“Life is too short because we die”

A recurring theme here at smays.com is how quickly time –and life– passes. This XBox ad might be the last thing anyone needs to say on the subject. But I also like what Christopher Locke wrote in The Cluetrain Manifesto (I’m rereading for the third time):

“Life is too short for office politics, for busywork and pointless paper chases, for jumping through hoops and covering our asses, for trying to please, to not offend, for constantly struggling to achieve some ever-receding definition of success. Too short as well for worrying whether we bought the right suit, the right breakfast cereal, the right laptop computer, the right brand of underarm deodorant. Life is too short because we die.”
