Got it! That makes more sense to me. I once did a personal development workshop that had us figure out the years, then number of hours (averaged out) that we’d have to live. It was amazing to see a finite number, and it had me be much more mindful of my time.
It left a lasting impact. Now, when I’m doubtful about doing something I ask myself, “Is this worth an hour of my time that I’ll never get back?” and the answer is always immediate. For me it seemed to act as a way of connecting to my intuition about what was best in the moment.
