"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." ~Steve Jobs
Martin and Henry attempt to tackle this MASSIVE MBM, "Mind Bullet Monday" topic— the unlikely value that is inherent in death.
While death is a tragic— the IDEA of death especially to the living ; ) provides immense value when it is used as a tool to inspire immediacy and action and add more life to the present!
Martin says, "I had no idea we were going to go here but, Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford immediately comes to mind." "Consider" he says, how Jobs' acute awareness to his limited amount of time might've factored as a catalyst to Apple's growth in his final years."
Martin even reads a few sentences from Jobs' Stanford 2005 commencement speech:
"... It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true."
Henry praises his wife and her sense for immediacy and action and doing things that are important recognizing there really are no guarantees.
MG insists that just the word and idea of death forces one to think immediately about life and even how they are living and of course, what they want to accomplish BEFORE they die! If you heard the John Lingham episode #S3-025 know this to be true! Then both MG and HE review a few short and powerful exercises that YOU CAN DO around the idea of death to inspire action and more LIFE TO YOUR LIFE!
