It took me until I was 48 years old to think about all this in detail.By that time I had lived 2496 Saturdays.If I live until 75, I only had 1404 of them left to enjoy.
So I went to a toy store and bought every single marble they had. I took them home and put them inside of a large, clear plastic container right here in the shack next to my computer. Every Saturday since then,I have taken 1 marble out and thrown it away.
By watching the marbles diminish, I focused more on the really important things in life. There is nothing like watching your time here on this earth run out to help get your priorities straight.
Die only with the regret that you can no longer do what gave you most pleasure.
