The Shot Clock of Life

When you’re a kid, you never think about tomorrow. Because you have a seemingly endless string of days ahead of you, you take tomorrow for granted.

You put things off.  You're not really aware of the shot clock of life.

But as you get older, you begin to become more aware that there isn’t always going to be a tomorrow. It’s not like you believe there will be no tomorrow; it’s more like you understand and appreciate today even more so.

You begin to discover the shot clock of life.

This gives you a sense of urgency.

You realize that you can’t put the important things off until tomorrow and if you want to live the life you want, you have to devote some time to your dreams and goals today and every single day.

Are you doing just that?  Are you envisioning how you will achieve your life goals and working towards those goals; even if it’s doing just one or two things to make moves towards those goals?

Making a few moves like that, every day, is like a basketball team running a strategic half-court offense to set up a good shot attempt.

Failing to devote some time every day to your ambitions is like waiting for a three-point bomb to bail you out at the last moment.

How often do you think about the shot clock of life?

Because the truth of the matter is, you're not a kid anymore.


  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

  • Hi Brandon! Very well put, sometimes we tend to forget whether willingly or not just how fast our lives are moving forward, time flies by and we feel as though we haven’t done enough. Helen and I were at the WBC event at the Marriot featuring Derek Jeter, amazing man! The event was a success for sure, Helen was in heaven!
