          I recently asked myself if I would be doing what I'm doing now if I knew my time here was limited. It is of course limited - whether it's one day or 60 years. The hypothetical time span of remaining life gave differing answers.

          The longer I think I have to live, the more I am willing to try things I'm unsure about, things I want to do purely for the experience to see what it has to teach me about life and about myself, what opportunities it may bring that I've never considered.

          The shorter time remaining scenario has me very focused on what I keep putting on the back burner when I get stuck or uncomfortable.

            I don't want to sound like a cliche' dickhead but I can honestly say that I made this decision YEARS ago - probably when we moved to Colorado. I won't ever not take risks or sit and do something I do not want to do unless there is some absolute necessity at that particular time. There isn't anything I want to do that I am not doing right now that I can think of. I do understand that I may well be in the huge minority, though.

              I only recently backed off the amount of hours I work. Some of you may still think I am crazy with all I have going on. But it has gotten far better and far more flexible. Things such as dinner at home with Jess and getting to the gym on certain days/times to hang with friends has just become more and more enjoyable and worth sacrificing some dollars for.

              That said, things I do put in a decent number of hours and live by the "work hard, play hard" adage as we do enjoy nice things, traveling, etc. But I see myself only reducing more and more after school is finished to not only enjoy those big things but also the everyday little things that have been overlooked and sacrificed in my quest to "get it in now while I'm young".

                I don't think anyone would doubt by the fruits of your laboring that you live your dreams. You've been at the top of a cut throat business for a long time.

                  I bet momentum to just keep going right now is pretty important too. Once school is over your can adjust and reevaluate things.

                    So less time would make you confront more important issues in your life?

                      Yes. Application is hard but to keep that mindset you need to feed it. So motivational speakers, books and quotes can keep that fire and passion directed.

                        The issues are being confronted now, so more along the lines of figuring out the time management aspect of trying to get all the things done I want to do.

                          It is ultimately great advice because our time here is so short. However, it is ultimately very hard to apply. Especially as a young 23 year old who just quite has not found my path yet. But I do know what excites me so that is a great boost

                            Whatever you do, don't wait until you're 40's to start following what you want. I've always wanted to lift weights and be a bodybuilder but was too embarrassed by what people's opinions of that...even my family's. So here I am at 43 years old and have been lifting off/on whenever I could for the past 2 years. I'm almost to old to get the muscle mass that I want because I'm still a newby as far as lifting and haven't even started a nutrition program yet. But I have to do this anyway, even if I fail miserably...at least I tried.

                            But you're 23...some people will say you have all the time in the world....DON'T LISTEN TO THEM. Do it now and you won't regret it later.

                              And that is totally the point. Great response!
