If not now, when?

Why does a clarity of vision come at the end of our lives, twelve weeks before our deathbed?

Doing what you're told is the most common regret of the dying.

“I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

Death compels us to prioritize the things we care about: our true self, family and friends, a real passion, whatever we hold dear to our heart.

The real message is to avoid wasting time. To express ourselves fully, to drive ourselves of bed to get things done, turning authenticity and courage into action.

  1. This is so true! We have to live life to the fullest, set goals, and take advantage of every minute.

  2. There is no time like today and you might not have a tomorrow, go for it and follow your heart and dreams!

  3. “If not now” may mean “never.” The reality is that none of us are guaranteed tomorrow or the health to enjoy it. That’s why my husband and I travel now and regularly contribute to a travel fund so that we can afford to do so. We believe that experiences in life are worth way more than collecting mass amounts of wealth that we may never get a chance to spend.
