We all know that life is brief from an intellectual standpoint. But how many of us genuinely go about our daily lives as if we’re going to die tomorrow?
Many of us have tedium, responsibility, and disagreeable chores in our lives. We expend so much mental energy just surviving through each day that it’s easy to forget that our time on this planet is limited and that each moment we waste is one we’ll never get back.
What would you do differently if you truly understood the impending death? Is it necessary to undergo a near-death experience in order to understand the fragility of life?
35+ Life Is Too Short – Quotes to focus you better it

That isn’t to argue that tedium can be fully removed from your everyday routine. Even if you win the jackpot or sell your business and retire, you will still have duties and responsibilities you don’t want to fulfill.
However, we should not use our responsibilities as an excuse to avoid pursuing the freedom to pursue the things that are truly important to us.
