I know I’m a bit late to the party, but I ran across this Steve Jobs quote while waiting in a doctor’s office. This was from a commencement speech he gave. Anyway, I had to share:
“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.
“Almost everything—the 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 . . . There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
Definitely puts it in perspective. There is no reason not to follow your heart, people. Let’s do this thing!
P.S. If you haven’t heard Shannon Whitney Messenger’s amazing news, she had a book deal! A mega, super, awesome book deal. And she’s celebrating with a crazy fun contest that you need to check out by Oct. 22nd. Seriously, you don’t want to miss >>this.<<
