Live each day like it’s your last

Yesterday, I commented on Steve Job’s Stanford Commencement speech.  Another quote worth commenting on is this:

“When I was seventeen I read a quote that went something like, ‘if you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right’. It made an impression on me, and since then for the past thirty three years, I’ve 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?’ Whenever the answer has been ‘NO’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

So, as we each think about 2009, what the future holds and what we’d like to achieve, the question is:  “if today was the last day of my life, would I be satisfied?”
