The Magic of reading obituary

Since reading ‘Show your work’ bu Austin Kleon, I have been following his suggestion on chapter 1.

‘Read obituary’ every morning before you start your day.

If you even try to find Obituary on google, you will notice there are so many of them. Some were so young. When I saw 1992-2021, 1983-2021 it was so so astonishing to suddenly realize it’s not just for old people.

Obituary is like the near death experience for all of us. Thinking about death makes you want to live very very well.

I live my life very well, i don’t waste it and I don’t bother with little things or people who are not worth it.

Try it. Read Obituary every morning for a few days, you will see what I mean.
