What the death clock can teach me

August 28, 2013

I never thought about this as I toiled away in a dark corner of the library studying medical minutiae and memorizing biochemistry pathways.  I always knew what I’d be doing based on blocks of time.  I knew my 4 years of college will lead to 4 years of medical school and then residency…. and on an on and on.

 

Think about the death clock and see how it changes your perspective.
