This is always an exciting time of year here at Pine Press Printing with the holidays, year-end wrap up and getting together with loved ones. This time of year always seems to be the best time for reflection to take some measure of what you’ve accomplished and where you are heading next. In that spirit, over the past few weeks with the help of my wife Lori, I’ve been doing some serious reflecting.
I believe it was Michael Landon who said:
“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day”.
I just love this quote. Its easy to take it all for granted sometimes… we get stuck in our own rut… wake up, take shower, get kids to school, go to work, come home, cook dinner, clean house, watch TV, bedtime… repeat.
I challenge you to sit down by yourself for 15 minutes today and think about the things you always wanted to do… the things you were going to do… the things that you would have, should have, could have done, “if only”.
Make a list of these things, pick something, and do it.
Here are three tips to keep in mind:
- 1. Do It Now! – There is no better time than the present.
- 2. Seize the Opportunity – Opportunities are those things that may present themselves once in a lifetime and in a very small window of time. Most of us wish we would have taken more risks in our lives.
- 3. Never Give Up! – One of my favorite quotes is “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas Edison
