Let’s be honest, we are all wrapped up with our everyday live, worrying about money, our career, our love (or not getting enough love), money, friends… you name it. Everyone of us has their own mind full of things that “matter”. “Matter” because, in the end, these are, after all, material matters (mostly are) that don’t really matter in the end, if it would be your last day of your life.
Studies have shown that most people would change their life on the dot, if they would know they only have to live for another month. As always, my first question is, why don’t you live the life that you want to live now? Why wait? Why waste time on things that don’t matter now? What are you waiting for?
One of those people that had a “wake up call” is Ric Elias. Ric was on the plane that crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. In this 5 minutes talk, he shares some important experiences with us. My favorite quote; “… I regret the time I wasted in things that did not matter with people that matter…“!
Enjoy the talk and make sure to let me know your thoughts.
