Your life in weeks

The best gift you can ever give yourself is this 4,000-weeks poster. What is it? Well, it’s a long story and only Tim Urban can explain in an entertaining manner. But the gist is this — the poster has 4000 boxes corresponding to each week in the average 88-year lifespan. You simply fill out every box that you have already lived. The remaining is what you have left, if you’re lucky that is.

If you’re an optimist, go for the 100-years version. If not, the original should do just fine. Here’s how it looks like:

Creepy? Unsure about that. It’s your life, dammit! What’s so creepy about it? Unless, you are a creep!

Effective, yes! Just the kick in the pants you will need to push through procrastination and those ‘tough’ days. And yes, it’s a powerful reminder to enjoy every moment while focus on the things that matter the most.

Before you order though, I highly recommend you read this fantastic, life-changing (for me) piece by the one and only Tim Urban. It’s deep and will change your perspective. And perhaps your life. And so will the poster. I promise.

I ordered mine.
