What is Really Important When Life’s Clock is Ticking?

One more thought today, picked up off Facebook from Eric Folkerth; posted here to share and keep for future reference.

Said from a man who reshaped the global landscape. 

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. … Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

–Steve Jobs, Chairman, and former Chief Executive Officer of Apple Inc.
