If today were your last day, what would you be doing?
I really despise this question. If it were my last day I wouldn’t be doing any of the crap I had to do. I wouldn’t do homework. I wouldn’t watch tv. I wouldn’t show up at work, because nothing would matter. I wouldn’t have to plan for tomorrow or the rest of my life.
Guess what? If it were my last day, I wouldn’t know it. You have to live for tomorrow. Yes, it is important to do what makes you happy and to take time out of your day for yourself and what is truly important.
However, this question really does no good whatsoever. It just makes you think about all the crap that you have to do that you really rather wouldn’t and makes you feel like crap. You can’t live each day like it’s your last because if you did you would be broke, have no future and basically be SOL.
So, yes, take time out of your day to be thankful for what you have and tell those that you love that you love them, but don’t forget to plan for the future. Don’t worry too much about it either, though.
For goodness sake, stop asking people what they would be doing if it were their last day and certainly don’t tell them to “Live each day like it’s their last,” because that’s just idiotic.
