Daily Prompt: Advantage of foresight

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, if at all?

While it may seem like a good option, accepting the power to predict the future would only lead to disappointment.

Consider this scenario. You accept the power, shine your light to foresee the future and lose one valuable day of life. You don’t like everything you see, so you make a change. But, now you need to foresee the future again, in order to see what impact your change made. The cycle would be endless. That is, until you run out of days. Game over. Then, you realize that every moment has been wasted in frantic attempts to repair your life with no time left to appreciate the simple joys in life.

Where is the power in that scenario? Keep me in the dark!
