Memento Mori is a Latin word for ‘Remember you will die.’
In a world that is always moving, it can be easy to forget what is truly important. Memento Mori is a life calendar that helps remind us of the things that matter most. By taking a moment each day to reflect on our mortality, we are able to live each day with a greater sense of purpose.
This simple yet powerful practice can help us to better appreciate the gift of life and live our life to the fullest.
Lately, it seems that everywhere we look, we are bombarded with messages about how to live our best life. We are told to seize the day, make the most of every moment, and not take life for granted. And while all of this is good advice, it can be easy to forget that our time on this earth is limited. This is where the Memento Mori life calendar comes in.
Some of the greatest people that ever lived used this concept.
Steve Jobs said:
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.”
“Almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invetion of life. It’s life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.”
Knowing you are gonna die soon is one of the most powerful concepts that you can use to let go of the small things and focus on what truly matters. It teaches you to turn attention away from the distractions and focus on what truly matters.
“Let us prepare our minds as if we’d come to the very end of life.” Seneca would say, “Let us postpone nothing. Let us balance life’s books each day. … The one who puts the finishing touches on their life each day is never short of time.”
To some people, this might sound like a scary and awful idea. Who wants to think of death instead of enjoying life? But what if we shift our perspective? Embrace the truth that I’m gonna die eventually and reflect on it to live to our fullest.
As Buddha said:
“Of all the footprints, that of the elephant is supreme. Similarly, of all mindfulness meditation, that on death is supreme.”

You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think. - Marcus Aurelius
“If I had my life to live over again, I would form the habit of nightly composing myself to thoughts of death. I would practice, as it were, the remembrance of death. There is not another practice which so intensifies life. Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise. It should be part of the full expectancy of life.” - Muriel Spark
