Consider Your Death

Let the inevitability of your death motivate you to consciously and deliberately use the finite life-time you've got left.

From my long tweet to a twitter friend
May I suggest that you consider your death. Pretend that in 75 (or any number you choose) years you will be dead. Pretend that you have 75 (or any number you choose) years more to live. What do you want to do? What do you want to have? Where do you want to be? WHAT WILL THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE BE? Consider that, as you imagine it, as you would like it to be. Write it down. That's what I suggest.

I see myself as optimally fit and laughing...living in a household self sufficient in food, water & electricity...premium internet access...in fertile mountains with a view of the sea...I'll re-visit and revise this post at regular intervals.
