Curious to your thoughts on those who have achieved longevity. Sitting here thinking about it, I wondered if making a goal of say, "living to 100" something you focus on each day might actually be counterproductive. I guess I'm looking more for opinions about whether these people who achieve longevity did so by having a will to do so or is it just a byproduct of years of cumulative behaviors that lead to it. Obviously there is a bit of luck in play as well.
I've been thinking about whether living long and well is truly as goal of mine, as I have stated numerous times. However, I've wondered if waking up each day and consciously trying to work toward that, instead of just living the best I can might actually hinder my chances.
Weird question, but curious to get some responses.
