leave the past behind, "Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it."

It just occurred to me today that finishing my most urgent project at work wouldn't be on my to do list. I would love to read some thoughts or stories.
...After reading some responses, it seems that most people would do what they always wanted to do and take care of things that they value most. But why wouldn't we do these things in the first place, regardless of how long we have left? I don't mean it as a rhetorical question - it would be interesting to read some thoughts.

Feb 1 2013: I would explore the ideas of why the last day of life comes with such a large to do list, why we need such reassurance to take with us to the after life, when all of our questions will be answered on the other side. So I would spend my day in peace, knowing my questions will be answered.
