Henry David Thoreau famously wrote, “The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation.” I don’t know exactly what he meant, because I wasn’t inside his head when he wrote it, but I think the general gist is, for whatever reasons, most people don’t live the lives they are capable of, or the lives they want to live.
To which I say, if that describes you, don’t be one of those guys. The clock is ticking. Life is shorter than you know. If you know you’re not doing what you really want to be doing, start making decisions and taking actions that put you in a position to do what you really want to be doing.
I say, do yourself a favor and do whatever it takes to make the most of every day you have. Do whatever it takes to seize any opportunity you have. Take the life you’ve been given and grab it by the short and curlies.
Take no prisoners. Live your life so when it’s all said and done, you have no regrets. Live your life like you mean it.
And while you’re at it, make sure it’s manly, every step of the way.
