A friend just sent me this note after reading “The Four Hour Week”….
“I am just finishing up Tim Ferriss’ book The Four Hour Work Week (I shared a quote from the book a few
day ago). When I fired up the Kindle this morning, and clicked “Next
Page” I landed on a quote from Steve Jobs (the first and only one on the
book – wow):
Thought it was worth sharing.
“For 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…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.”
