"What’s the point of being better than someone else?" - Noam Chomsky
I read this quote a little while ago and it has been on my mind since then.
I have also been reading a variety of things, The Power of Myth with Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, The Mindful Carnivore by Tovar Cerulli, to name a few.
And I have just begun my sort of synthesis of what I’ve been reading, thinking and learning and I thought I’d share.
Success. Why is it measured against anyone else?
Success should be how you personally define it. Work where you want and however much you want/can.
Don’t get sucked into the corporate ladder, it benefits few.
Enjoy your life while you can.
Learn if you want. Be healthy. Be kind.
