It’s good to stop and rethink priorities.
There’s an article online called “The Tail End,” which powerfully shows how short life truly is.
Here’s one gem:
Turns out, by the time most of us finish high school, we’ve already used up 93% of our in-person, parent time.
That leaves less than 7% of our time left to be with them.
And for many of us, we now live in different cities and have our own families.
It makes getting together often hard to do.
Same goes if we’ve got brothers or sisters.
We may only have 10-15% of available time left with them now.
We’re in, “the tail end.”
The guy that actually wrote this article sadly experienced his dad unexpectedly passing away.
He was at his dad’s bedside.
Isn’t it true?
We never know how much time we have left with those we love, do we?
This can help us from time to time to RETHINK our personal priorities.
Not squandering away our life, our time, or the opportunities we have in front of us?
Making sure our focus is on the more important things.
Not sure about you, but I certainly don’t plan to spend the next 20 years stuck behind a stuffy cubicle.
Working 40 to 60 hours a week, M-F, and leaving no time to enjoy time with those I love the most.
Especially when there’s so many alternatives and ways we can work less, earn more, and have a great lifestyle and freedom.
What will you decide to do?
