The decades are short
Tomorrows will run out
“Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we’ll always have tomorrow to do our most important and valuable work. We fill our days with frantic activity, bouncing from task to task, scrambling to make deadlines and chase the next promotion. ...
Here’s the hard truth: sooner or later all of our tomorrows will run out, so how we choose to spend today is significant.
... It’s not about slaving over a project or living on a whim—it’s about embracing the idea that time is finite and making the unique contribution to the world that only you can make.”
This is not to say that we do not need to give it our best.
“Work very hard … but not so hard that the rest of your life passes you by.
The days are long but the decades are short.”
Having gone through life for a few decades, I wholeheartedly agree with Sam. The decades are indeed short.
Have a great day.
