ahhhh made me laugh
you pose the same question Solomon did in the book of Ecclesiastes
it's a serious suggestion, you should read it. It's a beautiful book...

And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter

you children might appreciate...
Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun


Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest

itr's not a religious recommendation. It's a marvelous old book of poetry pondering the exact question you ask.

I think it must be a question we all ask if we are blessed and lucky
