    Life cannot be measured by summary statistics, such as the money accumulated in the banks, or the shares acquired in the stock market, or the number of real estates owned etc. In my view, the only valuable metric that would quantify your life most accurately is the number of lives you were able to help selflessly, and influence most positively. The true purpose of human life is very noble IMHO....always above and beyond mere metrics of materialistic matters.
