“Three Bullet Points”

1] Compliment the one you love like it’s your first date. I heard that on the radio this morning and it’s good advice. They were talking about what men and women are “afraid to say.” We worry because we have an agenda. “What happens after I say something?” Rather you should concentrate on here and now – don’t worry about what happens after you give a compliment to your loved one.

2] We watched Edge of Tomorrow tonight. It reminded me of playing Call of Duty: in the beginning you concentrate on the here and now (not thinking of the agenda like above) and you get stuck in loops. Then after a while you don’t care and go straight for the end-game. Moral of the story: sometimes you die if you stop and smell the roses (or go for more points) so sometimes it’s better to finish the path set out in front of you – quickly before you get shot.

3] Philosophical point with rhetorical questions. In the end it doesn’t matter if you ignored agendas, smelled roses, or rushed to the finish line. When you’re gone will people that know you – hopefully there is more than one – say you did what you wanted to do (or were felt compelled to do)? or did you let life pass you by (or not try to do what you wanted)?
