Extra Points – Running to Empty

14_02_DanCapJackRetouch_001This week’s focus point…Running to Empty

This weekend was quite uncommon. On Friday, I attended the funeral of a dear friend who passed away at 86 years old. A day later, I was at a celebration for a young lady turning 100 years old. As I keep nearing a milestone birthday at the end of this year, these events give me reason to pause and reflect on my life.Saturday night, I was watching the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony to cheer on from a distance a great Seattle Seahawk, Walter Jones. Just prior to Big Walt’s speech, another inductee gave a rousing oratory, which caught my attention based on the previous 48 hours. Aeneas Williams said that the greatest wealth in the world was not in Fort Knox, or in a bank. It was in a graveyard. The hundreds of people buried their that left the world with “gas in the tank.” He exclaimed that the goal for each of us should be to leave this world on “empty,” having maximized your life and your talents.

Sound familiar?

Captain Jack and I often extort you through our writings and videos to become “unleashed.” To discard those bonds that hold you within your own yard and maximize your skills and talents. However for me, to hear Mr. Williams tell it in his own way, at that moment, and for where I was, it was moving and powerful.

Bottom line ~ Get unleashed and run to “empty.” We only come around this way once and we have no idea when the ride stops. It makes the most sense to get your money’s worth, right? Start today.
