WATCH: What Really Matters at the End of Life?


TED Talk BJ Miller

It’s payday. You’re looking to bust out card and head off to the mall to shop for new clothes or to the nearest posh restaurant to have dinner and drinks with friends or maybe transferring a percentage of your pay to a savings account via your bank’s mobile app. It seems that no matter how hard we try to avoid it, no matter what we do, our lives are basically being run by the amount of money we have saved or will earn in the future.

This isn’t the case for everyone, we’re sure. But a majority of the population can attest to the fact that money does make the world go round (or at least spin for a limited amount of time on its axis) – UNFORTUNATELY. However, this isn’t the reason we all get up in the morning. We might have ourselves working hard for money almost every hour of our adult life but when it comes down to it, that’s not what really matters at the end of life, right?

So what does?
