Use it!!!

Do you buy or possess an item and plan to preserve it till its shelf life is over and throw it away unused? If thats what you do, you may happily skip this post.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, no money left, cigar in one hand, favourite drink in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming 'WOW-What a ride!

I read this on a blog and it set me thinking if I am using, or like my company puts it "leveraging" all the resources I have, including me. Reminds me, I need to make that list of 50 things to do before I die. What do you want to do before you die? C'mon lets know your ideas too...

Well Sneha,
That is how I am living now, skidding sideways, cigar in one hand and lots of drinks in the other!
Always saying, whoa, what a ride, bring it on!!
Now coming to what do I want to do before I die, I wanna meet all my friends, whom I have lost touch over the years and say I am sorry for being such a jerk that I was!
:)

Never made a list of to do's before I die because I never think of death and I live for the moment so love to do all things that are possible :)

everytime i get a scare in life..i tell myself...I have to do all these things I've been meaning to do...but everytime that scare goes away I'm back to living life peacefully, but with the knowledge that nothing is forever..of course....
I can't make a list. i'll never end up doing the things on the list and that would make me more disappointed. it will become another list.but then not making one too, does not mean that i don't do things I want. whenever I come across something that I really want to do, and i'm afraid, i take the plunge...and just do it.

@AjAy: thats the comment I expect.. way to go..

me says: live for the moment, but also make that moment count. put down the list, guys....

Who don’t want their life to take a ride on a smooth NH, but how many of us will take it with challenge considering the series of ups and downs if we were put on Gravel Road..

I am utterly worn-out in my mind…Though I don’t have a Fag in one hand and Drink on the other; I always say what a roller-coaster ride I had….

Wish list ;)

I want everything back.
Missed opportunity,
Lost friends,
My innocence,
My school days: Time I was a great dreamer and an eternal optimist,

vidya said...

:) I've only always just thought of making a list. Things to do before 30 will soon get converted to Things to do before you die :)

But ok, this is quite inspiring ;)
