I saw this video the other day.
I strongly disagree with that sentiment. If I could live forever, I would have done all the things. Right now, I have to constantly pick one thing over another. I have to prioritize. I abandon too many projects before even starting them, because I know that I simply don’t have the time to accomplish everything.
Sure, I would postpone stuff more often, but then I’d just do something else instead, because I’d get bored doing nothing. I’d use that downtime to go do that trip I never had the time to do. I‘d do all the professions. I have way too many interests to sit around doing nothing. I have 10,000 ideas every day, so I will never run out of things to do. The world will be evolving with me, so there will always be new things to try, new people to meet and new problems to solve.
I don’t know if it’s false modesty, lack of imagination or just differences in personality that make people say that they wouldn’t want to live forever. I know my personality and one lifetime is definitely too short for someone like me. Give me 50 lifetimes, at least.
