Create your legacy through work

Why knowing we will be dead soon makes our lives more meaningful
  • Steve Jobs' quote "We're here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise, why even be here?" as a call to live a purposeful life

  • The role of mortality in driving us to achieve and leave a legacy

  • How the tension between our symbolic and biological entities creates a fear of insignificance and drives us to find meaning through work and symbolic creations

  • The role of culture in providing meaning and helping us cope with the fear of death

  • The importance of finding a balance in harnessing our intrinsic motivation without getting overwhelmed

  • The benefits of accepting mortality and finding meaning in the present moment rather than trying to achieve immortality through our work.
