“What is your number one hack for getting yourself motivated when things seem hopeless?”

I printed a life chart called “My Life in Weeks”, and it’s visible to me daily.

It contains a row of 52 dots, repeated 88 times downward (52 columns, 88 rows)

Each dot represents 1 week. So 52 dots represents 1 year.

The average lifespan for a Singaporean Male is 88 years old, so 88 rows.

Whenever each week passes, I would shade it.

In a way, it’s like counting to death.

Well, it depends on how you look at it, but 1 thing for sure you will realize how fast time is ticking and how “little” time you have left.

For me, that’s all the motivation in the world I need.
