was a rather scandalous (at first glance) tip I received once.
As a part of my morning mojo, I typically write down 3 things I would like to stay true to or ‘be’ if I actually did ‘die by midnight’.
(Of course, I wouldn’t be at work if I knew I was dying by midnight.. but it’s not like we’re told in real life either)
While I never did think the thought was morbid, I am definitely seeing the benefits. It is a sub conscious remind to myself to live every day as if it were my last. And my typical daily ‘wishes’ are to be ‘positive’, ‘happy’, ‘smiling’ and to be ‘productive’ and do great work.
And of course, I realize I’m glad to be able to write my wishes when I’m up the next day. I thought of this today.. as over time, the exercise had become sub conscious. And I realized I am very thankful for life.
What would you want to ‘do’ or ‘be’ if you didn’t have time left? There definitely wouldn’t be place for sadness, anger, disappointment et al.
‘Die Daily’ – a more powerful tip in hindsight.
