In 2004, Carroll Shelby was 80. We're watching a show on cars and were interviewing him. He said something that brought tears to my eyes.
"I've had a heart transplant and a kidney transplant. At 80, I wake up three times during the night with new ideas. At this point I don't care what I will be remembered for, I just want to be around to make them happen."
I want that tenacity now. This is a man who doesn't waste time only dreaming.
