You are very fortunate to be in a position to make that choice.

Of all the people I knew who died, I can't recall any of them who would not have chosen to live. They are dead anyway. Circumstances did not allow them a choice.


I don't know about "laying awake at night worrying", but I think it is entirely reasonable to be aware of what risks are and what (if anything) to do about them.

I know that some people go through life without ever thinking about potential problems, but I am a lot more comfortable when I have some predictable security in life. Not giving any thought to what might happen is actually MORE worrying than thinking about it.

( This should not be taken to mean that I think we need a "Bird Flu" forum, though. )

The most important number of all is the percentage of people who do something memorable. Or more specifically, to be remembered for. That is a much smaller number, but it is the one I am striving for.
