“Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow.”

 ~John Wooden

This quote captures the essence of a meaningful life.  Too often, we miss opportunities to learn new skills, ideas, philosophies, ways of improving our lives and the lives of those around us.  And, we miss out too often on chances to take risks, meet new people, experience art, theater, music, etc.  Our lives are so hectic we find and sometimes create excuses as to why we can’t take the time to learn; why we can’t take the time to live.

Today’s assignment:  Take Coach Wooden’s advice to heart.  Learn something new today.  Take a risk.  You may live for decades (almost forever!), or you may die tomorrow.  Either way, don’t cheat yourself or those around you.  It’s time to JAM!
