What I have achieved in 47 years?

How does my life compare to others my age?

I’m 47.

When I was born in the UK in 1973, my life expectancy was a little over 69 years if things continued as they were.

Thankfully, medical care has improved slightly since then, so those clever healthcare people have added a few more years to my life, and now I can expect to live to the ripe old age of 84.

That means I’m currently about 56% of the way through my life!

56%!!!
