On living a life that matters

"When it's over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. When it is over, I don't want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. I don't want to end up simply having visited this world."
Mary Oliver
This reminds me of Steve Jobs's wish to leave a ding in the universe. It isn't about passing through. It's about leaving a mark. So what's your mark going to be?
