Life is too precious

You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch — each time you use your power, it costs you one day (as in, you’ll live one day less). How would you use this power, it at all?

Life is too precious to play this game. I have no interest in knowing the future, that I cannot change, if that’ll cost me my life. I’ll better confront the surprises of day by day and enjoy my complete time here. Not a second less. I wont give a day of my life for predict the future, even if this grants me a lot of money or fame. I don’t know much time has been given to me, nor how long will I last, but I want it all.

Advantage of Foresight.
