Day 326

Asim Akhtar,

10:14 PM

I go to sleep

With the chance that I might not wake up tomorrow

God has granted me a gift

There have been many before me

And there may be many after me

But I must do the things I ought to do

I can't waste any chances

I have one shot

If I miss it

I won't get another one

Thank you for this opportunity

I hope to not disappoint

I also know that one day will be my last

I write these logs on the off chance that they might be useful to you

Who are you?

I don't know kid

I don't know

One day I'll have my last log entry

One day I'll die

And if you're reading this, you're still alive

Don't waste your chance

If I wasted mine,


You'd only be reading this if I set out to do what should've been done a long while ago

That, or I messed up catastrophically somehow

Or maybe I'm still alive

You know, we have a cognitive bias to assume the entire world revolves around ourselves

We see from our eyes

I need to sleep

I hope I wake up enough times

Is this negative thinking?


I'm grateful for every second

Although I might not be grateful during every second

I know that I don't have enough time

Maybe you do

Maybe you've got more seconds than I have

Pick the highest thing you can possibly aim at

Then go higher

And higher

Then do it

Then aim higher

And don't stop

If not you, then who?

If not now, then when?
