In the final piece of the four new prints I got from Hugh MacLeod‘s linchpin series, this one turned out to be my favorite one of all.

To me, this piece brings it all together. If you look back over the past four days, you’ll see that each peice of art tends to bring us to this last and super important message from Hugh.

life is too short not to do something that matters – linchpin (click here for a better look at the print)

I love this art. It’s inspirational. It’s motivational. It’s a constant reminder. It’s always staring at me – leaving me nowhere to hide.

Here’s what Hugh has to say about it:

“Life is too short not to do something that matters, not to become a ‘Linchpin’. I know it, you know it, we all know it, so let’s stop futzin’ around and get on with it”. Like Seth says, “Decide.”

I’m not sure there is much more  to say beyond that. Maybe there’s a little…

Life is too damn short. Before you know it, you’ll wake up, or not, in a nursing home (if you’re lucky).

It’s inevitable. So why are you running around like a chicken with your head cut-off trying to acquire more stuff?

Why are you running the rat race?

Why are you spending another day doing something that makes you unhappy?

Make the decision and make it right now. Life’s too damn short my friends. Do something that matters. That’s the secret.

What are you waiting for?
