“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” – Mahatma Gandhi
It is far too easy to push things off for tomorrow. Knowing that there is another day you can get whatever you need done. The problem with this, is that it never gets anything done. Imagine what would happen if you lived every day like it was your last day on earth. The meaning of everything in your world would drastically enrich.

To grow ourselves into the people we want to become. It is through these two principals that we can truly live life to its greatest potential.
