Take the opportunity today to consider your death bed speech.

JULY 7th of ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time.

Sounds a bit morbid doesn’t it? It’s not supposed to be. Imagine for a moment that you are on your death bed, not some day way off in the future, but next week!

Your family and friends are gathered around the bed and you decide to review your life. You thank them all for being loving friends and family. You thank them for all the wonderful experiences they have shared with you. You then consider if you have any regrets about things you never got around to doing – 99% of us have them.

If you knew you were going to die within a few hours or days and that those things would be left undone, unachieved – how would you feel?

For me, I’d be pretty frustrated that I’d run out of time. I’d probably lie there and ponder those missed opportunities and wonder why I didn’t just get on and do them. Life is so short, I’d think, why didn’t I just do them?

So that’s the point of today’s ponder – not to get morbid, but rather to get motivated. Remember those things you keep saying you’d love to do – and start planning them. Today!

Life IS too short.

As Buddha once said: ‘The trouble is, you think you have time.

  1. Stu, great post. I have done this often. Being a breast cancer survivor I know first hand that we are not guaranteed anything, but to die. Enjoy each moment, be productive and try to have as few regrets as possible. 🙂

  2. Great post – and the Buddha was quite right. Once again, Stu, you get us thinking!

    • Thanks Matthew. I gave this book to an older friend of mine a while back and like most people he immediately flicked through to his birthday – and this was it! You can imagine his reaction. 🙂
