Life is fleeting.
Time is our most precious resource. It is the one thing we can never get back once it’s gone.
Consider this: if you are lucky to live to be 90 years old1, you’ll have only 32,872 days to spend on this earth.
But the real question is not how many days we’re allotted, it’s how many we have left. If you’re in your early 20s, you may have 22,500 days remaining. And if you’re in your early 40s, that number might be closer to 15,000.
As you think about those numbers, ask yourself: How am I spending my days? Are you living the life you want to live, or is it time to start designing a life that truly aligns with your values and passions?
In the end, time is our most valuable commodity. Life is short, and it’s up to us to design it in a way that makes us truly happy and fulfilled.
Carpe diem, my friends. Seize the day and make the most of every single moment. Because, before you know it, the clock will run out.
The world average age of death is 72 years (81 years in the European Union, 77 years within the US).↩︎
