Don’t count the days; make the days count. (Muhammad Ali, late heavyweight boxing champion)
Whether it’s counting the days until vacation, the last day of school, or the beginning of retirement, it really is a waste of time. Even counting the days of your illness, recovery from an accident, or a family struggle, again, counting doesn’t help much. We would do much better, as Ali suggests, to make whatever days we have left days of worth and achievement.
