Apply the lessons

Last week I started reading Ways of Dying, a book penned by South African award winning prolific author, Zakes Mda. (Book review coming soon). This book is quite a tale with lots of lessons.

Two major lessons I’ve learnt from this book are:

  • Live like it’s your last day on earth – do your best everyday.
  • Love like you’ve never been hurt.

These are life-long lessons that are actually principles to live by. I’d like to add one more:

  • Do what you love and love what you do – money shouldn’t be your motivation.

Nothing new really…. However, simply knowing these lessons is not enough. It’s all about applying the principles to our day to day life.
