I know that seems a bit morbid but stick with me a moment.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Stay hungry. Stay foolish.” – Steve Jobs on leaving Apple, Aug 2011
Steve Jobs was prompted into thoughts of death by medical problems, but WE don’t have to be. From your brimming with health self – consider death and let it be your driving force to take action.
