You can’t take it with you

As if to reinforce for those of us who missed it with the demise of the late Kerry Packer last week, Maktoum bin Rashid al-Maktoum, Prime Minister of the UAE, passed away on the Gold Coast yesterday. Despite having a family fortune in the range of US$10 billion, he still died from a heart attack at the Versace.

Whenever someone passes, I like to contemplate the lessons that I can learn. In this case, one of the most striking messages is a very simple one:

You can’t take it with you…

So live this day as if it was your last… be mindful of what the message that your life is… because one day it will be.
