There are two things that don’t lie: Death and Time.
When you know you are dying, your priorities and thoughts become clearer. Procrastination disappears. To-do list becomes shorter. Unimportant things become unimportant.
Wrote a poem or an article? Come back to it after two weeks. It will become clearer which part of the writing needs a rewrite. Time is your best friend here.
In front of Death and Time, things only get clearer.
