Without a guarantee of success.
What is the point of making the maximum effort when you know that your days are numbered? What’s the point of making radical life-style changes when you know you’re dying? Because since we are born everyone, absolutely all, we are one step closer to death. What we do on this journey is what we call LIFE. Then to live well, the time I have spared to live, I do everything I can and by doing so, when death finds me I will know that I have lived my life making my best effort, with intent, with sense and with courage. And while doing so I live!
