Dialectic Two-Step – How Can I Make Every Day Worth Living?

By Andrew Furst @a_furst
Dialectic Two-Step – How can I make every day worth living?Dialectic Two-Step  is an ongoing series of my thoughts on questions that come my way.

Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two. – Octavio Paz 


Question: How can I make every day worth living? I am 19 years old and working on my bachelor’s degree. I want to become IT entrepreneur. Can you suggest a way that I can live to not regret taking this path?

Response: I would turn the question around and suggest that you recognize everyday as being worth living. Adopt the attitude that you are responsible for appreciating it.  I am in technology. I’m entrepreneurial, work a  lot of hours, and have enjoyed being on the  cutting edge of the industry.  But I have a regular meditation practice, and I take time to notice the beauty and abundance that surrounds me. I have no regrets.

Make Every Day Worth Living?

You can’t make every day worth living, but you can enjoy  everyday because each one is precious.
