When someone suddenly dies, whether it’s family, friend or a famous person like Kobe Bryant, it often serves as a wake-up call. We’re reminded of how fragile and finite life is and, hopefully, inspired to take action.
As poet Mary Oliver asks us, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Here are some actions to consider:
- Reach out to that special someone so you can begin to repair a broken relationship.
- Schedule a medical check-up so you “know your numbers” and can make some healthy changes now.
- Research what it takes to get an advanced degree, certification, promotion or your own business and take the next first step.
- Drop or delegate the unnecessary obligations that weigh you down so you can enjoy better balance.
What’s your wake-up call action?
