Today I saw something on a blog I visit regularly. I paraphrase (well, kind of): "A year is a very long time; it is more than 1 percent of what you are left with." Think about it. It's perfectly true and a little discouraging. Or, a little scary, depending on how you see it. And we generally tend to consider our lifetimes as really long. In any case, it reminds us to use our time (or what's left of it) well.
