Keep Fighting

I just found out that one of my dear mentors had cancer twice last year and was given 30 days to live in the second case. He survived and is now thriving. Towards the end of our conversation, I remarked at how well he sounded and asked how he survived those challenging times. He told me he simply kept fighting.

And what to fight for? In his case, the goal was to help as many people as he can, including me.

Here are some action items for you:

  • Don’t quit.
  • Keep fighting. Simply not quitting is not good enough.
  • Figure out how to help out as many people as you can.
  • Reach out to the people who you care about more often.


  1. "reach out to the people you care about *more often*"
    — this is one i constantly try to uphold. it's difficult to do it as much as you should/want to, but it's rewarding as hell when you follow through on just one instance of outreach/communication.
