Do the math. It may change your life

untitledHow fast did yesterday go away?

How fast did the past 100 days slip by?

Say your age is 25

If you think you’ll live till 75, this means you have 18,000+ days left to live.

Having fun in your youth? You’ve got 5,000+ days till you hit 40.

Not sure when you might die? Who knows how many days you have left…

So. Out of all the days ahead of you… how many are you dedicating to being unhappy or uninspired?

Count your life in days… and maybe you’ll make today count 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Have been using the same concept to ‘remind’ myself not to waste time. Some people may think it’s a lill’ too much, but then it works… for me.

    Go SEACHANGE09! 😀 Random one there.

    Making it count, I’m reminded. tx 🙂

    With other words: you only have this one life and every second counts.

    Carpe Diem, Khailee. And as always, you inspire me. You and this amazing SEAChange YES2009 youth group are standing up and being counted. Wonderful.

    My motto in life is – “live each day like it were your last.” Worrying about what happens tomorrow or in the near future is not something I want to think about all the time. Nor what I did in the past. What happened already happened, and what will happen will come soon. I’m just enjoying my life one day at a time. It certainly is fun! 😉 Have a great life guys!

    I did the math, quit my 6-fig salary, begin a start-up without funding. Is it worth it? Well, life is short, you gotta try.

    Yeah, you’re right =) It reminds me to do something good, while I still have a long time being as a youth, to do goods for me, you, and the others =D Gotta quote this in my life diary 😉

    If you watch TV for 2 hours on a average day, and live until 75 years old, you’ll end up wasting total of 9 years of the time you’re awake in front of the box. You could take that same time and make it count:

    – become really really good in 10 different things
    – become a ridiculously good in 2-3 things
    – become a true grandmaster in one thing

    Or then, you could just keep staring at the box and think that it’s entertaining and that “it helps you to relax”

    That is really a lot of years, wow. I often chill in front of the box, but this makes me think. Maybe look for something else to relax……
