字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント last week was pretty rough, a lot of things went wrong and I kinda felt extremely unmotivated. I even struggled to get up in the morning. however, I wasn't worried because one week in comparison to 4679 weeks is nothing. that's how many weeks I will live if I am going to witness my 90th birthday. But let's be honest, most of us won't make it to 90. because life expectancy in the US, for example, is just below 80 years (78.6 Years). But for some weird reason when you are in your 20s,30s or even 40s, you assume like you are going to live forever. but the truth is you would lucky even if you make it to your 80s. because if you would live in Greenland, you most likely won't even celebrate your 70th birthday (69.9) just because you live in the United States, you have an extra 450 weeks. but that's not the worst place to live in because in Senegal man on average don't make it past the 60, they live 19 years shorter than an average person in the United States. and in Chad man hardly celebrate their 50th birthday. But even 80 years isn't really as long as you might imagine. If all of your life would be summarised in little cubics then this is your entire life, but that's assuming that you are going to be one of the few individuals who are going to hit 100, but in reality, we will have to take out 2 cubics, that would be more accurate. how about we try to be a little bit more precise. How about we take a look at your life in months, if each circle is a full month, then this basically your entire life. This is when you are born, this is when you hit your 20, then 30, then finally 60. and the last 20 years of your life most probably aren't going to be as exciting as your 20s. 1-month might seems like a long time, but take a moment and think about how fast the last month has passed. In a blink of an eye! right/. How about the last week! Even faster?! How would your life look if we measure it in weeks? When you think about it that way, it seems like you have an infinite amount of weeks. So I am going to disappoint you. if, each raw represents an entire year. That's how many weeks it takes to turn a newborn into an 80-year-old. In the first 234 weeks, you are going to make your first steps and start walking. Your mom will be showing you different pictures to help you to speak and when you accidentally say daddy, your parents will go crazy! at a week 235th, you are going to go to school for the first time and will spend there over a decade. In your 445th week, you will be allowed to drive if you are in South Dakota, otherwise, you will have to wait another 55 weeks. Somewhere around there, you are going to meet your best friends and will fall in love for the first time. Falling in love when you are a naive little kid is way more romantic than when you grow up and realize that the world is a harsh place to be in. So if you are still there, enjoy that love because love isn't gonna be the same later in your life. Here you can vote, you are finally treated like an adult, by the way, you can start smoking now. Dozens of weeks later you enroll in college and that's only when you are allowed to legally drink! 78 weeks later, you will be at your graduating ceremony. Your dad most probably got married here, 15 weeks after his graduation. but you won't because times have changed and most people aren't in a rush to get married, at least in most of the developed world. However, even today, That's when on average most women have their first child. by 28, you will fall in love again but this time you will decide to marry her. if you find out this was a mistake, here is where you will get a divorce. Of course, you aren't going to stick to a single job your entire life, you will be changing your job every 229 weeks. But you can't be working your entire life. at 63 you will retire and if you are lucky you will see your grandchildren somewhere around there because as a man, you probably won't make it past the 76 and as a woman, you will live few more hundred weeks till you make it to this dot (81 years). I am sure that you have a lot of plans. Since you are watching this video, you don't simply want to live your life but at least achieve something. Maybe you want to start your own company, become a singer, a writer or the head of a giant corporation. You might be in your 20s maybe 30s and you believe that you still have time. But how do you think you are doing compared to other great people like Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein. Here Einstein published his theory of special relativity. Here Newton invents calculus. Here again, Einstein releases his famous formula and Here Newton develops his law of gravitation. The question is, where are you in this graph and what have you accomplished. Do not think for a moment that you still have the time, some of the most famous people you know didn't even make it to their 40s or 50s. Jim Morrison, the famous singer, and songwriter passed away here. Marilyn Monroe didn't even witness her 37th birthday, Martin Luther King passed away at his 39th birthday. JFK was shot here. Michael Jackson didn't even complete his 52nd year. Lincoln was assassinated here and steve jobs died out of cancer right there. In all honesty, you don't have as much time as you think you have. And even if you make it to your 100th birthday, the entire world will be talking about you. Currently, the eldest person in the world is Kane Tanaka. She is 116 years old. This means her birthday is closer to the death of Napoleon Bonaparte than to the 21st century. When she was a baby, there was still Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and the Russian empire and the world was a completely different place from what we know it today. She witnessed world war 1, the sinking of titanic, the Russian revolution, the great depression, World war 2. Sputnik, the moon landing and how the world though that the world will end in the year 2000 but it seems like it didn't. But what about you, what are you going to witness in your life, what are major events that are going to take place in your lifetime? You probably won't witness any world wars, hopefully! because of mutually assured distraction. but our generation will witness the first person to ever step on Martian soil and space travel will be something common among the rich. The ice in the arctic sea will completely vanish by 2037, In 2038: we will finally know what happened! The US National Archives will declassify the mystery of John F. Kennedy's assassination. 2050 - the global population most likely hit 10 billion and together with global warming, we will witness the biggest refugee crises in history. 83 percent of the amazon rain forest will be gone by 2100 and hundreds of species of birds will be extinct. somewhere around that period, the internet will be in your contact lenses. You will be able to download any movie, song, Web site, or piece of information off the Internet directly onto you Internet-enabled contact lenses. Chances that you will witness all of this are quite good. Life expectancy was just under 47 years in 1900 and now in 2019, it has reached 80, that's 40 years longer, we almost doubled it. so if we the tech keeps growing at its current rate, you probably will live to your 100th birthday and will witness all the technological progress that will happen till then. But regardless of how many years you live. 80, 100, 120, Eventually there will be an end and your 100 years that seems long is in literally nothing compare to the age of humanity which is 200K years. but life exists on our planet for 3.5 billion years, however, the planet itself is 4.5 billion years old. how long are 100 years compare to 4.5 billion years? The universe itself has been in existence for much longer, 13.8 billion years. and no matter how long you are going to live. the planet is going to exist for billions of years after you die and one day it's going to explode and vanish from existence. In fact, if you think about our planet is absolutely nothing compared to the hundreds of billions of stars that are in our galaxy and the observable universe is filled with such galaxies that are even bigger. in the middle of billions of years and unbelievable scale of the universe, you are blessed with 80 years of existence once and only once. Every second that passes by is never is going to be back. whether your startup failed or you broke up with your girlfriend. Nothing really matters because time doesn't care it's not going to wait for you nor will it understand your midlife crises. You are going to die and turn into dust and no one would ever care about you. Every time you feel unmotivated, frustrated, anxious or just angry that life isn't treating you fair. take a look at your watch! you have got 42 million minutes and if you are 25, you only have 34 million minutes left and every minute that is passing is never going to be back. And they are going to pass as fast as your last 13 million minutes. You don't have much time left! what are you going to do?!
