I read a blog post today that suggested, as a way of gaining perspective and focus, that one occasionally spend time contemplating one's own death (mortality). When you get to the end of your life, what do you want the finished picture of your life to look like? What, in hindsight, will you wish you had focused on?

In light of your deepest goals and values, is there a need to refocus or redirect present, daily energies to what is most important to you?
