I read an article about a book this morning about regrets of dying people. Not exactly light, cheerful reading but so very important. It’s a little morbid, but I’ve always tried to gain perspective by asking myself ‘Am I going to be worried about this when I’m on my deathbed?” Usually, of course, the answer is no. For me, I know I invest way too much energy on things that, in the grand scheme of things, don’t matter. They seem like they matter at the time, and, in the short term, they may be important. I think asking the question is a way of deciding how much energy and concern to invest, if any.
