In praise of (semi) long-term thinking:
Why 30 years ahead?
A combination of the Lindy-mode of thinking (Nassim Taleb):
I am ~30 years old, and it thus makes sense for me to think ~30 years ahead.
Perhaps this is advice we can give teenagers:
If you are 18-20 years old, think about your life 20 years from now.
This is practical. 30 years from now I’ll only be ~60 years old. I will still be in excellent health, and will still have a 6-pack. I plan on dying at age 133; so I gotta think long-term.

Nothing will last forever. Nor *should* it last forever.
