The Question

I was just watching a Steve Jobs speech (video) at a university's commencement and he mentioned something from his life that really touched me. For 33 years Steve Jobs woke up every morning and asked himself: "If today was the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" If the answer to that question was 'No' for too many days in a row, he knew he had to change something. Life is truly quite transient and we should not stutter and lose a moment to do something that we like and enjoy. We should not falter in trying to achieve what we believe in and what our heart wants as we face a situation where not having done something wont matter and having done it will have made the bigger impact. The world would be a much happier place to live in where we find the answers to things we are searching for much faster than we currently can.
