How to Get More Meaning In Your Life, in Moments

How many apps have you come to depend on? That offer you ease, convenience or welcome distraction?

Many, I’m guessing.

But what about an app that makes you live better? That offers you more meaning in your life?

Such apps are rare.

I was lucky enough that a client introduced me to such an app. She showed it to me and spoke of its positive impact on her. I was moved and intrigued.

It’s called 1 Second Everyday and it enables you to easily record a second of video each day and splice these  second-long recordings together. So at the end of a year you have a 365-second compilation video — that can trigger memories of that whole year. As its creator explains:

For over 3 years, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I’ve passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.                                               Cesar Kuriyama

I’m now using it too and it’s been two months. Personally, I am convinced that it is therapeutic without being a therapy app. And that it promotes Mindfulness without intending to be a Mindfulness app.

Cesar did his TED Talk about 1SE in 2012 (1,211,766 views and counting). He then ran a  Kickstarter campaign to fund development of the 1SE app. The campaign ended with over 11,281 backers and almost triple the target amount.

The app was launched early 2013 and ended up two spots behind Instagram that same day.

Look, it is different things to different people — but always positive. And not in an instant gratification, get happy kind of way.
