Being aware that our life could end at any time would help us because every day would become more precious. The more we become mired in the small and insignificant, the less we are in tune with a mindset which allows us to prioritize. It's not that we want to be morbid but rather determine whether the present focus of our attention will carry much weight when reflected upon on our death bed.

I don't imagine that the unfinished work project or being passed up for that promotion will mean all that much. But in the heat of the moment we fail to have perspective and so we waste time and energy; something I have been as guilty of as anyone else.
