How are you living your life? - Steve Jobs

In his commencement address to Stanford University in 2005, Apple founder Steve Jobs made the following statement. It pretty much explained why he has been so successful in his life.
“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.’ It made an impression on me, and for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something (@minute 9.10).”
How are you living your life? How do you want to be remembered? What will your loved ones say when you're gone?
