About This Project
The inspiration for this project comes from In Time and the Memento Mori Life Calendar, with the goal of providing a sobering perspective on the finite nature of our existence.
Time is a relentless force that moves forward without mercy or compromise, and it is this reminder that our days are numbered that makes every moment of our lives precious. After all, if something were eternal, it would lose all value. We hope that this project will urge individuals to make the most of their time while they still have it.
Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.
- Harvey Mackay
In Time is a 2011 science fiction film set in a future society where people stop aging at 25 and have to buy time to live. Time has become the most valuable currency and is used to pay for everything, including food, shelter and even more time. The lifespan timer on their forearm indicates the time they have left to live.
Memento Mori Life CalendarFrom Stoic Reflection
"Memento Mori" is a Latin phrase that translates to "Remember you will die." While it may seem harsh, this message serves as a powerful reminder of the limited time we have in this life.
The calendar, which represents each week with a square and each row with 52 squares that represents a year, allows individuals to mark the weeks they have lived. The calendar assumes a lifespan of 80 years, although the worldwide average human life expectancy is 73 years, it varies across different continents. Despite advancements in technology and medicine, there will always be a limit to our time on earth.
How to use it?
The timer is formatted as it was in the movie. And the calendar works exactly the same as the handwritten one. The only difference is that you can also provide your expected lifespan.
The In Time Life Calendar is a reminder tool that automatically fills in your remaining lifespan once you provide your birth date and expected lifespan. The calendar updates in real-time, so you never have to refresh the page to see the changes.
This tool serves as a powerful reminder to make the most of the time we have and to live our lives to the fullest. Whenever you find yourself feeling stuck or wasting time, take a glance at the calendar and ask yourself, "Is this moment worth letting slip away?" Use the In Time Life Calendar as a tool to stay motivated and make the most of every precious moment."
Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much can be done if we are always doing.
