Owning this secret knowledge, open not every person on Earth, you need to ask yourself a simple question: what I want to do in the allotted time?
And by asking this question it is necessary to live. Because in the words of Steve jobs, who worked almost to the end: "the thought of impending death is the best way to get rid of the illusion that you have something to lose."
Absolutely not is to ask yourself unproductive pessimistic questions: why me, what have I done, who is to blame? They have no answer.
Someone to start as a guide to action, can help the films made on the subject. A lot of these.
For example: "the Sea inside" with Javier Bardem and the Bleached Rudoy, "Sweet November" with Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron, "knocking on heaven's door" with Till Schweiger and Jan Josef Literam, "Now is the time" with Dakota fanning and Jeremy Irvine, "Stepmom" with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon, "Dallas buyers club" Matthew McConaughey, "Burning man" with Matthew Goode or "a woman goes to the doctor" with Caris van Houten and Barry Atsma.
Will the person looking for the answer to the question – "how to live, knowing that he will die soon" - the answer in art? In film, music, painting? Someone will find it. In any case, it will be possible to start from the idea that art is able to throw.
You can make a list of the various cases that, due to various circumstances, could not make a living "in the flow". As a teenage girl – the heroine of the film "the right time". Or great characters-the slobs from the film "to reach heavens".
After making this list, you must try to carry out all the items from it for exactly the allotted time. Only a list needs to be realistic so really nothing to regret in the final.
Or you can devote the rest of my life not yourself and loved ones. To after your death could live in peace and harmony with each other and with themselves. As did the heroine of Susan Sarandon from the movie "Stepmom".
Or not even close. Those for whom your death. Because, as a rule, people, living an ordinary routine life, don't often have to think about what is given to us.
If a person before dying realizes that he must not leave just like that, not looking for help, and he is ready to help remaining, that means he will do what I must. In a very different Hollywood films – "Sweet November" or "Dallas buyers club" it is about such assistance.
Sell everything and go traveling? Time to see penguins in their natural habitat? Rob a Bank? To give away all the money? To bequeath their organs to medical science? To jump with a parachute? To draw up a detailed will. Not to make any Testament? To lie down at the TV and review all of the movies and shows that you loved? To go to the hospice and help others while I still can?
The main thing is to remember that knowledge of impending death is unique. You're one of the chosen few, which is exactly, or almost exactly knows when. Therefore, your life – it's yours. And no one else.
