Face Every Day Like Your Hair Was on Fire

I've written before that my late friend Robert Urich used to misquote a famous aphorism. Properly stated, it went like this: "We must seek enlightenment the way a man whose hair is on fire seeks a pond." In other words, head-first, full-on.

Robert's version, while twisted, has become of increasing importance to me. "Face every day," he used to say, "like your hair was on fire."

What he was talking about was passion.

  • Do you do something every day that gets you excited?
  • Do you face a stimulating challenge every day?
  • Do you have at least one daily "wow" moment?

If you don't, you may not be living life to the fullest. Your hair may not be on fire.

So join the "Hair Ablaze" club. Get out there and plunge in. Be enthusiastic. Live like your hair was on fire.

You'll be happier.
