There’s a quote from Titanic when Jack Dawson is dining with the rich folks from First Class and they all raise a toast to him. “I figure life’s a gift, and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you, to make each day count.”
Amy Richardson has more on the subject with the YPs of Augusta who have learned to make each minute count in networking.
