“The greatest gift you have to give is yourself. There is no substitute.”

-Robert E. Staub, II

Imagine you suddenly find yourself on your deathbed, with just an hour to live. Take some time to reflect on your life and now complete this sentence (as many different ways as it comes to you): “I wish I’d spent more time. . .”

Now ask yourself, “What am I waiting for? Today, and every day, what is one small action that I can take, one that is in alignment with my vision of a life well-lived?” Allow the advice of your future self to lead you today!
