What Are You Doing With Your Life? The Tail End

Gain a new perspective on your life with our "Calendar \u0026 Timeline of Your Life Posters":

Sources \u0026 further reading:

Wrapping your mind around your life is pretty hard, because you are up to your neck in it. It's like trying to understand the ocean while learning how to swim. On most days you are busy just keeping your head above water. So it is not easy to figure out what to do with your life and how to spend your time.

There are a million distractions. Your family, friends and romantic partners, boring work, and exciting projects. Video games to play and books to read. And then there is your couch that somebody needs to lie on. It’s easy to get lost. So let us take a step back and take a look at your life from the outside.

  1. Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    29 napja

    The script was inspired by an old article from my friend Tim Urban, who runs “Wait but Why”, the best blog on the internet, make sure to check it out. waitbutwhy.com It’s so easy to get lost in your daily life: there are so many “urgent” and “annoying” things that you forget that actually every day is special, sort of. And even more so the days we have with friends and family. I know watching a video like this can hit pretty hard. But at least for me, the message it tries to convey does make me actually change my behavior. Reprioritize things. You know. Hope it had a similar effect for some of you. Also, if you want to track how many weeks off your life you have left or get a new perspective on this stuff, we’ve made a few posters you can check out. Getting something from our shop is the best way to support our channel. kgs.link/N3Ksfqvp In any case, call someone you haven’t called in a while today. And thank you for watching. - Philipp

    I didn’t learn anything new. I feel like y’all are just tryna give me anxiety and then pretend that you’re doing a good thing by calming me down or enlightening me afterward. Existential dread will hit us regardless, so maybe it’s better to let us cope and not draw our minds to it unnecessarily. Y’all are selling the disease and the cure at the same time.

    I honestly don’t understand why people say this is depressing. I tend to find it more frustrating than anything, knowing no one is thinking about this and just wasting insanely precious time focusing on absolute nonsense. Including myself a lot of the time. This should be focused on and contemplated a lot more in society. Hopefully help re-prioritize what we’re doing, elevate our collective consciousness and take full advantage of the miracle we’re given.

    This is a good example of a Racist view without realising it or stating it, many of the assumptions here are restricted to the western world which is a significant minority of the population but that significant majority of the economy which steals its well being from the rest of the world in every possible way, be it economic, social status or earth. You say people won't see their parents, do you realise that most Asians live with their parents for almost their entire life. Please consider the world before making over-arching statements about life itself, don't be blinded by your limited knowledge of life around you and generalise it for the entire world.

    I feel strange after watching this because i never thought about living upto 100 or enjoying life fully. I have my expectations about what to do in my future and what not but most of the time i just don't know what i want to do and i actually don't care What I want to do most is probably live according to me so these kinds of thing make me anxious and overthinking a lot
