The Unlived Life Is Not Worth Examining

Tom Suddes | November 15, 2010

We’ve all read and heard from those ancient Greek guys proclaiming “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

As a modern-day ‘Old Guy’, I think they had it backwards. For me,

“THE UNLIVED LIFE IS NOT WORTH EXAMINING.”

You can sit around contemplating your navel… or you can make stuff happen, screw up, succeed, etc.

You can ponder the meaning of life… or you can give life meaning.

Note: Here’s a great quote from a plaque in my workroom given to me by a very close friend:

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, “WOO HOO, what a ride!”
