Discussion on: Whats on your desk?

I have a coin. On one side is written Memento Mori. On the other side is written You could leave life right now

I'm a student of the Stoic philosophy. This coin is always on my desk, where I can see it. When I'm procrastinating or not doing what I'm suppose to do, a look at the coin usually pulls me back. Kind of a 'Come on, get it together now'. Helps me quite a lot.

Man, I really want one but the shipping to the UK is huge. Always good to find a Ryan Holiday fan.

That's really motivating! A sort of work totem.
