I was out at a networking event and a friend asked me, “Would you want to know when you’re going to die? And if your answer is yes, what would you do differently in your life now that you know?”
My answer was Yes, I would want to know. What would I do differently? As Steve Jobs said:
“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.”
