Don’t lose sight of what’s most important

 

I just received news that a fellow shop owner has brain cancer and was told by the doctor he has 6 months to live. I will leave his identity unknown, for obvious reasons. He is the owner of a body shop in my town; a family man, a Vietnam Veteran and a hard worker. He took over the business from his father in the early 80s.

 

The business has been part of the community of over half a century. His father sent a lot of work my way when I first opened up and was a mentor to me. I was a young 25 year old kid, who thought he knew everything. He showed me the ropes, and I will never forget that. Now, his son, in his early 60s has cancer and is not expected to live. The relationship we had over the years was solid. We became business allies, and friends. It will be sad to see him go.

 

I write this post today as a reminder that life is precious. We sometimes focus on the things that, in the end, really don’t matter. Take time today and reflect on family, friends and life. Make the most out your time here on earth. Death is a part of life. Live each day as if it was your last.
