Motivation is a Mac OS X screen saver inspired by Alex MacCaw's Motivation Chrome Extension. From Alex:

…screen with a counter showing your age incrementing in real time… It’s a simple tool, but it helps me think about perspective a bit more, which in turn helps me optimize my time.

You can configure your age once you picked it in Screen Saver Preferences in System Preferences.
