Is Life Living You?


One of my earliest posts on this blog leaned heavily on the following saying by Philip Larkin:

"Life has a practice of living you, if you do not live it".

Today, talking to a friend about short term plans for our lives and stuff, I was again reminded of the importance of that statement...

We all need to learn to consciously choose how we spend our time, who we spend it with, what we spend it doing... After all, in the end, the only difference between high achievers and average people may be found in their daily schedules...

When do you wake up? What do you splurge on? What do you do with your leisure time? How many hours do you spend messaging and using Twitter? How much do you save?

If we don't find answers to these questions consciously, life will find answers for us...and then we will have to live with the consequences of those answers...

Peace.
