“No such thing as spare time, no such thing as free time, no such thing as down time. All you got is life time. Go.”
— Henry Rollins
You can do all this on your phone but we'd love it if you'd get a pen and paper for this one...
Here's the equation: 28,835 - (your age x 365)
Step 1. Take your age and multiply it by 365
Step 2. Subtract that number from 28,835
This is, on average in the US is the number of days you *might* have left.
But wait... there's more. On average:
You will sleep somewhere around 9500 of those days. You'll spend 5000 of those days on your phone. You'll spend 3200 of those days at work. You'll spend 1100 of those days commuting. You'll spend 1500 of those days doing household activities like cleaning, shopping, feeding pets, etc. 671 days bathing, grooming, and other bathroom-related activities. 720 days doing community activities like charity, service, classes, etc.
We'll pause there...
How many days might you have left? What will you do with those days? How will you rearrange priorities in your life to have a great story to tell at the end of them? When will you start? What if you started now? What if you started with this piece of paper?
Clock's tickin'. Start LIVIN'.
PS. Happy Halloween, yall! For the trick or treaters, here's a "sweet" video of this equation using jelly beans.
Save the wallpaper we've made for you above as a reminder to engage this week in conversations around your potential, the potential of your tribe, and to help in writing your best story.
