US Life Expectancy, 77 Years

Based on 2007 data, the average US life expectancy is 77 years. It takes on a different meaning when broken down:
  • 28,105 days;
  • 674,520 hours;
  • 40,471,200 minutes; or
  • 2,428,272,000 seconds.
I came across this power numerical representation in the book, So Grows The Tree: Creating an Ethical Will by Jo Kline Cebuhar, J.D.

Reading this makes you think twice about doing things you really do not love. It also underscores the importance of taking control, and putting wishes on paper. Time flies.
