LEARN TO LIVE
BY REMEMBERING TO DIE
Facing your mortality is the starting point for living a deliberate and purpose-driven life.
Comes to terms with death. Thereafter, anything is possible. - Albert Camus
why be mindful of your mortality?
Prioritizing What Matters - Recognizing our mortality helps us to prioritize what is truly important in our lives and cut out the things that don't matter.
Gratitude - Being aware of our limited time on earth can lead us to be more grateful for the present moment, our relationships, and the opportunities we have.
Increased Empathy - Facing our own mortality can help us develop greater empathy and understanding for others, as we recognize that we are all facing the same ultimate fate.
Living with Intention - When we know that our time is limited, we are more likely to live with intention, pursuing our passions and making the most of every day.
Sense of Purpose - Recognizing our mortality can give us a greater sense of purpose, motivating us to leave a meaningful impact on the world around us.
Improved Relationships - When we face our mortality, we tend to prioritize our relationships and invest in the people we love, leading to stronger, more fulfilling connections.
Greater Resilience - Understanding that life is finite can help us build greater resilience, allowing us to bounce back from setbacks and challenges with greater ease.
Less Fear of Failure - When we embrace our mortality, we are less afraid of failure, recognizing that taking risks and living life to the fullest is more important than avoiding mistakes.
Greater Acceptance - Accepting our own mortality can help us make peace with the inevitable and focus on the present moment rather than worrying about the future.
Deeper Spiritual Connection - For many, facing mortality can lead to a deeper spiritual connection, as we contemplate the meaning of life and the universe.

Hi! I'm D.S. Moss
HOW I CAN HELP
During the podcast renaissance of 2015, I created The Adventures of Memento Mori on a lark. I was just following my curiosity to see if the meaning of life would present itself by exploring death. The consequence of this deep meditation on impermanence was life-changing. After hundreds of interviews on the cosmos of death, a graduate degree in theology, and time spent as a Humanist Chaplain, I'm here to share with you what I've learned so that you can live the most deliberate life possible by practicing memento mori.
Featured Course: Ready7 Plan
End-Of-Life Planning with Ready7
The first step in making tomorrow count is to administratively Plan On Dying
LISTEN To the Overview
Plan. On. Dying.
Make tomorrow count by rising to the occasion today
Planning for your end-of-life is the most selfish selfless act you can do for your loved ones and with the Ready7 Plan you’ll be able to:
- Protect your family should you die
- Gain the knowledge to help prepare your loved ones for end-of-life
- Begin to live this life deliberately and with purpose.
I recommend viewing the Ready7 Plan as a “choose your own adventure.” Although death is humanity’s one common denominator, each of us has a unique relationship with it. You may find some parts easy while other parts may be more confronting. Others may have a completely different experience. All I ask is that you stick with it no matter the ease or challenge of each Phase. Remember, if you’re here the hardest part has already been done.
