So what do you want to be remembered for? Be passionate about your work and what you do, nothing is wrong with that, but don’t put it so far to the front of your path that everything else falls to the side. Create and find a balance that works for you.
While this can be — and is — a powerful “aha moment” for some people, it’s also something we intuitively know. Life has a distinct finish line. It calls for perfection. One moment you’re alive and the next you’re not. Black and white. The great mystery is when. Some might have an inkling or an idea of when it’s coming if they are terminally ill or elderly, some might see the white light as they leave this world (though we’ll never know) but for most of us it’s a great mystery.
