20,000 Days and Counting

20,000 Days and CountingLord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
    Remind me that my days are numbered—
    how fleeting my life is. – Psalm 39:4

For all my life I’ve struggled with procrastination. Putting things off until the last minute. Doing just enough to get by. Planning to do great things…tomorrow.

Does that sound familiar?

I don’t want to reach the end of my life with a boatload of things I should have, could have, would have done, but didn’t.

In my heart I echo that psalmist’s prayer. I want to live my life with an urgency and focus that reflects the brevity of my time here on earth, and the importance of each day.

Because today could be my last.

Why, then, haven’t I?

I think it’s safe to say – if you and I are asking ourselves that question, we need to change our mind-set.

20,000 Days and Counting is the place to start.

How many days have you been alive? How many would you guess?*

Today is day 16,592 for me.

Author Robert D. Smith reached his 20,000th day back in 2009. He celebrated that milestone by checking into a hotel. Over the next 48 hours, he planned his next 20,000 days. Out of that 48-hour session, 20,000 Days and Counting was born.

In this compact, easy-to-read manual, Smith shares a simple plan that, when applied, will have you living with purpose. Daily.

Our days are already numbered. When you come to the end of yours, what sort of life would you like to look back on?

Why not start that life today?

With the help of 20,000 Days and Counting, you can.

How many days have you been alive? Is the number more or less than you thought it would be?

*To find out how many days you have been alive, Robert D. Smith has provided a “life-calculator” at his site. Check it out!
