The phone rang.
I heard my wife start crying. I knew exactly what happened.
My wife’s brother had passed away.
For the last 3-1/2 years he had been battling a rare form of cancer.
On Friday, it finally took his life.
That’s why I’ve gone “dark” over the last five or six days.
We immediately packed our bags, hopped in the van, and started driving to West Virginia to be with my wife’s family.
I drove straight through the night while my wife and boys got some sleep.
Somewhere between Little Rock and Memphis, around 3am, it hit me.
Our time in this world is limited. Reminds me of one of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes:
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid thinking you have something to lose.”
I think about this every single day.
I see so many people going through life like it’s something they HAVE to do every day.
That’s not a life I would want to live. Dreading the day ahead of me before I even get out of bed.
Another one of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes is:
“If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you’re about to do today?”
Every day I ask myself this question as well and if any day the answer is “NO”…
I make a note to never do what I’m doing that day again.
In the last year and a half, the answer to that question has never been “NO”.
I’ve designed my life, and my family’s lives, to be exactly how we want it.
Which allows us to be able to just pack our bags and drive across the country at the blink of an eye.
The opportunities I’ve capitalized on online over the last few years have provided the financial security we need to live our best life.
Now I would like to share those opportunities with you.
Don’t let this one pass you by.
Dream big. Take action.
