What is your life motto?

Here are some of the motivating answers.

Nothing Really Matters

[rebelmouse-image 18351408 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I like a chronologically based approach to life. When assessing whether or not it's worth caring about/getting angry about something, ask yourself a series of simple questions:

  • Will this matter in 5 minutes?
  • Will this matter in 5 days?
  • Will this matter in 5 years?

It's pretty easy to sort things that way.
