What will be left of you when there’s nothing left?
When your days are done, all the material things you had will be gone, no longer yours. The people who survive you will eventually pass on, too. The fun times, conversations and problems will all fade away like dust.
The only thing left to represent you 300 years from now will be what you did.
Are you doing anything — today, right now — that will last when you’re no longer around to tell people about it?
Doesn’t mean you have to be building a spaceship 24 hours a day; your thoughts are building blocks of your accomplishments just as much as anything. What are you occupying your mind with? When you have the time and opportunity to act, those same thoughts become your actions.
Will those actions last 300 years?
