Death is freaking scary! How much life do you have left? 14,000 Days? Maybe 17,000? From the day we are born we are slowly dying. We are immortal. But today, I encourage you to ask this one important question.

How will you make every single day count?

We spend hours, months, even years planning our retirements, weddings, and vacations. But what if we took a few minutes to plan our time on earth. How much time will you sleep? How much time will you work? More importantly, how much time will we spend having fun with the people you love? This video answers these questions.

How did this video make you feel? Do you sleep too much? Do you work too much? How would you like to spend your free time? Let me know in the comments below.

    I work way too much. Worry way too much. I feel like picking up my daughter from school and going to the beach. But first I need to remind the people that I love, how much I truly love and appreciate them.

    Wow… what a great eye opener! It is obvious we are not spending our time on what really matters… most people don’t spend time developing them selves after they finish school. I will definitely start dedicating more of my time working on me and my own happiness… cause if, in the end, we did not do the things we wanted, we did not accomplish the goals and dreams we had, and we did not take any chances in life, we will be filled with regret at our deathbed, knowing that there is absolutely nothing we can do to change it! So start living!

    Thanks for sharing this great video.

      I was pained to overlook the immortal typo as well. Pondered if a “not” was mistakenly omitted or if mortal was intended. I attempted to move on. But then it continued to nag at me. I feel validated I wasn’t the only one who noticed.

        I don’t think “immortal” was a typo. I think it means our souls are immortal, but our bodies are mortal. We only have “X” amount of time on this planet. so we need to make every day count. This is a great video! I’ve heard that we have on the average 17,000 days in our lives, and it really makes you think about your life. The problem is that we think we have time, but we really don’t. Don’t wait for the perfect time to do what you want to do with your life, because there is never a perfect time. Be happy and grateful for what you have, whether it’s material objects or people you love, and most importantly, have fun!

    The only thing I see that is off right now is the fact that the intro says we are immortal. I think they mean that “we are mortal” or “we are not immortal”

    Very thought-provoking and inspirational. Like many others, I do work too much due to a myriad of responsibilities, being conscientious, and caring about my students’ learning styles, skills, and life applications because I want to make a difference. It is true that our lives are eternal or immortal. There is life after this life, so this life is a preparation for the one that follows. I want to reflect more on how to spend this one as meaningfully as possible with my wife, family, loved ones, friends, and colleagues but especially with my Creator who gives me purpose and intimate loving relationship.
