 2 types of death – the ones you know about ahead of time and the surprise ones. The ‘you’ve got 6 weeks to live’ version and the no-notice version. The odd thing is we know we are going to die; today, tomorrow, next year, in 50 years…who can say? But we know it’s coming and my question for you is ‘are you ready’?
How many weeks have you lived since you turned 18? I’ve had about 1500 weeks since my 18th birthday to be fully alive. If that hasn’t been enough to work on my I’m-dying-to-do-list then I’m not sure getting 6 weeks notice will be much use to me.
Would you have a to-do list if you were told today that you had 6 weeks to live? What’s on it? Write everything down and then go do it, now. Don’t wait; why would you?
It’s not your bucket list, it’s your “what would I do if I knew I was dying 6 weeks from today” list?
If you read this blog will you please join my experiment – to live each day in such a way that I am ready to die tomorrow? Invite your friends to participate, tell everyone about your new commitment to be fully alive till you’re fully dead.
