According to the Mayan calendar, the world is ending in 2012. I don’t believe that it’s actually going to happen, but what if you knew for sure that it would? What would you differently? Would you stay at your current job? Would you spend as much time watching TV? Would you try to eat as much Chick Fil-A as possible (I would)?
Excluding the last one, the above questions are all worth asking yourself right now. Because if the world ends in 2012, you’ll want to make the most of the remaining 2 years. And if it doesn’t, then you’ve still just made the most of the last 2 years.
The point is that if you would change your life drastically knowing you had only had 2 more years to live, then maybe you’re doing something wrong (within reason of course, don’t go spending all of the money in your savings account or testing the limits of the law).
