There is no reason not to follow your heart

I just ran across this quote in a document on my desktop. It reminds me of why I’m planting a church instead of living a “normal” life or instead of waiting until my kids are out of college.

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart…Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

–Steve Jobs, June 2005 @ Stanford
