I remember reading in one of the Puritans, and I think it was Owen or Watson but I could be wrong, a quote about pondering one's own death. Or to meditate much on the day of your death, or words to that effect. At the time I thought it was rather morbid, but as I grow older I see the wisdom of that counsel. It is very similar to Edwards's Resolution, "9. Resolved, To think much, on all occasions, of my dying, and of the common circumstances which attend death." But it wasn't Edwards because at that time I was not familiar with his writings. Does anybody know the passage I am thinking about?
