The meaning of life might not have one absolute definition. Maybe everyone has to come to their own personal conclusion about what life means to them. I like to think about what I would most likely regret when looking back on my life lived and try to adjust my actions accordingly:

  • working towards goals but also not to forget to cherish every step along the way
  • learning new skills and putting them to use
  • sharing ones learnings and thoughts with others
  • contributing and maximizing ones positive impact on this world
  • always challenging and improving the status quo

 

If you are looking for inspiration on this and similar topics I can’t recommend the many available recordings of Alan Watts enough.

His lecture on why life is not a journey really resonates with me.

 

 

Or Alan Watts thoughts on how to enjoy life? Acquire skills.
