    Wrapping your mind around your life is pretty hard, because you are up to your neck in it. It's like trying to understand the ocean while learning how to swim. On most days you are busy just keeping your head above water. So it is not easy to figure out what to do with your life and how to spend your time.

    There are a million distractions. Your family, friends and romantic partners, boring work, and exciting projects. Video games to play and books to read. And then there is your couch that somebody needs to lie on. It’s easy to get lost. So let us take a step back and take a look at your life from the outside.

    1. 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

      5. Kopie

        Cheap trick: start working at the age of 10, get married at 15, retire at 30. More time for you. That's what my grandpa and grandma did. Didn't go to school, just inherited their families businesses, saved money and found love at an early age. They're still alive today, grandpa 59 and grandma 58. They married early because of the civil war in my country, they were afraid they won't be able to survive long, the civil war was just 3 months long lol.

      This video made me depressed, shouldnt even watch it

    20. Jacq Qulen

      I felt weirdly empty. Hopeless and I feel like running out of time then I watch this video. Summarise everything perfectly.

    21. Kristine

      Oh how I miss the Hippie era. What a boring much too calculated lifestyle this is. Flower Power you can’t calculate in advance is what I am looking for. You still have to wonder how many daysies the garden will have next year 💐✨💐… and of course 🕊🤍🦢.

    22. insight

      aye bruh what the fuck was this video, why you make me depressed for 8 minutes then give 5 words to motivate me

    23. GenericWall

      i never felt so many emotions in this video 😓

    24. Anamika Nath

      I feel strange after watching this because i never thought about living upto 100 or enjoying life fully. I have my expectations about what to do in my future and what not but most of the time i just don't know what i want to do and i actually don't care What I want to do most is probably live according to me so these kinds of thing make me anxious and overthinking a lot

    37. ramon plutarque

      Wtf Kurzgesagt

    38. Hellion Shark

      No matter how many weeks you give me up there, 5200, 50200 It doesn't matter - will always be a loser. The longer I live, the more I just want to kill myself and be done with this shit. I've seen what my life has to offer - it's bullshit. Why would I do all this shit - it's all pointless. Whether I die today or tomorrow or 50 years from now, the only difference is I will consume more entertainment media better people than I had created. All I do is live for other people who think they will miss me and see myself as something temporary. So what if I do hobbies, man - It's all I do, I still have no life - If my entire existence was erased, nothing would change for people. All that awaits me is corporate slavery, deterioration of my body and mind, and if I am fortunate death before I am bedridden or can't remember how to wipe my own ass. In the meantime my parents will die, some of my friends maybe, if they haven't abandoned me already, and the overall situation in the world is just gonna get worse. Then it will be my turn - probably with no one to even handle my funeral and with no trace left behind. Maybe a neighbor will find my dead body when it starts stinking too much. But I don't care, cause finally I will be free. Finally, there will be some fucking silence. people are scared of the nothingness of death, but it's so ridiculously tempting for me. I kinda wish I was one of the people covid ended so I wouldn't have to do the work myself. It's not death that scares me, it's how much torture it will be to get there. Fuck life. When I think of my future, I imagine a grandma putting a bullet through her head wishing she did it sooner. Every story needs someone to lose so others can win. It's about time some of us realize we aren't the fucking main character. We are barely even in the fucking movie. Don't throw hobbies my way thinking you can band-aid a sinking boat. Warhammer figures cannot fix a broken brain. Or a broken world. What matters to me? What's the point in even wondering when I am never gonna get more than this shit anyway.

    39. Ygor Souza

      Guys, you got me thinking about how beautiful this whole trip we call life is. I type this with teary eyes and a deep feeling of thankfulness towards your work.

    56. Thermite / Xenon

      man you're gonna make me cry.

    57. Zach M.

      I’m 18 and know I need to be thinking about and making plans for the future, but I’m struck with so much indecision. There are so many options and sometimes I can’t just make a decision for fear it’s the wrong one. I don’t like looking back and kicking myself for not seizing the opportunities presented to me. Ending up missing an opportunity because I sat idle is an awful feeling. It’s easy to say fuck it and make small decisions easily, but with long term impactful decisions it’s wildly hard to settle on a choice. Life’s short and we’re supposed to take advantage of the time we’re given, but because life’s so short, the choices seem so impactful. I enjoy my life right now but I’m anxious about the future. Hopefully I’ll be able to continue enjoying life regardless of my situation, but I don’t want to have to pay for complacency.

    58. Muhammad Faza Fauzan Chamdany

      My granpa's age is 100 year old and he died when he turn 101 year old

    59. Ahmed Manhy

      It's not true that our death occurs due to some kinda rolling dice.... Where is god,who decides each one's time of death,then. It's not a matter of luck and it's never been like that. I know you may say that it's just probability but it's not, every one has the same probability to die now even the one who is drowning compared to one who is watching this video right now. And thank you😊

      1. Dexter E

        It doesn't matter if the dice is roled by the universe or if it is a decision from god. What matters is the fact that we don't know when we will die.

      good video but why make me so sad

    78. Marlon Gardrat

      Life is a really complex thing . Some of us seen or did things they theorically shouldn't . Growing up as an adolescent then an adult this make us perceive ourselves differently therefore others and the world. I've felt separated from so called normal people and had to make hard decisions sacrificing important development things to protect myself or others from things we shouldn't see or experience. This applies for a lotof people as one's life cannot really be standardized as events occurs somewhat dice rolled by destiny or whatever we call it. Our choices, our different wah of thi king, our level of awakening and thoughts clarity along o'e's life makes all the difference in the perception of the world the decision making process on an individual, on one's motives. We can also achieve states of consciousness that permit us to take so much distance on our lives that we can assemble others perceptions, compare knowledge, and views about what is life or matter, or universe and its goal. Is there a goal to existence

      1. Marlon Gardrat

        -> is there a goal for existence apart from existing ? Survive ? Persist ? Do, not doing anything, one must decide that is freedom, we are made of stardust and beings of our species gave us limited choices when we can just be ourselves or even better know ourselves, evolving. Evolving may be one of life goals but what needs to be evolved ? Our personal quality of livi g ? Thinking ? Level of consciousness ? Of understanding ? Of respect on other beings and conscious materials ? Maybe my speech is confusing but what I tell you is what you do doesn't define you, nor your identity is not something unmovable, at contrary it's a fluid, life's a fluid, earth is a fluid, universe, energy, thought, matter. It doesn't matter it flows, it shouldn't be given any goal nor fixed definition therefore you don't need anything asuch as you do need everything,. Paradoxs makes life tasty human nature and universe are paradoxs that make the beauty of the thing. Therefore there is no past, no future no regrets. Be yourself trust yourself , learn to recognize beauty in existence and paradox, do whatever you want I could die a second after posting this I'd be okay with it. Be like water my friends

      Something thats scary to think about is theres a very large chance the universe rolled a critical failure for some people just days or weeks after they watched this video.

    93. Erhan Findik

      This was pretty depressing and overwhelming. I have already been struggling to live my life. Although I know that some day I am going to do something or see someone for the last time, hearing this from this video made me feel like fuck "life", what's the point !

      Is there a way to read this whole thing? Instead of listenin to it

    96. kanimo24

      It didnt used to be this way tho. People used to live in tight knit communities with their parents, siblings and friends for their entire lives before industrialization, which was both a blessing and a huge curse for humanity
