Die Empty by Moe Abdou

The day I finished reading Todd Henry's latest book, Die Empty, I got a short tweet from @googleventures that simply read, "A tribute to entrepreneurs..."  It linked to a short, 90 second video celebrating those who live curiously, and leaving us with a wise reminder that, "when you're about to die, the only thing you'll regret are the things you haven't done."  

I paused for a moment, only to realize just how precious it is to live a purposeful life.  For me, its always been about people, contribution, and always contemplating this question.
