In Knowing I Gave It My All, George talks to a friend about one of his own personal philosophies in life, which serves him as a great motivator for his goals and dreams.
George: There’s gonna come a time when I get too old for this. Going further out, there will come that day when I will be dying in my hospital bed, thinking back on my life and hoping that I gave enough.
Did I give enough? Did I give enough?
Thinking about the future me, as sad as that sounds, puts perspective on how I live my life today.
You see, I don’t want to be that dying old man in my hospital bed asking out loud if I gave enough.
It scares me. It scares me because when you reach that point you can’t go back, it’s too late. You either did, or you didn’t. There’s nothing worse then losing time.
I use that fear as one of my motivators. That fear makes me work hard each day because when the day comes when father time comes knocking, well, I hope that I’ll be able to go peacefully, knowing I did give it my all.
