The importance of death

On a day when the world mourns the death of a visionary, I ponder about the words that he left behind:

For the past 33 years, everyday in the morning I’ve looked in the mirror and I’ve asked myself, “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” and whenever the answer has been ‘no’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
