Live forever or die tomorrow?

Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow. — Mahatma Gandhi

I often wonder how fast or how slow to go.

Looking far into the future is a great as for a learning horizon. It means building layers of understanding that can lead to wisdom.

Living as if you’ll die tomorrow means keeping the slate clean, having your affairs in order, and keeping open connections with those in your life.

After all, none of us know when we may not be here.

This approach feels as if it might be liberating. If you try this, let me know how it works for you.
