Yesterday I had a very special day. I turned 30!
And I am trying to get used to this fact! Seriously, it is not so easy to pass this day! A set of questions was asked:
- Are you still doing what you love?
- Do you know what is your path?
- What did you achieve within your 3 decades?
- Are you happy?
Whoever you are, that wouldn’t go easy 😀.
Ask the questions above every day to know where you go. I would finish my today’s speech with a famous quote from Steve Jobs.
For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. 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.
