Facing Death

Facing Death

One universal fact is that we will die eventually, but most of us live as if we will live forever.

  • We forgo taking care of our health now, as we harbor an expectation that our strong body can keep us living for a long time.
  • We continue to luxuriate in our present gratification because we think there is still plenty of time to do something about fulfilling our goals, without noticing that our time gets shorter after each passing day.
  • We let our future self suffer by procrastinating now.

Are you willing to leave the world without giving it your all?
