Let's Chat | Steve Jobs, Happiness

Yesterday I was reminded me of a quote from Steve Jobs that I had come across before he sadly passed away.

'When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.'

— Steve Jobs 

There are times when you come across quotes which are so powerful, that they have the ability to make you want to change your mindset on the way you approach day to day life, and this is certainly one of those times. You hear people every day saying 'We only have one life' but that fact doesn't hit you properly until you sit down and actually think about whether you are spending yours how you would have hoped to. 

If what you do doesn't make you happy, look into changing it, because you cannot write off the possibility that things can get better, only you can make that happen. Life is beautiful, make sure you see it that way!
