We’ve been told that being responsible means saving for retirement or for a rainy day. Sure, you need to be responsible. But you also need to live!
This doesn’t just apply to money. It applies to everything. As you maximize experiences and minimize things, really do your best to experience life.
If it’s a nice day, go outside and experience it. If you have work to do, try and do it outside or reorganize your schedule to give yourself some time outside.
We tend to procrastinate on the important things in life and devote too much of our time to the unimportant things. Don’t fall victim to this curse.
I enjoy talking to the elderly as they are often full of interesting stories and wisdom. I have heard so many times that one should spend more time with loved ones. Or they advise that we should pursue the things in life that give us the most pleasure and positivity.
How to reorganize and live for today:
- Look at your daily activities and see where you spend your time
- See what you can live without and eliminate those things
- Ask what you are missing in your life that you’d like to experience
- Incorporate those things in your life
If this process sounds too easy or too difficult, the next post sharing Ric Elias’s story will show you why it’s so important to not put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
