When I open up a new window in google, I see this:
…an amazing photo with the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds counting down towards the day that I will die. It’s only an estimate of course, based on some answers I gave and average life expectancies but it’s probably not too far off.
Introducing Death Clock! A fantastic extension for chrome available for free in the chrome web store!
Seeing this countdown when I open the computer is powerful stuff. It might seem morbid to be reminded of your death so often but I find really helps me focus on what’s important. It makes me deeply appreciate the moments I have left and this is THE way to avoid things like Facebook.
They even change the picture every time you open a new page, so you always notice it…
Download it and prepare yourself for some heavy duty motivation!
