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.

  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    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

      How about we develop Nuclear topic further? After all, there is a solution to the problem of nuclear waste! Fast Neutron Reactors. For example, in Russia, we are building a new experimental fast-neutron nuclear plant, the first in the world with a lead coolant! The previous fast neutron reactors were with a Sodium coolant. This is a big step forward towards a closed nuclear cycle!

    Deep down, this is all so frightening, anxiety-inducing, and disquieting. Also, a bit tragic. The little music the video has as a soundtrack and the attitude of the narrator are out of place.

    damn bro i like the message that is in this video but after the talk with how me being a kid was the biggest opportunity to really spend time with my parents really hit me in a bad way. My mom had left when i was at a young age and lived in england most of my life so i was never able to see her. I recently got to visit her after 8 years and even though i know the amount of time i spent with her was the longest it will ever be this video really brought that thought to light even more. Great yet depressing video. I know compared to other people who had lost their parents permanently i have it lucky but i feel that not being able to be in her presence and hold her despite her still living hurts.
