How outliers think about time

Last night a box arrived via UPS. The box began its journey in China.

 

How do outliers think about time?

Different outliers think about it differently, so i’m sharing my perspective.

In late 2008, at 49, i found clarity on the reality no male on my Dad’s side lived past 60.

i made a 10-year plan to do everything i want to do in life before i turn 60.

The talking behind your back when you are an outlier is something you have to accept (and ignore).

“You’re in great shape Jeff. You’ll probably outlive us all.”

Isn’t that a nice thing to say to me?

Except.

How about early onset, rapid-progression Alzheimers?

You can physically be present, and not have a clue who the people are around you. You can even reach a point when you forget how (or why) to swallow food.

A tragic accident. Anything, really, can alter everything.

i am not living with anxiety that the end is near.

i’m living with an excitement and a decision-making karma that is allergic to excuses about waiting for the time to be right to do the stuff we said we want to do.

It’s glorious.

i wish it for you.

Can you envision a future without paper files?

i can.

PS. It’s worrisome though, my hometown revolves around a massive paper-mill.

Hear the news from Cheryl that Dad’s Nursing Home is recommending Hospice for Dad.

Go to bed remembering what i wrote in Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit

The three most magnificent days in our life are the day we are born, the day we figure out why, and the day we die.

Praying Dad sees it the same way.

Dad is 91.

He’s ready.

And i believe he’s been praying for his third most magnificent day.

Pick one of the three personal approaches you think will serve you best

Rush hour traffic was moving slow and this caught my eye.

We either have an organized home environment all the time, a disorganized home environment all the time, or a mixture.

Which one of the three would you opt for if you had the choice?

Ok.

What’s your choice?

Are you convinced that is the home organization path that will serve you best?
