    This graph says that people with little time left, say, old people, have little potential. The caption suggests that you think otherwise.

    I know everybody’s a critic but I think this graph would read better if the “potential” and “time left” were switched to the other axis. It seems like a pessimistic graph yet the line moves up, which is kind of symbolic of optimism… Wait, no, maybe that doesn’t solve anything. Nevermind. Maybe, the issue is that “time left” is increasing from left to right on the graph when timelines almost always run left to right from past to future. Conceptually as we move from left to right you might naturally imagine “time left” to be decreasing but in this case it’s not. I don’t know-the graph definitely works but something feels weird about it…

    Besides that I love reading your site!

    I saw this as inspiration to get healthy (increase time left) to fulfill your potential.

    Perhaps it should be a horizontal line, paralleling “time left.” I believe that you have infinite potential at any age.
