The single most powerful motivator in the Universe is simply to realize that you are not infinite.
As a human being, you are finite. You have a certain amount of time to create value and offer it to the world.
What would you do if you knew that you only have 336-months left to live?
The fact is, at my current age, if I lived as long as my Dad, Mom and Grandparents I’d have about 336 months left on Earth.
WOW, was that a wake up call. Here’s how I got to that figure.
I took the age of my Dad, Mom, Grandmother, and Grandfather at the time of their death and added them up.
Then I divided by four to get an average.
That gave me a life expectancy average age of 85-years old. I know, it’s not truly scientific, but it is close enough for the purpose outlined here.
I subtracted my current age of 57, multiplied by 12 (for 12-months), and arrived 336 months.
A harsh truth but reality nonetheless.
Give it a try. You’ll never look at your life the same way again.
