A Powerful Morbid Question

I’ve recently seen plays and movies focused on our mortality (Our Town, Synechode--New York). These artworks ask us to ponder our choices because, no matter how long we live, our time is limited. Natasha Richardson’s terrible accident has also pushed this point forward in me.

While it may seem morbid, a classic coaching question can help us locate the essential in our life: If you only had 6 months to live, what would you change about your life?

Are you living the life you most desire?

I wish you many healthy, happy years to come but the question is still useful …..what would you change if you only had 6 years, 6 months, or 6 days?
