Quote Roulette: Dean Smith

“If you treat every situation as a life and death matter, you’ll die a lot of times.”

Dean Smith

Is that checklist a life or death moment? Or, better yet, missing your significant other’s date night to get extra work done? How do we measure what gets the “life or death” token? Something each of us need to decide very personally or it could be a death of sorts. Death of our soul. Death of our sanity. When everything is a life and death matter that has the same qualifications of what matters most, it is a death.

When I think about this through my perspective, I’ve died a lot. I’ve made the error of selecting something and making it a priority or life and death transaction. Only to find out it was not what mattered in my life. Friends. Family. Faith in all that. Those intangibles matter. When everything else is stripped from you that you thought was, you’ll see it too.

I’m thankful and very grateful for the time I’ve had. Blessed even. This rare month long deep look into what matters most, has allowed me the perspective I now have. I will not take that for granted. You may be thinking right now, that job is everything. That it even comes before family. But, it doesn’t. You jobs will come, they will go.

What you find when all the dust settles is your closest friends, the family you have, is where you need to decide “life or death” in how you spend your time. Because they don’t care about what you do. They care about how you make them feel. The love. The laughter. The hard moments that only family can traverse with you to truly understand.

Really simple quote for you today. I find those to have the most waiting inside to unpack. Hope the week is treating you well wherever you’re reading this. And, I thank you!
