What would you do with 20% of the rest of your life?

A while back I figured out that if I lived to be 80 years old, I only had about 17,000 days left to live. The point being, of course, to make most of it. I told my wife about this, and last night she reminded me. "How many days left do you have now, 15,000?" I said, "No, it hasn't been that long.." We figured it out, I'd said that to her about 6 years ago--more than 2,000 days ago! I thought about that a little more. That's 18% of the rest of my life (when the rest of my life was 17,000 days long).

One must make the most of the time left.

I have added a counter to this blog, on the right side bar, as a reminder of how many days left I have. Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to turning 40 next year. As I see it, I've summited. I have no regrets for the past 40 years. I just have to make the most of the next..

If someone could tell you exactly when and how you were going to die, would you ask? I'm assuming, of course, that 80 is a hypothetical number based vaguely on statistics. :)

I figure that if I'm still alive in 2048, it's time to call it quits.
