No Time for Bullshit

I’m spending this Sunday morning at the car wash – it appears a little mouse needed to take refuge in my vehicle during the harsh blast of winter weather we’ve had of late. And as those little fellas do so well…well, let’s just say the car needed to be cleaned. Thoroughly. 

Anywho, I’m passing time here, reading a few chapters of The Happiness of Pursuit, by Chris Guillebeau. It’s a timely read for me, as in the past few weeks since turning 50, I’m questioning my happiness all the more. 

The current chapter is about hobbies versus quests. It’s about the realization that our lives aren’t infinite, and we must realize that it’s important to live our lives the way we want to… RIGHT. NOW.  

“…what if you decided there’s no time for bullshit – or regrets – far in advance of the end? What if you vow to live life the way you want right now, regardless of what stage of life you’re in?

To truly live without regrets, pay attention. Ask yourself hard questions and see where they lead. Do I really want this job? Is this relationship right for me? If I could be doing anything, would it be what I’m doing today…or something different?”

Pretty heavy stuff here. Back to work.

    1. @midcenturycurves, the book is fantastic! I also found a great YouTube video where he talks more in-depth about the idea for the book. Will have to relocate and post it. Thanks for reading, by the way!
