Steve Jobs gave a vale­dic­to­ry to the grad­u­at­ing class at Stan­ford in 2006 that is con­sid­ered a clas­sic and has been wide­ly quot­ed: fol­low your pas­sion; don’t live some­one else’s life. Sound, bril­liant, obser­va­tions.

The part of that speech that res­onates for me and that isn’t as wide­ly quot­ed: “When I was 17, I read a quote that went some­thing like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, some­day you’ll most cer­tain­ly be right.’ It made an impres­sion on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mir­ror every morn­ing and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’”

And when­ev­er the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change some­thing.”

How about you?? I still ask myself that ques­tion.
