At the time of writing:

  • Christmas is one month and one day away.
  • There are only 37 days to go in the year.
  • My kids finish their school year in a couple of weeks.
  • Our oldest son starts high school next year and he becomes a teenager in March.

Time just flies.

Another week, month, year will be over soon.

Another birthday or anniversary milestone will be upon us quickly.

Our opportunity to do meaningful work and make a positive difference in the world is so fleeting.

I know that 10 or 20 years seems like a long period of time, but the reality is that it’s all over very quickly and before you know it, we’re done.

And this post isn’t an observation about how short life really is, but a plea to make sure that you don’t waste a moment of it.
