Carpe diem: question to ponder

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may" (Herrick) and "Had we but world enough, and time, ... / Thus, though we cannot make our sun / Stand still, yet we will make him run" (Marvell).

Carpe diem means "seize the day", "pluck the day", "catch the day," living life to the fullest. The question is: How do you define "living life to the fullest"?
