MYSTERIES OF LIFE

Life's finiteness and finality

Having trouble resisting the urge to slack off? It might help to remember these words of Victor Frankl, founder of one of the Vienna schools of psychology:

``Live as if you were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now!'' It seems that there is nothing that would stimulate a man's sense of responsible ness more than this maxim, which invites him to imagine first that the present is past and, second, that the past may yet be changed and amended. Such a precept confronts him with life's finiteness as well as the finality of what he makes out of both his life and himself.

--Victor Frankl, "Logotherapy in a Nutshell",
Man's Search for Meaning.
