He lives life in the fast lane (he leads a somewhat high-paced (if not risky) existence)
He lives like there was no tomorrow (he tries to profit from each day)
HOwever, doesn't the second sentence suggest desperation? Or does it only sound so to me, but not to Americans or Frenchpeople who are said to love adventurous life?
Above is my confusion. Could someone help me figure it out?
Thanks in advance!

    Yes, "He lives like there is no tomorrow." is correct.
    It does not mean he tries to profit from each day, but that he lives somewhat recklessly, with no thought about what will happen in the future.
