The death clock is ticking— why do you postpone what is truly meaningful to you in life?
One of the biggest inspirations I got from the philosopher Seneca is this: always go to sleep thinking that you will never wake up again, and when you do wake up, imagine you will never go to sleep again.
When you meet someone, pretend like you will never see them again. And when others meet you, pretend like they will never see you again.
Don’t postpone anything that is personally-meaningful to you. Only postpone the superfluous in your life.
Avoid unimportant things
It is hard to know what is “important” to us in life. But it is easy for us to know what is “unimportant” to us in life.
So the secret to finding purpose in life is to just cut away unimportant meetings, activities, and social obligations.
Cut away 1 thing, everyday.
Everyday cut away a superfluous activity, negative person, or purposeless thing. The more you cut away, the more clarity and focus you will find in your life.
And treat everyday as if it were your last. Because one day, you certainly will be right.
