Life's too short (2)

“Life’s too short.”

This was the favourite line of a former colleague when he tried to justify not doing something he did not want to do.

From finding it amusing at first, I gradually learned to see the wisdom of it. Today, I have even adopted it myself. Not for fending off tasks but the opposite. I realise that it is exactly because life is too short that things need to get done.
