Monday Motivation: The Clock is Ticking
Monday Motivation, 6.25.18
Written by: Mike Goleski
Every Monday, The Rogers-Long Team meets for one of its two weekly meetings. The Monday meeting always ends with “Monday Motivation” in which a few minutes are spent listening to one team member presenting a quote, a quick reading from a book, a scene from a movie, or anything else they find motivating to provide a “spark” to the whole team on a Monday morning.
The clock is ticking…
My wife sent me a link to a financial advisor with a different story. I read the link and it was about a 25 year old man who had cancer. After he recovered from his cancer he would ask all of his clients three questions. Here are those questions…
1.) Imagine you have more money than you will ever need. How would you live your life? What would you do tomorrow?
2.) What if a Doctor told you that you have five to ten years to live (while feeling healthy), what would you do with your time?
3.) What if a Doctor told you that you have one or two days to live. What did you miss? What do you regret?
Three interesting questions because most of us think we are invincible and don’t take notice of time. The average person lives to the age of 77-80. Take 5-10 minutes and answer these questions. Regret is a word that is not in my vocabulary! Not because I have regret because I am who I am because of the decisions I’ve made up until today. My family, my friends and my stories. Sure it would be nice to have more money. Travel more maybe even a few more toys. But in the long run it’s family and friends.
So take it from a 55 year old man. Take advantage of every minute of every day. Don’t be afraid to tell someone you love them. Let your Mom and Dad know how much they mean to you. Pick up the phone and call a friend, coach or someone you’ve been meaning to call.

Mike Goleski, a Realtor with The Rogers-Long Team, started selling real estate in 1999. The RLT was thrilled to welcome Mike to the team in February of 2018 due to his competitive edge and disciplined attitude, which he learned from serving 6 years in the US NAVY as a SeaBee. In his spare time, you can find Mike on the golf course or even behind home plate umpiring an NCAA baseball game (you read that right!).
