I think people are crazy who tell you to live every day like it was your last.
Because if today was MY last day I would certainly call into work and say something like
"Uh hey guys. I'm gonna be kinda busy today..
and um I won't be in tomorrow because it looks like I have dying on my schedule sometime before then."
I would probably stop in and say goodbye, but certainly wouldn't be putting in a full day.
I just CAN'T live every day that way. I need some cash flow, and as much as we like to tease each other, I am sure my boss would get sick of that call quickly. And he would probably like it if I came into work most days.
I would also probably spend too much, eat too much, and stay up way too late.
Just seems like a bad pattern to observe daily.
