Within minutes of Kobe Bryant’s reported death, wikipedia was updated.
People were tweeting about him.
Talking about how tragic it is.
Musing on how precious life is.
While many people talk about it…
Kobe Lived It
Some time ago I wrote about something special that Kobe showed is inside us all—
I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, ‘My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.’ We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.
What’s so special about folks like Kobe is they have all the same foibles as the rest of us.
It’s just, they never let it hold them back.
They’re maniacally focused on what most matters to them, and go after it HARD every day.
How Are You Using Your 86,400?
How many people will spend a few days talking about Kobe.
Talking about how life is precious.
How quickly it can all end.
And then get back to wasting many of their precious 86,400 seconds every day?
Kobe would never waste precious seconds on the clock that way.
Video Warning: It’s Pretty Extreme
It’s extreme to ask yourself, how many seconds a day are you wasting your life?
To ask yourself, if this was your last year on the planet, what would you cut out?
150,000 people die every day—roughly 2 every second—so what makes us think this won’t be our unlucky day?
We’ve been wary of putting out this video coz I still try to hide my extreme…
But Kobe made me think fck it, this is how I strive to play the game of life.
And it seems to me that Kobe lived much the same way.
You’re either focused on what truly matters or wasting your precious 86,400 seconds on the clock.
