Something we should all take note of!

Post to Twitter

Am just finishing one of my latest (and many new books!) “The 4 hour working week” by Tim Ferriss.

As well as being a great business and ideas book, the final chapter listed something that I just had to share.

It’s so true, and often take for granted, so I’m going to share this with you.

Stop what you’re doing, and read it all the way through. The following is direct from the book;

“Two years ago, I received an e-mail from a terminally ill girl in a NY hospital.

Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterflies erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day, On the fly?

When you ask: How are you? Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed, with the next 100 chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short, the music won’t last.

Ever told your child, we’ll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die? Cause you never had time to call and say, “Hi!”

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere, You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day, It’s like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race. Do take it slower.

Hear the music……..before the song is over.

I think everyone can relate to most of this…..leave a comment below if this affects you, and you will make a change, change focus, slow down, or just think about things more in future……..
