Make Your Homepage a Countdown Timer Until You Die

We have so much time in this life, and yours is running out, friend. This may sound intimidating, but it doesn’t have to – it can be motivating. Sometimes you just need a reminder that you need it to count. This tool customizes your Google Chrome homepage and any new blank tabs you open so that the clock slowly ticks to your demise.

Memento mori was a popular phrase among the Stoics. It means “remember that you are going to die,” but it is not sad. This saying is meant to remind you that you have limited time in this life, so you shouldn’t waste it. You must make a concerted effort to achieve your goals, spend time with people you really care about, and do good to others.

Memento Mori by @wimgz is the simplest reminder. In a practical sense, this is not very useful. All it does is countdown (with the ominous sound of a ticking clock if you will) and it doesn’t even bother to actually count down the days (because you might be gone in 60 years or tomorrow). But if the constant reminder that your time is running out helps you stay motivated, productive, and grounded, this is exactly what you need. Basically, this tool is the more fun digital equivalent of writing “memento mori” on a sticker and sticking it to your computer monitor. You can check it out on the links below.
