Your Last Day to Live with Scott White
If you only had one day to live, how would you spend it? Every single minute matters. Live today like it could be your last.
In this episode, Scott White teaches the principles from his best-selling book, The Life Is Too Short Guy. You’ll learn how to make every day your best day ever, the power of positivity, and the importance of being intentional with how you choose to use the remaining minutes of your life.
Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:
- Minutes matter
- Take a chance and get it done today
- Attitude is everything: the power of positivity
- LIVE for today, don’t wait for tomorrow
[04:58 ] Minutes Matter
You don't know what tomorrow is going to bring so make the most of every day. You have a finite number of minutes. So you have to choose how you're going to use those minutes. Minutes are a commodity so you don’t have an endless amount of them. They are fading away and you don’t actually know how many minutes you still have left. So think about how you are using your minutes. Be thoughtful, be deliberate and use them in ways that make you happy. And if you use them in ways that don't make you happy, today is the day to make that change.
[24:12 ] Attitude is Everything
There will be twists and turns and there will be setbacks. That's the reality. But think about the power of positivity as a proposition to wake up to and set the course for the day, instead of staying in bed where you’re warm and comfortable. You have the proactive ability to choose your attitude.
[35:25 ] LIVE for Today
If you were to write your own eulogy, what would it be? How do you want people to remember you? Take a minute to reflect on that and whether that’s the life you're living right now. And if it's just aspirational, then today's the day to make a proactive plan to live that life because you don't know what tomorrow is going to bring.
[04:58 ] Minutes matter. You could die tomorrow. Make the most of today. [05:02 ]
[09:56 ] Think about how are you using your minutes. Be thoughtful, be deliberate and use them in ways that make you happy. And if you use them in ways that don't make you happy, today is the day to make that change. [10:07 ]
[25:23 ] Attitude is everything, the power of positivity – it sets you on the right road. [25:28 ]
