"Let death be what takes us, not lack of imagination." BJ Miller.
I listened to this TED talk by BJ Miller a while back and had recently watched it again. It has an essential message about death and the process of dying as it relates to living life more fully.
It’s not a topic we often discuss nor is it a subject that we contemplate regularly. In this interview, BJ said, "We cannot solve for death, yet, but we can design for it."
He goes on to suggest that it is not death that we fear but the suffering or process of dying. The critical component is then not avoidance, because we cannot escape death, but instead lifestyle design.
In this episode, I explore my thoughts on this subject and why I think it’s one we should encourage more thought and conversation.
