Re: Is life ultimately a sinking ship?

Only if you think that way.

You and everyone around you will deteriorate and die. But that's just one of many inevitabilities that you just can't change.

The trick, I think, is to consider the short term. Enjoy your afternoon. Do whatever you are able to that makes you happy with your evening. Get up tomorrow and savour.. whatever you can.

Of course, you should plan for the long term.. don't overindulge, try to put something in your pension. But don't try to 'strategise' life as a game where the goal is to 'survive as long as possible with as much stuff as possible'... think of it as what you'll do this week that'll put a smile on your face.
