Steve Jobs said in a 2005 Commencement address: “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.”
We only get one go around in life. Just one chance to make our world a better place. Just one chance to connect with God and make a difference. The years are rolling on and we only have a little time left in this one chance.
Remembering that you’ll be dead soon ought to motivate you to take more risks, stand up bolder and speak a little louder. Its your one chance. What will you do with your chance?
