"Live each day like it's your last."
People latch on to this idea like it's the gold standard of living a meaningful life. Truth is, it's probably the one maxim that - if you truly embraced it - would turn you into a self-centered slug in less than a day. (Which is one of the many reasons that few of us will ever honestly do it.)
Sure, it's intended to motivate us into an attitude of carpe diem, but really - if you knew that this was your final day, wouldn't that fact tend to bring out the worst (or at least, the most annoying) aspects of your personality?
I say yes. Listen to the blog, and let's see if you agree. While you're at it, let's think about a better way to live - one that guarantees that every day will be as meaningful as your last day.
