Long-term thinking

I’m a big fan of long-term thinking; after all, I’m very interested in anti-aging, long content, durable links, and so on. I think Peter Thiel nailed it with these quotes:

People always say they want to live every day as though it will be their last. I always have this contrasting view that I think I’d like to live every day as though it will go on for ever.

If we had an indefinite life span, we would continue to work and start great new projects, we would be very careful about how we treated the people around us because we would encounter them again.1

People always say you should live your life as if it were your last day. I think you should live your life as though it will go on for ever; that every day is so good that you don’t want it to end.2
