Meditate On Your Mortality
“When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” — Dr. Johnson
Most people who were close to death, say that it changed their life. If they were given a second chance at life, they treated that time as a gift and wanted to enjoy it much more than before. Death doesn’t mean that life is pointless, but rather that it has a purpose.
When we are close to death, we don’t spend time on complaining or obsessing over trivialities. Instead, we think clearly, urgently, and with a right perspective and priorities. We don’t have to be at that point in our life to start acting in this way. We just need to remember we are mortal: Memento more.
