“You aren’t bothered, are you, because you weigh a certain amount and not twice as much? So why get worked up that you’ve been given a certain lifespan and not more? Just as you are satisfied with your normal weight, so you should be with the time you’ve been given.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.
How long do you expect to live? How much time do you have left? How long is a piece of string? Without knowing what time is left, why waste a moment of it? Know what is important to you and take (spend?) your time pursuing that.
