A Life Well Spent…

September 23, 2009

Navid Azadi, CEO of DealerON 1979-2009 - Automotive Digital Marketing

I learned the tragic news that a client/colleague/friend of mine had passed away this past Monday.  He was only 30 years old and so full of life.   Frankly, it is hard to fathom that someone so young and exuberant who was only just scratching the surface of his professional and life potential would leave us so soon.  Navid Azadi was a good man.   Maybe he knew his time here on earth would be limited because he seemed to pack so much into such a short period.  In the brief time we knew each other, I learned a lot from him and wanted to share these lessons so others can benefit from a life well spent:

There is so much more I could say about this exceptional human being.  Of course, no person is a saint or devoid of faults – we are human after all.   However, I do believe we all have a purpose and something to share in this world regardless of the time we may or may not have.  In fact, the lives of those that are unfortunately cut short can be even more instructive.  It was a privilege to have shared some of Navid’s journeys in life.  I am confident his spirit will live on through many people.  I wish you well on your own journey and hope you spend some time reflecting on the points above – they are lasting gifts from a life well spent.
