What are your chances of dying this year?

The best business schools drill it into aspiring entrepreneurs and executives to never look down!  Onward and upward! That’s your motto, too, right?

But don’t you ever wonder, even just a tiny little bit, just how or when it might all catch up to you?

What are the chances the Grim Reaper could come nipping at your heels this year?

Ok, so maybe it’s not the most lively topic. But it’s going to happen to all of us. C’mon, you’re not even a little curious about your odds?

Everyone is.

It was with that thought in mind that a team of Ph.Ds at Carnegie Mellon University developed a Web site called DeathRiskRankings.org.

DeathRiskRankings.org calculates your risk of dying in the next year and allows you to compare that risk to others.

Still not sure you want to know? (You’re probably wondering what this item is even doing in the “Lifestyle” section anyway.)

OK, what if what you learn actually offers you an upper hand on the competition? Is it worth a try then?

DeathRiskRankings.org will help you get started on your research with an easy-to-follow tutorial.

From there, it’s a cinch to calculate the risk of dying using MicroMorts. Don’t know what a MicroMort is? Visit the site for a revealing explanation.

Oh, and just to end this on an up-note: One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it was worth watching!!
