The Yes I Kan Podcast Ep. 14: Living with the End in Mind with Dr. Kathy Zhang

How often do we take the time to reflect on what matters the most at the end of our lives?

Death is an incredibly difficult subject for most and is one that is not easy to talk or think about. We often stay focused on the present or reminisce on the past but how often do we take the time to reflect on what matters the most at the end of our lives? What we worry about today, will it be what is most important when we evaluate our lives as a whole? Today, Paul speaks with Dr. Kathy Zhang, a doctor in palliative care who works alongside death every day. In her journey, she’s learned powerful lessons that can change the way we live our lives and our viewpoint for what it means to create life worth living. They talk about the most frequent regrets she hears from her patients, how to walk the fine line of living in fear of death and having it motivate us, and how we create an extraordinary life by living with the end in mind.
