Reality Check: Your Wake-Up Call Has Arrived -Live Life to the Fullest

Today, I wanted to chat about something super important: living life to the fullest. You know, striking that balance between being intentional about how we live and just going with the flow.

Ever heard of the saying “Memento Mori”? It’s Latin for “remember that you shall die.” Now, I know it sounds a bit morbid, but bear with me. I see it as a reminder to make the most of every moment we’ve got. And guess what? Studies have shown that thinking about our mortality actually helps us focus on what truly matters in life.

Let me throw some numbers at you. Imagine we live to be 80 years old. That’s roughly 4,000 weeks to do all the things we want to do. Now, take away the time we spend sleeping, eating, and doing everyday stuff, and suddenly, that window of opportunity gets a lot narrower. Sobering, right?

I put a ton of time into my latest video, watch it here:  “Mortality: Your Wake-Up Call to Living a Life Well Lived”

Now, let’s talk about knowing what we want. It’s not always easy to figure that out. But fear not! I’ve got a little tool called the Kenny Boy Value Tool (KBVT) to help us out. It involves jotting down everything we want for 10 days straight, then sorting out our top 10 wants and top five values. Trust me, it works like a charm!

Here’s the kicker: life’s a bit like a coin with two sides, each holding its own truth. We’ve got to embrace the paradox and find our balance. That’s where the concept of Wu Wei comes in—doing without doing, going with the flow. It’s about trusting that things will work out as they should

I love what Steve Jobs used to do. He’d ask himself, “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do?” It’s a powerful reminder that life is short and constantly changing. So, why waste time on things that don’t bring us joy?

Now, let’s talk about being present. I mean, really present. It’s about tuning into the here and now, breathing deeply, and embracing the rhythm of nature. After all, we’re already where we need to be. We just need to open our eyes and see it.

So, my friends, let’s make the most of this beautiful journey called life. Remember, mortality is not the end—it’s our wake-up call to truly start living.

Major Takeaways:

1. Embrace Mortality: Instead of fearing it, use the awareness of your mortality to live each day with purpose and intention.

2. Find Your Balance: Strive for a balance between planning for the future and being present in the moment, allowing yourself to go with the flow when needed.

3. Live in the Now: Practice being fully present in each moment, appreciating the beauty and rhythm of life as it unfolds before you.

So, what are you waiting for?Let’s seize the day and make every moment count!
