Live to the fullest!

See, the problem with doing things to prolong your life is that all the extra years come at the end, when you’re old.

Live your live to the fullest! Enjoy the perks of life now and do not constantly worry about the future. Living long is not worth anything as long as you merely exist. Living is only worth anything as long as you truly live.

Don’t waste your time preparing for growing old securely. Live!

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.

Get to know yourself

Be sure of the foudnation of your life. Know why you life as you do. Be ready to give a reason for it. Do not, in such matter as life, build an opinion or custom on what you guess is true. Make it a matter of certainty and science.

Travel!

If you’re 22, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.

Interests!

Formal education will make you a living. Self education will make you a fortune.

Jim Rohn

Your passion should be reason number one for what you learn.

As long as you learn for yourself and educate yourself in order to learn stuff you really care about, you are doing it right.
