The Days Are Long, But the Years Are Short.

A thoughtful reader sent me the link to a conversation between Arianna Huffington and Sheryl Sandberg, about Arianna Huffington's new book Thrive.  (To see an interview I did with Arianna Huffington, look here).

In the email, the reader said, "They talked about your story! 26 minutes in. "

Well, it's not 100% clear that, at minute 26, they were specifically referring to my story, The Years Are Short, but the description certainly fits. And of everything that I've ever written, that short video story -- with its single sentence, "The days are long, but the years are short" -- seems to resonate most deeply with people.

If you've never seen it, here's my one-minute video, The Years Are Short:


Here's the video of the conversation about Thrive, with the reference at minute 26:
