Wanting: The Power of Mimetic Desire in Everyday Life, by Luke Burgis

Don’t take desires at face value. Find out where they lead. Sit with competing desires and project them into the future. …Pay close attention to your emotions and what’s going on inside your gut. The ultimate way to test desires—especially major life choices such as whether to marry someone or whether to quit your job and start a company—is to practice this…exercise but to do it while imagining yourself on your deathbed. Which choice leaves you more consoled? Which choice causes you more agitation? Steve Jobs…noted, “Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.” The deathbed is where unfulfilling desires are exposed. Transport yourself there now rather than waiting until later, when it might be too late.
