The Question Everyone Should Ask Themselves, Part One
I was going to put up a post with a bunch of stuff that made me laugh in the past few days. But some very serious issues have been eating at me for a while now, demanding to be written down. I can't ignore them much longer.
I don't care who you are or what you do for a living. I want you to answer a question. A question that everyone should ask themselves at some point in life.
First, if you can, watch this video. It shows CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr Sanjay Gupta, a successful broadcaster and brain surgeon, giving the commencement address to the graduating class of the University of Michigan last week. He's funny, he's engaging, but he has some very important life lessons to teach.
It's 20 minutes long, but it may change your life.
Notice how he breaks every lesson down. Write them down. Remember them. This man got a standing ovation from 40,000 people that day.
Now I want you to come back tomorrow, whether you watched it or not. Because I will ask you a very important question. A question every person in this world should ask themselves before they die.
