It would not be pretty. Most people are not ready to die.
So no, it wouldnt be the greatest day for me.

of my labor. So today would be a pretty bad day. I don't know if thats what your getting at, but like you say, all replies are good replies?

we can only enjoy happiness - for more than a few minutes, I mean - in anticipation of a future...
I say, live every day as if you had 5000 years to live!

There is something to that, isn't there? I wonder if it must be a future in which we participate personally (for example, is it enough that descendants will benefit,...).
So, it is interesting to think about how many years would be optimal. Maybe time to live is like what they say about inherited money: The ideal thing is to have enough to do anything you want, but not so much that you don't want to do anything .
