Recently I watched The “Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3115188410730134929) If you haven’t seen it you should take the time to do that. This video had such an impact on me that I woke the next morning thinking, “What am I living for?” Am I living for yesterday, today or am I focused on my tomorrows?
We have all heard the saying “Live for today, for tomorrow you die.” I say, “Live for tomorrow, for today you could die.” The difference is that when you focus on tomorrow you accomplish much. What will you leave behind? Will you leave a legacy or are you selfishly living for your own gratification with no thought of tomorrow?
I must finish by noting a line from the video, “I did have a deathbed conversion, I just bought a Macintosh.” I know there are some who will giggle with me here. This line is for you.
