Many people run through life as though it is a 100m sprint. Think of it more as an Ultra-marathon. That will take you down scenic and memorable routes. Through some really tough times. But it will make you stronger. It will make you wiser.
If you do want to think of it as a race- run it as a marathon. If you can think of it as otherwise, take your time, decide on what really excites you- and then make your move! Your boat is yours! It will stay docked till you are you ready to board.
Enjoy your life.
Make it memorable.
More power to you!
