What’s a place you’ve always wanted to visit? Think of your dream adventure destination and now really picture it. And now imagine you finally get to go, but there is one catch. It will only be for a weekend, just one weekend and you will never be back.
How efficiently would you plan a trip like that? What would you do when you arrive? How would you organize your time? Would you sleep in until noon and spend any of it watching TV or checking in at the office? And who else would you want there? Would you want to bring along the love of your life or people who bring you down? I’d imagine you’d pack as many good memories and experiences you possibly could in a once in lifetime trip like that.
Once in a lifetime. One lifetime. YOLO. You get only one of these to do all things you want to do.
Whether you think life is short or long is inconsequential. The point is it’s finite, yet we often tacitly behave in way that suggests it’s never going to end. Life is too short and too long not to be spent doing what you love with the people you love. Pithy but true.
