“Your life is not a countdown to your death, but a stepping stone for the lives that will live after you. Squander today, and you will find yourself useless tomorrow.”
― A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar
Countdown timers tell a story to each visitor. A simple and quick reminder, that “tempus fugit” – a Latin phrase, translated into English as “time flies”. There are many words, that add a sublime hint to urgency, and there are many in your face affirmations, that it is limited and disappeared with each second. Yet, the simplest visual representation is the traditional countdown timer. Now, that one exploits urgency in visitors.
