"Do something" is a special progress bar that shows in real time the elapsed percents of my life. The start date is of course my birth day, and the "death" date was estimated using the male life expectancy in France for 1986 (source : La Banque Mondiale).
I think this vision of time running is particularly motivating, even though some people may find it depressing.
