Memento Mori

Story time

You can’t control death

Why do people do things they don’t want to do?

Where do you draw the line?

Assumption 1 — “I will live a long life”

Assumption 2 — “Today was guaranteed”

“I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory When’s it gonna get me?
In my sleep, seven feet ahead of me?
If I see it comin’, do I run or do I let it be?
Is it like a beat without a melody?
See, I never thought I’d live past twenty
Where I come from some get half as many
Ask anybody why we livin’ fast and we laugh, reach for a flask. We have to make this moment last, that’s plenty”

Risk based decisions

Conclusion

“You will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things that you don’t like doing. Which is stupid!

Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than to have a long life spent in a miserable way.”

— Alan Watts
