What Are You Doing With Your Life? The Tail End

  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    The script was inspired by an old article from my friend Tim Urban, who runs “Wait but Why”, the best blog on the internet, make sure to check it out. waitbutwhy.com It’s so easy to get lost in your daily life: there are so many “urgent” and “annoying” things that you forget that actually every day is special, sort of. And even more so the days we have with friends and family. I know watching a video like this can hit pretty hard. But at least for me, the message it tries to convey does make me actually change my behavior. Reprioritize things. You know. Hope it had a similar effect for some of you. Also, if you want to track how many weeks off your life you have left or get a new perspective on this stuff, we’ve made a few posters you can check out. Getting something from our shop is the best way to support our channel. kgs.link/N3Ksfqvp In any case, call someone you haven’t called in a while today. And thank you for watching. - Philipp

    Totally not having an existential crisis in my brain rn Life is long- but the average makes it short. And it makes you dread the things that could happen to you- you think about it over and over and you get anxiety. That crush you have? You want to meet her and be with her, but any day now you could just- die. And she could be with someone else. And all of that comes crashing down in my head. I’m kinda mentally prepared for it after thinking such things over and over but like- yeah it’s some crazy stuff

    i'd love to buy a calendar of your life but shipping it to my country would be too expensive. Is there a way I can buy a virtual copy to print at home?

  • UHFStation1

    I'm 40. I can't remember my best or even most memories from before 25. And it is depressing to think that people over 90 often can't remember ever having parents themselves. I hope I die at 60 and go to an afterlife. Some place that lets me live the life I wanted to.

    kurzgesagt started out as a prospect channel and the tragedy is it get what it want. Now there is nothing to do anymore except posting meaningless video and let the ignorant and rubbish comments take over.

  • JackJuggernaut

    I didn’t learn anything new. I feel like y’all are just tryna give me anxiety and then pretend that you’re doing a good thing by calming me down or enlightening me afterward. Existential dread will hit us regardless, so maybe it’s better to let us cope and not draw our minds to it unnecessarily. Y’all are selling the disease and the cure at the same time.

      Just imagin what people in other countries go through because you have the rights to explore but don’t just sit there just to wait for happiness to bump over you again just find it in your heart and chase over that joy you want!

    • Acs Aaaa2
      Acs Aaaa2

      I understand that sounds like the wrong answer but just because you never tried you can not succeed. You can ignore the useless things what school taught you and find joy on the tinniest things of your life.
