New life motto

My life motto has always been something along the lines of ‘Why do something today that can easily be done tomorrow?’.

This motto extends to everything and is not time-dependent. Why do something now that I can put off for 5 minutes?

However, I was reading a book last night that I have had on my shelf for years and have never read called What Every Kid Wished Their Parents Knew…and Vice Versa by Rob and Lloyd Parsons. In it they have a quote from a 15 year old boy called Tom (page 41). The quote goes like this:

“I believe that you should live every day as if it’s your last, which is why I don’t have any clean laundry because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?”

Priceless! I am trying to memorize it for use in all situations!

The book’s not a bad read. Probably better if you’re English rather than American because it uses some English terminology but it’s not a bad book all the same.
