Michael, what if life isn’t just about the measurable parts. As you say,
“What are the benchmarks that you will be measuring yourself by”
I mean measuring yourself agains the crowd or the goals you have set, I guess are good metrics for knowing you are getting ahead. But then what?
When does getting ahead ever stop for creating depth to life? What does that look like?
When you say this, “The mind needs a tangible visualization of the trajectory of your ultimate happy life”.
It makes me think about the “Why” of life.
