Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson says, “It is the knowledge that I am going to die that creates the focus that I bring to being alive. The urgency of accomplishment. The need to express love—now, not later.”

One tactic to remind yourself of death: read a daily obituary (hat tip to author Austin Kleon). Or consider displaying a life calendar—which reminds owners of the number of weeks left in an average lifespan.
