Question 19 // What can a mortician teach me about living? (feat. Jim Albinson)

Jim Albinson spent years working as a professional mortician but his creative endeavors span far beyond being "Boxed In” (*cough*… sorry… I had to) by that career. I sat down with Jim on his home patio over iced tea one late summer day to find out what I can learn from him about how to live a better life. 

In this conversation, we talk about:
- What’s it like to be a mortician?
- What happens to the human body after death?
-“People who have died are still with us, just not DYNAMICALLY WITH US"
-The most personalized funeral Jim has ever been apart of
-Not becoming obsolite in your life, career and faith
-The problem of binary thinking
-The importance of being the first best you
-“The illusion of emminence”
-The uses and purpose of fermaldihide
-How do we respond to loss in life?
-How the perception of scarcity impacts value

I’m so thankful that I don’t have to deal with sponsors. 

Otherwise, I would have to tell you to visit Guinness’ website HERE Otherwise, I’d be inclined to tell you that Guinness Draft (with it’s distinctive dark amber body and rich creamy head) is possibly God’s greatest gift to mankind and is the sole reason I’m thankful for being alive after it’s birth in 1759.

I’d also have to recommend that you to hire Narrate Films for your next video/film/music-video/photo booth/wedding photography/any photography needs and to visit their website HERE. Hell… they took the photos for this podcast and they turned out pretty bad ass if you ask me.
