What would you do if you had one day left to live?

This is a question many have played with in their own mind I'm sure. Not a particularly happy one but it does bring to the surface the things we value most. Perhpas we might want to zone out get high and avoid the impending doom - perhaps the shock would send you spiralling. But if we could forget the leaving and the sadness bit and started doing - what would you do? And if these are the things you would and can do - will you do them tomorrow? What do you value and what are you capable of? And why in many instances do we put off what we would most like to do?

    Oct 7 2011: Philip, I would find a lawyer and prepare my WILL at first and will make my family understand how they will sustain after me. This exercise would give me time to be with my family as well as give me satisfaction of making them aware that without me even, they can have the same life. It will help me to be with them everytime.
