Don't Burn The Day Away

Someone once waxed poetically about the meaning of the great Dave Matthews song called Pig. This conversation inspired a debate about life and what our obligations are to society.

I was reflecting on that four year old conversation while on my work today, and I came up with some questions to mull over. Feel free to add your own.

Am I doing anything to make this world better?
Am I taking steps to be healthy?
Am I drinking my milk?
What community organizations need my talents?
Is there something on my to-do list that I'm avoiding?
Am I lacing on the sneakers and getting my cardio?
When was the last time I talked to God?
Which trivial troubles are taking a toll on my positive energy?
Is there something that deserves more of my attention?
What negative forces are at work in my world?
What can I do to feed my creative streak?
Will I leave a positive impression on this world when I'm gone?
