“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.’

It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

– Steve Jobs at The Stanford University Commencement Speech, 2005

Every day, we get caught up in the busy-ness of life – and pass over ephemeral moments of simple pleasures.

What linger behind at the end of each day are memories of things we didn’t do and experiences we didn’t relish because we thought there would be no last time.

What’s on your list of things you really want to do every day?

What are the experiences you really want to relish every day?

What memories do you really want to create every day?

What legacy do you really want to build every day?

What pursuits do you really want to accomplish every day?

If anything on your last time list is more than a week old, you should do it today.

If anything on your last time list is more than a month old, you should do it now.

Make it happen.

Seize the moment.

Go.
