How do you calculate your age? Is it calculated through achievement or impact in society or age only?

Many people live a certain age, sometimes they leave this life without the influence of those around them or leave a positive impact that benefits the community after their departure.
How do you calculate your age? Is it calculated through achievement or impact in society or age only?.

How do you know you're old? In younger years I would not have come to the following answer, but it corresponds exactly to what I do regularly: I read the obituaries in the newspaper and see that many people who have just died were younger than I am. A few older ones, who are finally dead, I also discover in the mourning advertisements. I used not to be interested in this "reading" at all.

Age is calculated by the seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years. It is very simple to know ones age by adding all these (given above) together.

Age could be calculated in any way, numbers are concrete form of calculating age, others are abstract way to see age, and the difference one maked in other people's lives can be true indicator, how actually one lived.

I think that age is related to your achievements that honors not disgracing you. Look to our Prophet Mohammad you feel he is with you always as humanity can never forget his high standard achievements.

I have no calculation for age, unfortunately I have a lot to do to finish some projejcts which cost a lot of valuable life time, but it is for posteriority. So many people have lost their influence after their death, the number of them I am not interested to increase, no, things run quite normal, and okay.

Age can serve as legitimation or justification for different purposes. Sometimes one is proud that one has still achieved a certain achievement despite one's advanced age, sometimes one's own age serves to use achievements that are no longer quite as good as they used to be as an explanation. I think that is quite normal. Society doesn't play an important role in this proceeding.

Though age is simply a number but there are many things to be considered. Say, a man 60 years with hard working is one kind when another man 60 years with almost nothing or in nuisance in the society is another consideration. Finally, for the considerations of empirical experiences to be considered only for age, nothing more.

One should have a good relationship to one's age at every age. There are many people who want to forget their old age through facial surgery, hair colouring or youthful clothing. A long-lasting inner contentment cannot be produced by such cosmetics.
