You’re Going to Die

You’re Going to Die

Just a reminder – you are going to die soon. Oh, and it’s 1:32pm.

I saw this really interesting article about a Kickstarter project for the Tikker Watch. The premise is simple – it’s a wristwatch that counts down how many years, months, hours, and minutes you have left to live. The hope is that the watch serves as a constant reminder to live your life to its fullest – or what I am calling a “perpetual perspective machine”.

It’s brilliant, really. Isn’t it funny how sometimes the simplest idea can have a huge impact on the way people live?

From TechCrunch: Tikker Is A Watch That Counts Down To Your Death, Because YOLO

P.S. Reminds me of the Justin Timberlake movie In Time.

    Get busy living or get busy dying. I had a friend send me the same link, except they said, “who in the world would want such a thing?!”. I replied — me. This is exactly the type of thing I would want because I like to be reminded to make every second count. She was baffled.

      100% agree! When I saw this, I knew people would think it was crazy but I immediately got it. I am always amazed by how people try to think of crazy, complex ideas to change the world – when often it’s the simple idea, an idea people can instantly grok, that makes the biggest impact.
