Are you making the most of your life?

I just read this article in the online magazine The Week: http://theweek.com/article/index/257824/are-you-making-the-most-out-of-life-heres-how-you-can

I thought the info was really good and something I will keep in mind.   Here is a summary of what it says

Aim for a bit of these four each day:

1. Happiness: Feelings of pleasure or contentment in and about your life.

2. Achievement: Accomplishments that compare favorably against similar goals others have strived for.

3. Significance: A positive impact on people you care about.

4. Legacy: Establishing your values or accomplishments in ways that help others find future success. [Just Enough: Tools for Creating Success in Your Work and Life]

Measuring life by one yardstick won’t work. And moving through the four sequentially is a mistake too.

A favorite quote of mine by Warren Buffett sums it up:

I always worry about people who say, “I’m going to do this for ten years; I really don’t like it very well. And then I’ll do this…” That’s a lot like saving sex up for your old age. Not a very good idea.
