Thought of the day

The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life. I saw following possible sources for meaning:
  • in work (doing something significant)
  • in love (caring for another person)
  • in courage (doing what was right even in difficult times)
  • in acceptance (learning to move ahead with experiences from my mistakes and failures)

PS: this one again came from my sister :-)

8 questions and a why: Seth Godin

Who are you trying to please?
What are you promising?
How much money are you trying to make?
How much freedom are you willing to trade for opportunity?
What are you trying to change?
What do you want people to say about you?
Which people?
Do we care about you?
(and after each answer, ask 'why?')
