20,000 Days and Counting by Robert D. Smith is a quick read with some thought provoking ideas. How do we measure our time here on earth and determine our worth? As I sit here today, I've been alive exactly 18,036 days. Maybe that means I’m ahead of the curve. By God’s Grace I still have time to live each day to its fullest; to live abundantly. Perhaps this book can point me in that direction.
At the beginning of each chapter, there are quotes from people who have lived throughout the ages. I especially enjoyed one from a person who lived exactly 20,830 days: “Take care of the things you need to take care of today.” This is practical advice from Horace, a Roman poet who lived from December 8, 65 BC to November 27, 8 BC.; words that can be put to use many, many years later.
I think you’ll enjoy the way this book challenges you to eat dessert first, say yes, and ask yourself these two important questions … “What is important right now to you?” and “What is next for you?” Don't forget to go the website theRobertD.com to find out how many days you've been alive. It may spark you on to even greater things.
