Every now and then you hear a speech that really makes you think. The words from Steve Jobs after his diagnosis with cancer really woke me up. They were sobering words that seemed to keep ringing in my ears even after the video ended. Here is a little bit of that speech…
“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
We are coming to the end of another year and I want you to answer that question for yourselves.
“Do you want to do what you are about to do today?”
If you aren’t happy with the way things are going, today is the day to make the change. These changes are often simple and easily implemented, but they make a big difference.
What is one thing that you would like to do different this year?
Will you start today? If not… why not. This is your moment!
