A Lesson Learned About the Time-Value of Living

091115 Me and My Dad This weekend marked 10 years since my dad passed away.

It's amazing to me how fast time flies, and yet how important he still is in my life. Rather than mourn his death, I celebrate what a great job he did living.

One of the things his passing taught me was the "time-value of life".

At the end, to him, one more year of living seemed priceless. Yet at that point, he was older and more infirm than at any other point in his life.

Wouldn't it be better to recognize the importance of living fully, earlier?

In other words, the best way to capture and leverage the value of this year is to live it fully now.

Wouldn't now be a good time to start?

  1. Losing a loved one taught me the same lesson. When we understand exactly how limited our time is, we value it differently. I know it’s been ten years, but please accept my condolences for the loss of your father.
