The Things That Matter

Lisa Brennan-Jobs:

We spend our lives so much just trying to get comfortable… and I think that’s the last thing that matters to the soul.

On your deathbed, the last thing you might say is, “Maybe I didn’t love or I didn’t work, but I was comfortable.” I don’t think you’d say that.

What you want to know on your deathbed is nothing about comfort. It’s something like, “Did I love the people I loved? Did I really love the people I loved? And did I do the work that I felt meant to do? Not someone else’s work, but my work.”

And those two things don’t have anything to do with sheet thread count, or how comfortable you are, or how big your house is.
