Picture Your Life in Weeks

You can use grains of rice. Or, M&M’s.

Or for something more neat, a simple grid, like tic-tac-toe, where every enclosed box represents a week. With that, you could represent your whole life (in weeks) on single sheet of paper.

The points are these:

  • Your weeks are finite.
  • The early ones are up to your parents.
  • The late ones are up to your kids (or, perhaps more your relationship with them and theirs).
  • The middle ones are up to you.
  • Live for today, but not so much where tomorrow is a disaster.
  • Live to make others’ weeks great, but not so much where yours never are.
  • Don’t forget the first point.

So, how’s your week going?
