The Grim Reaper Is Coming

Bryan Johnson is the tech-bro hitting the headlines. His motto… 

“Don’t Die.” 

A big ambition. 

And who knows about his products? 

I’ve not tried them. 

But I’m in for the health mission. 

And we may be able to hold back the tide for a while… maybe for a good long while… 

In the end, the Grim Reaper will inevitably call. 

He usually comes knocking at 79. 

That’s the average life expectancy for a man in Britain today.

(Unlucky if you live in Glasgow, knock 6 years off that.)

Now 79 sounds pretty good… 

But unless you’re a newborn, you’ve not got that much time. 

As I’m writing this I’m 41 years old.  

79 – 41 = 38. 

38 years left, barring any unexpected punches to the face.

Hmmm, that doesn’t sound quite as sweet. 

Yet, even the maths isn’t quite that good. 

See, they say…

… You will lose 32% to sleep. 

… You will lose 9% to trying to get to sleep. 

… You will lose 14% to watching TV social media and the like.

… And you will lose 3% years to eating.

Which is an eye-watering 58% of your time.  

And this rapidly brings my number down to 15.96 years.


Less than 16 years left. 

… And that’s before I’ve factored in any time for retirement. 

Now, your number may be more, it may be less. 

But whatever that number is for you, write it down and look at it. 


Just how much of what you’ve got left, do you want to spend…  

Doing stuff you don’t like?

Dealing with people you don’t like? 

Getting paid a figure you don’t like?

Now is the time to make some hard choices. 

The Grim Reaper is calling us all. 

And the question is this… 

How much longer do you want to continue as it is? 

How much longer do you want to tread water? 

How much more of the time you have left do you want to sacrifice?

It’s time to make your move. 

Until next time.
